BL460c G6 will not turn on and Led Health blink Red.

Hello, i have a Enclosure C7000 with 10x BL460c G6, and now i installing more one BL460c G6, but this new server will not turn on (Video doesn't apppear in SVC Cable) and the led health blink red. In the status of Enclosure, the Blade is recognize, but even so doesn't recognize the iLO (MAC ADDRESS 00:00:00:00:00:00), and doesn't recognize the ROM version. I already tested on two enclosures (version OA 4.11 and 4.60), but the error remains.

Re: BL460c G6 will not turn on and Led Health blink Red.

It may sound funny but you should check the CMOS battery on the blade mainboard. I had several servers that did not power up because that battery was dead.
If you have a voltmeter the battery should measure 3.0 to 3.2 Volts.
2.9V would still work but I recommend to replace it. If it is below that it may make problems...

When that red LED is blinking, what does the O-Administrator say about the balde? Does it show a red dot? If it says "power error" or "electronic fuse...." then your board is defective.
