Re: DL360 server acting ... odd ...
Just a shot in the dark but are all of the firmwares on the server current?

I posted something to the HP Forums about this, see if I get anything
over the weekend, but figured I'd pop a note to the list to see if
anyone else has experienced something like this ... its not a FreeBSD
issue, since its not getting to that point yet ...
Here's what I've posted to the Forums ... maybe someone here has an
idea? Or do I have a bad server?
Just picked up one of these things, and its a beauty ... but I'm
getting *really* odd behaviour ...
I login through iLO, open up Remote Console then go to Virtual Devices
to power up ... but all that seems to happen is it goes from:
Monitored Server Is Powered Down.
Monitored Server Console Is In An Unsupported Text Mode.
And then just sits there ... eventually, I hear two beeps come out of
The reason why this is odd ... I've already powered this server up,
installed an operating system on it, rebooted several times,
everything was great ... I unplugged the server from the wall (those
fans can be annoying) two days ago, haven't moved the server ... just
plugged it back in today to do some more work on it ...
I'm at a loss ... she was working great :(
Kinda makes me nervous to deploy it ...
What should I be looking at?
Followed up by:
k, this is odd ... I took the cover off of the box, since there are
'flashing lights' on the inside ... plug'd it back in, boots fine ...
replug in the power supplies again, doesn't boot fine ...
when it boots fine, its consistent ... I can be in iLO and type 'power
off' / 'power on' all I want and it boots fine ... when it doesn't
boot, it never boots ...
power seems to be fine in all cases ... fans all power up, drives
power up, and lights flicker on the RAID controller ...
The one thing that has botherd me though ... the 'charging' light on
the RAID controller always appears on ... bad battery? or is this
Right now, after unplugging it from the wall and back in again, I've
got the server booted up and in the OS, and it seems to be running
nicely ... if I shut it down, and try unplugging it from the wall and
back in again, it has a 50-50 chance of booting ...
Everything seems okay, even when it doesn't boot ... I can get into
iLO, I can do 'power on' and hear the fans all wind up, and the drive
lights all come on ... but it does those 2 beeps after a period of
time, and no POST screen, no nothing ...
When I first set it up, my first thought was memory, so I pulled them
all out, no difference ... re-seated them all and it booted ... so, at
that time, I figured I must have not seated them right the first time
and all was well ...
Thoughts / ideas?
