Re: bl45p will not boot

I've had a LOT of trouble with the power converter on P-Class blades. At one stage one was blowing once a week.

It seems every time i have to remove a few blades one of them blow's. I suggest you have this part replaced and see how you go.

Re: bl45p will not boot

thanks, i will look into the power converter(is that in the enclosure or the blade itself?) the transportation shouldn't be a problem cause i moved it myself... all the other blades( bl35p & bl20p) work fine in the enclosure.... any other ideas?
thanks

Re: bl45p will not boot

Jon,

The power convertor is on the blade itself, right at the back of the blade. It has a small heatsink on it.

You can also check here:

http://bizsupport2.austin.hp.com/bc/docs/support/SupportManual/c00300504/c00300504.pdf

I managed to find a video telling you how to replace it. This will show you where it is:

http://h20464.www2.hp.com/resultsCSR.htm?prodSeriesId=429103&MEID=A07254E7-615C-4CC0-B31B-0DF5A74F0E01

It's called a "DC filter module".

Re: bl45p will not boot

Hi, thanks. Ok what i have done is upgrade the firmware on the enclosure and 1u power to 2.40. I have reseated all the components, replaced the ram with known working ram. i have now replaced the dc filter module. How do i find out what is wrong here? the server is configured to auto power up so when i put it in the enclosure it tries to power up for 1 second than goes off and the red health led comes up.... any other ideas?
thanks everyone

Jon,

Please assign points to your answers to reward the people who take the time to assist others.

I'm in Australia as well and I use a 3rd party company for the support on my blades. HP just never seem to have parts in stock and i needed to have MAX uptime on the servers. We've found with their service we don't have a need for a "redundant" server for all but 1 of our servers. They're a bit more expensive than HP carepack if you buy it with the server, but they don't get more expensive when it get's older. I've still got an proliant 1850R covered with them (it has to be 10 years old).

Let me know if you'd like details.
