HP Proliant DL380 G5 FAN SPEED




The Server fans speed up uncontrollably and remain at seemingly full speed indefinitely

A full shutdown and cold start will shunt the fans down again for a few days

A reboot will have no affect on the fan speed



HP Proliant DL380 G5

Windows Server 2008 R2 Standard x64

All ProLiant Support Pack and firmware updates are installed

HP System Management and Management Agents Installed

The system reports as per the attachments

The fan speed in ILO does not seem to change and is clearly reporting incorrectly, as does the fan speeds in the Insight Diagnostics Online Edition


Any help/suggestions ?

Many Thanks

Re: HP Proliant DL380 G5 FAN SPEED


are all fans doing this?

I can see no attachment.

Maybe it's a hardware issue?
Did you look in BIOS for any settings?
