No Display on BL460c G6

In a particular enclosure with 12 BL460c G6's

One of the blades isn't showing any display anymore.

Accessing through ILO gives a blank screen, accessing through the SUV-dongle at the front of the server directly also shows the same blank screen.

I've tried booting with minimum config and also switching into maintenance mode (moving maintenance switch #1, #5 and #6 in ON position) without any success.

Also noticed that during the time the server is on, the fans on the enclosure for that area turn at full RPM.

is that a dead board issue? or any other explanations?

Re: No Display on BL460c G6

hi,

so would recommend to open HW call in HP for your blade server.

Re: No Display on BL460c G6

Hi Abdool,

Is there a red or amber LED on the front of the blade when you power it on? Can you check the IML (Integrated Management Log) for this server?

It sounds like either a failed system board or a failed processor, but there are other potential causes. Visit the Onboard Administrator, select your blade, then click the IML Log tab. If this doesn't provide answers then you will need to call HP support.

good luck!

Hi guys,


thanks all for your contribution.


WFH-WI - no red light on the blade, didn't get much info from the IML log either.

I changed the system board earlier - server is up and running fine now.
