HP Proliant ML 350 G4 - Noisy fan

Hi everyone,
I have a big issue with our server, it's always been noisy but more noisy these days, I am a newly appointed Net Admin, hence this problem is now mine. It's running server 2003, no recent patches have been applied as per my understanding? WHAT CAN I DO ? Thanks for all your replies. R

Re: HP Proliant ML 350 G4 - Noisy fan


basic troubleshooting to try to fix that issue would be:

- update System ROM (BIOS)

- update Proliant Support Pack

- clear NVRAM (check attached picture)
1. Power down the server.
2. Remove the server cover.
3. Locate the System Maintenance Switch, position S6, and move the switch to the "On" position.
4. Power the server back on until Power-On Self-Test begins.
5. After POST has started, power-cycle the server off.
6. Move the System Maintenance Switch back to the "Off" position.
7. Replace the server cover and power on the system. The server will boot normally.

- if that does not fix the issue replace fan

Fan assembly, 120 mm
