Black screen blade issue


Black screen blade issue

I don't know the best way to explain it but I've seen multiple servers (BL685c G7 and BL460 G6/G1) that seem to just freeze. I haven't been able to narrow it down to the operating system or something up with the enclosure/blades.


the strange thing is it is pingable but you can't connect to it. When you open ILO the screen is just black which forces me to do a hard reset on the server.


However OA shows that the server is online and no errors or anything coming from OA. I usually see this every couple to few months and just wondering if anyone else has been experiencing it.
