Coming soon: a much simpler Servers and Operating Systems section of the Community. We will combine many of the older boards, and you won't have to click through so many levels to get at the information you need. If you are looking for an older board and do not find it, check the consolidated boards, as the posts are still there.

Re: RX2620 firmware hang

I've seen this problem a great many times.  Once you get the machine booting, update the EFI, System, BMC firmware to the latest available (remember to read the installation notes, especially the requirements).  I've had luck clearing the problem by doing some of the following:

 

1.  Voodoo Raindance: Boot the server.  As the LED's start flashing 1 through 4, remove the power cord.  With the power cord out, tap the power button.  Now replace the power cord, and allow the server to come up to standby.  Attempt to power the machine on again.  If that doesn't work, repeat pulling power during the flashing LED stage 2 or more times.

 

2. Re-seating the system memory has helped when 1 didn't.

 

Good luck.
