Adjust Proliant Server Threshold

Can I check is there a way to change the threshold of Proliant server DL580 G3 or DL380 G5? I noticed that it's a bit high....

Would like to enable the thermal shutdown feature.

Thanks in advance.

Re: Adjust Proliant Server Threshold

Hi, if you use this sysman homepage for that server and go to:


tasks -> recovery ->environment - thermal degraded action

you can change parameters here to continue or shutdown. I'm not sure that there is a legitimate way to change the temperature settings, if that is what you are asking?

hope that helps

Re: Adjust Proliant Server Threshold

Thanks for the reply. However, I am looking for changing the value of the threshold of the parts, like CPU, IP Board, Power Supply etc.....The feature which is available at that page is to enable or disable the the degraded action....

Re: Adjust Proliant Server Threshold

Hi, you could use:

ipmitool sensor list

to bring back the list of sensor information on the server. ipmitool can also be used to adjust these settings. example of output from my server:

Temp 1 | 14.000 | degrees C | ok | na | na | -64.000 | na | na | na
Temp 2 | 40.000 | degrees C | ok | na | na | -64.000 | na | na | na
Temp 3 | 40.000 | degrees C | ok | na | na | -64.000 | na | na | na
Temp 4 | 33.000 | degrees C | ok | na | na | -64.000 | na | na | na
Temp 5 | 32.000 | degrees C | ok | na | na | -64.000 | na | na | na
Temp 6 | 37.000 | degrees C | ok | na | na | -64.000 | na | na | na
Temp 7 | 37.000 | degrees C | ok | na | na | -64.000 | na | na | na
Temp 8 | 39.000 | degrees C | ok | na | na | -64.000 | na | na | na
Temp 9 | 36.000 | degrees C | ok | na | na | -64.000 | na | na | na
Temp 10 | 45.000 | degrees C | ok | na | na | -64.000 | na | na | na

hope that helps.

Re: Adjust Proliant Server Threshold

Hi, is this a tool from HP? I know that linux has this package, however is this available in Windows? or if not how should I run this command on the server?

Re: Adjust Proliant Server Threshold

Hi,

a google search seems to say its available for windows as well.

hp did their own implementation of openipmi called hp-OpenIpmi which gets installed when you install the proliant support pack on linux. I'm not sure but guess it must do a similar action for windows install.

try the port for windows here:

http://ipmiutil.sourceforge.net/FILES/ipmiutil-2.4.0-win32.zip

Re: Adjust Proliant Server Threshold

You CANNOT change the threshold values. These values are programmed into the ROM and established during the design phase to protect the components based on their specified thermal characteristics, proximity of the sensor to the protected device and the airflow running past that device. There are 2 thresholds, one for caution and one for critical. When the caution threshold is triggered, an event is generated by the management agent or WBEM/WMI provider, allowing the user to attempt to correct the situation. If "thermal degraded action" is set to shutdown, when the critical threshold is passed a graceful shutdown will be attempted.
