BL20p fail to power up after move

Yesterday our operator moved 1 bl20p g2 blade from one enclosure to another. Red health led lighted up after they put it in the new enclosure and blade does not power up, they tried to move it back but it won't power up in its old location either. HP tech had to be called and motherboard, power module were replaced.

Are the blades this fragile? what might have caused it? HP tech's reply was "one of those things." anyone else got similar experience?

thank you.

Try to keep the ILO firmare updated on all your BL20p and BL25p, there's a bug that makes the server fail to POST after being shut down.

Re: BL20p fail to power up after move

There could be some pins bent... I don't know exactly - there are different symptoms. I suppose that there was no standby power - in such situations the power conv. module should be changed and if problem stays, then systemboard has to be changed.
Ilo also has to be examined...
