DL160 G5 ROM-Update ->FAN Power 100 percent

I installed the component Online ROM Flash Component for Windows - HP ProLiant DL160 G5 Servers . After this the fan power increased up to 100 percent. Has anyone a solution for this issue?


Re: DL160 G5 ROM-Update ->FAN Power 100 percent



You have to update the Lights-Out 100 Remote Management firmware to the latest version to fix the issue. After the update, the fan will be running at normal speed.


Follow the below link for downloading the latest firmware:
