Fans regulation on HP Proliant DL160 G6

Hello everyone!
Can I somehow control speed of fans on my hp proliant dl160 g6 without iLO? I mean, is it possible to set exact value of rpm to each fan?
HP System BIOS - 033 (07/01/2013). BMC Firmware version 04.26 (May/08/2013). BMC SDR Version: 2.18.1.34

Re: Fans regulation on HP Proliant DL160 G6

Hello,

First did your search on the internet for your issue ?  I found this link interseting :

https://community.hpe.com/t5/ProLiant-Servers-ML-DL-SL/ML110-G6-LOUD-FAN-noise-at-power-on-Stayed-on/td-p/4755297

The other solution would be to do it with a software able to do it if you have an OS installed, but you may encounter driver issues (OS/software unable to read/set fan speed).

Otherwise, the last solution is to do it with an arduino. Again this has been done with success an you can find step-by-step on internet. The goal is to place arduino between iLO and the fan, and adapte the fan speed without touching the temp sensors, witch still let iLO shut-down the server if the temp is too hight.

 

Have a good day!

Hi ,

I think i found something that might help you in the service and maintainence guide of DL160 gen 6.

https://servak.com.ua/image/manual/emr_na-c01728029-10.pdf    pg 117

The option available in  IPMI Submenu of the BIOS Setup Utility......

• Hardware Health Information—Set temperature and fan rotation rate.

 

Please follow the link and let me know if it helps!!!
