DL360G3 won't power up.

Installed extra power supply, processor (+cooler & Power mod.), RAM in a new DL360G3.
Server won't power up. The dipswitches are all set to default, except the #4 on SW1. (set to ON).
When the power cables are inserted, the leds blink one time, the power led in the power button goes green, the power supply fans start rotating, but after 12 seconds, the power led goes back to amber.
Set the "enable debug leds" switch to on and the two leds closest to HIGH (When in front of server the two nearest to the right side) are blinking alternatly.

When the power button is pressed, the power led turns green, the CPU fans start rotating but stop immediately. No screens, no beeps, no nothing...

Any Idea?
Kind regards, Marc

Have you tried to reset the configuration settings stored in ROM?

Set SW2 pin 6 to ON and clear the RBSU. Then go back in and reset the configurations.

Hi Marc, when the riser is removed in the dl360 g3 and 2nd power supply is installed , you must make the system aware of this change for the server to post. on the switch bank SW1 - Redundant Power Supply / PCI Slot Switch Settings, you must have sw4 turned on to accept 2nd power supply. also check to make sure processors are seated correctly and ppms

Well the server never makes it into the BIOS. I will go reseat all options.

The number 4 on SW1 was already set to on.
