HP StorageWorks X1000 G2 is noisy, fans are running at high speed

the unit was installed some months back. some days back it became noisy, fans are running at high speed. the server room is enough cold, there is no amber light and no indication of error in system management page. still server is accessable.

Hi,

our new X1600 (AP789B) is also very noisy. Is this normal?

Under the preinstalled Windows with all HP Agents it is not quieter.

I have just recieved one of these units (X1600 G2)

 

its stupidly loud. on boot is is fairly noisy, then dueing post it calms down as expected

 

then in windows (storage server 2008 r2 built in) it goes crazy and wont stop until shutdown or rebooted

 

i have worked with proliants for years and this isnt right. any ideas?!

is there any info on this issue?

 

I just received one of these devices, an HP x1600 G2 NAS, and the fan noise is insane.

 

I cant find any settings to adjust the fans like there usually is in the bios as well.

 

please give us some feedback on this!

Dear All,

any solution to this topic? Just received 2 pcs X1400 G2 (base DL320). Fans are running full rpm.

I'm so glad the server  room is on a different floor.....

 

Anybody experiencing the same problem, please post here. Perhaps the amount of posts will result in action at HP.

 

Regards, Peter HAM/DE

Dear All,

I have found a solution that works for me. No, I didin't place the X1400 in another building, it's easier....
If possible add the second RPS and the fans calm down.
Unfortunatley not all DL320 based models support 2 RPSs, but perhaps these models are not affected anyway? Please leave a reply and enlighten me and the others.
Regards from HAM/DE, Peter

Re: HP StorageWorks X1000 G2 is noisy, fans are running at high speed

I just purchased the head unit from the set X1800 (DL380 G7). I can't stand these screaming fans! I never heard another server run this loud. Only one CPU is populated so the extra fans are not present. I can only imagine what this thing would sound like if the extra fans were present.

Please help as I will need a hearing aid soon!

Note: my server has the second RPS populated.

Re: HP StorageWorks X1000 G2 is noisy, fans are running at high speed

I still have the problem I had since I first posted.

 

Today I thought i would check back and see if it was driving anyone else mental which it is!

 

I have 2 PSU's so the Redundant Power Supply (RDS) hole is filled and its been like it since day 1

 

I even reseated both PSU's and no difference at all

 

Come on HP help us out please?!
