HP ProLiant ML350e Gen8 Second Processor and Fans

Hi folks,

 

  I've recently installed a second processor in our server as well as Fan 4 into the system, however during bootup I get an error that Fan4 is not installed and the server shuts down.  Anybody have this issue before?  Also, are all 4 fans required for a dual proc configuration?  I only have fans 2, 3, and 4 installed at the moment.

 

Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated.

 

Thanks.

Maybe the cable for fan4 is not prperly connected? The manual says fans 1 and 4 are optional (for redundancy). This is different to the ML350p Gen8.

Hope this helps!

It's definitely connected properly, I even swapped two of the fans. I should say this is the first time bringing it up, I never booted it with 1 processor.

Tried booting with just 1 proc and it works just fine, as soon as I put the other proc in I get the 1161 - Fan 4 Missing

Sure this is the "e" model?

Hi,

 

The HP ProLiant ML350e Gen8 Server can contain up to four fans. The middle two fans, 2 and 3, are required for a single processor system. Fans 2, 3, and 4 are required for a two processor system. Fan 1 is considered redundant and is recommended but not required. All fan slots must contain a fan or a fan blank.

 

 

Regards,

Thanks Lincy,

 

  Okay, I'm not sure why Fan 4 is coming up with 1611 missing then.  I'll try and pull them out and plug them in again.

 

Thanks.

Re: HP ProLiant ML350e Gen8 Second Processor and Fans

I found the same information about the "p" model, but "e" model was different.

 

However, if you swapped already the fans and it is surely in slot 4 not 1, then the board has most likely a problem.


Hope this helps!
