Yes, this server will do the following if temperature is getting higher:

- warning
- critical warning
- shutdown
- power off

Hope this helps!

Re: re : rp3440 problem

hi,

yes the server will automatically shutdown if over temp, you should get notifications first with the ems running

in the site prep guide it states this

Over-temperature shutdown +40°C (+104°F)

Re: re : rp3440 problem

While the HP server will shutdown in case of over temperature, don't forget that all your tape drives, disk drives, and network equipment will probably not shutdown and therefore will be damaged by high temperatures. A typical data center that loses air conditioning will rise to very high levels (130 F to 160 F). At that level, most of you equipment (except the rp3440) is permanently ruined and must be replaced.

I would always design a data center with an emergency overtemp sensor for the entire room. Once the maximum temperature is reached (typically 100 F to 110 F) then all power is removed from the center. The equipment is far too expensive to risk damage from a bad air conditioner.
