BL40 Overheating problem

In the IML viewer on a BL40p I have the error 'System Overheating (Zone 10, Location CPU, Temperature 70C).

As there are 4 CPU's installed, I need to know where Zone 10 is located.

Thanks for your comments

Re: BL40 Overheating problem

Hi Stijn Matthys,

Has per the document there are only 2 Zones in this BL40 server Processor Cooling Zone and SCSI Storage Cooling Zone. And totally 9 fans. I have attached the DOC.

Not sure why IML is reporting Zone 10.
What I would advice is:

Open System Management Homepage(SMH) select Environment under System and it will give you the complete information on Temperature Sensors and Fault Tolerant Fans. Based on that informed replace any fan if it has failed.
