ESXi 4.1 reports high temperature on BL490c G7

Hi all

I've just setup the blade system with ESXi 4.1.0, 348481 downloaded from HP. I opened the Configuration->Hardware->Health Status and saw that there's a warning.

It's under Temperature and the item names are "System Board 2 13-Chassis Exit -- Lower Non-Critical" which reports 78 Degree C.

The server is located in an air-con room which all other temperature are between 20 and 65 C.

I've check the iLO and maximum is 65 C for 09-IOH.

So, I wonder if there's anything wrong with the server or some mis-report.

as this is quite new hardware and ILO is not showing such high temperature, raise a case to HP support - probably needs fix.

I am seeing 78C and 74C on two of our Proliant BL460c G7 on the "system board 2 13-chassis exit"


We are trying to determine if we have suitable air conditioning in the server room.


I have noticed that on the servers that are running SNMP monitoring as well as ICMP monitoring we are showing around 40C for the "system board 2 13-chassis exit".


I am wondering if there is a conversion issue with fahrenheit to celsius, that maybe the ILO temp output seems to be picking up?
