DL380 G3 - Issue with LED lights when trying to install PCI card

Hopefully someone can help me with this.

I am trying to install a PCI card using the Hot Plug option.

I turned the power off by pressing the PCI Hot Plug button. I then inserted the PCI card. When I pressed the PCI Hot Plug button again nothing happened. The power was not restored to the slot and now none of the LED lights are on.

Thanks

Tom.

Please is there anyone out there that can help me with this?

Without the USB card I can't do any backups.

Thanks again,

Tom.

Hello,

I dont think you can hot add if this is what you trying to do.What is your O/S also
check Quickspec if your card is supported.
Other than this it can only be slot,card,driver.

Thanks for the reply PJ.

The thing is, it was working. We bought a second card for another server (both 2003) when it didn't work. I took the working one out of the first server and tried it on the second. When it didn't work there I returned it to the first server and now the server doesn't recognize it. to boot the green LED lights will not turn back on.

Hi,

You will need to trouble shoot as i have said is the Server live you may need to do a
reboot then take it from there.Can you see the card and driver loaded in windows.I am shortly of for the day so try what i have said as this is the process to fault find.
