DL386 G6 running a little hot

The iLO2 temperature health indicates the system temperature is at 61C, which is above the caution threshold. System has 1 CPU and 4 fans, all ok. How can we lower the system temperature to its normal range?

Yes. It has the latest iLO2 firmware version.
The ambient temperature in the server room is 69F. The airflow vents looked fine.
Attached you can see different temp zones, the Temp zone 29 shows it's at 61C.

Re: DL386 G6 running a little hot

we have noticed that the intake on the front bezel is not as strong as other servers when using the â post-it note testâ : it is not able to hold a post-it note, where as other servers are able to. Would that affect the temperature?

Also, weâ re not sure where on the server the thermometer is located, it simply says â System Zoneâ , and there is no refernce on the inside of the lid as to where it is or in the HP technical specs on the website.
Does anyone know?

We already have the latest BIOS and iLO2 firmware. We are trying to find out where the thermal sensor is located at for the "system zone". Why is the intake air flow is not as strong as other servers?

Re: DL386 G6 running a little hot

How many fans are in the working systems 4 or 6?

See this thread and response from Kozlov:

He had the same Zone 29 issue and was able to resolve it through updating Firmware, Smart Start and the drivers.
