ES40 console still reporting fan failed after replacement

I have recently replaced System Fan#3 on an AlphaServer ES40. Is there another method to clear the error other than >>>clear_error all
at the console prompt? It does not go away after a power off and on. What else to check?

Thanks and Regards,
Matt

Hi Matthew,

-The ES40 Server Could Give you the Error After Replacement of Fan . Incase the Slot is Faulty

- Try Swapping the Fan In Slot 3 With Slot 4 & Check if the Error Goes

- At the prompt do a clear_error_all and power cycle the system.
If this doesn't resolve the error Swap PCI backplane as fan logic must be at fault.

Well turns out that the PCI cage was at fault...
