Re: rx 6600 FANs very LOUD

It is possible the HFC (fan control) firmware is missing. You can verify this from the MP/iLO using the "sysrev" command from the command menu. A typical listing should look something like the following:

MP FW : F.02.17
BMC FW : 05.21
EFI FW : ROM A 06.20, ROM B 05.66
System FW : ROM A 03.01, ROM B 02.03, Boot ROM A
PDH FW : 50.07
DHPC FW : 01.23
UCIO FW : 03.0b
PRS FW : 00.08 UpSeqRev: 0c, DownSeqRev: 08
HFC FW : 00.04 SetRev: 00 <=======

If the last line, HFC FW, is missing, that is likely your problem and you will need to update to the current firmware version, which is 03.01A

You can get there using the following URL

http://www.hp.com/#Support

enter "rx6600" in the product name/number field, then select "Cross operating system (BIOS, Firmware, Diagnostics, etc.)" and finally "Firmware - System"

From here you can download and install the "rx3600 and rx6600 System, BMC, and iLO2 MP Firmware"

Re: rx 6600 FANs very LOUD

A failed fan will cause the remaining fans to run on full speed.
Please check if the fans are all ok.

Log on to the MP and run "ps", example:

MP:CM> ps


PS

For System Processor Status see the SS command.

System Power state: On

System Power usage: 546 Watts

Temperature : Normal





Power supplies State

-----------------------------------------------------------

Power Supply 0 Normal

Power Supply 1 Normal



Fans State

-----------------------------------------------------------

System Fan 1 Normal

System Fan 2 Normal

System Fan 3 Normal

System Fan 4 Normal

System Fan 5 Normal

System Fan 6 Normal



Hope this helps!

Torsten.

Re: rx 6600 FANs very LOUD

It is a firmware related problem.

See JP Watsons post.

(last line HFC in output is missing).

You need to install this:

http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/SoftwareDescription.jsp?lang=en&cc=us&prodTypeId=15351&prodSeriesId=3257036&prodNameId=3257037&swEnvOID=54&swLang=13&mode=2&taskId=135&swItem=ux-59550-1

Follow the release notes!


"Note: If the HFC FW revision is not displayed using the MP SYSREV command after the firmware update, the update of HFC firmware may not have been successful. To resolve, cycle AC power and try the update again. "

Hope this helps!
Regards
Torsten.
