BL20p G2 * 2 power loss after enclosure move

I have two BL20p G2 servers that have lost power afer an enclosure move. They dont work in their original slot, or a new slot.

Out of 6 servers I moved, two failed. Either I was very unlucky with these servers being fairly old, or am I doing something that increases the chance of a blade failure when moving blades between enclosures? Couldnt see anything in the user guide.

Basically, I just took the blade out(after being remotely shut down for around 5 minutes), then slotted it in the next enclosure around 30 seconds to 1 minute later.

Re: BL20p G2 * 2 power loss after enclosure move

Dear Ross,

We have had the same kind of trouble with p-class blades (25p and 35p). HP Support changed the power regulator at the blade motherboard which fixed the problem.

We do not move nor power off p-class blades any more. ;)

I've had this too - same as Markku - Power Regulators on the motherboard had to be changed... :(

hi rossb2,
know issue this happens usually when blade is inserted slowly , pull it out re insert it fast, if all is okay fine but if not

, you can hold power button 20 secs see what happens if not power regulator needs changing


Hp are aware of this issue,
