ML150G5 Lockup Problem

Hello Fiends

A have an issue with a brand new ML 150G5 which is locking up after approx two days of work.The server is running Windows 2008 x64 an d a Hyper-V with 4 VM (W2k3 & W2k8).After the lockup we have a blank screen and the front led is blinking red.I've also observed that both CPU led's (Not mentioned in the M&SG)on the mainboard are shining Red.Since now the motherboard and CPU 0 had beed replaced without any change.

The configuration follows :

HP ML150G5 E5405 1P SP6748GO Server
Product # 470064-709
Dual XEON E5405 x2
6GB of Memory (2x2GB+2x1GB)
LSI/HP SC40GE SATA/SAS Controller
3 x SATA Drives

The W2K8 system log shows no errors before any of those hungups but the BMC hardware log does :

28.09.2008 (08:24)
Generator ID : 20
SENSOR TYPE : 07 (Processor)
SENSOR NUMBER : 3C
DIR TYPE : 03
EVENT DATA :01 FF FF

Generator ID : 20

Update the Server FW (BIOS)
Clear CMOS (in case its picking up old faults from the IML. Yes, Ive seen this before!)

Sorry just spotted that the server may not be running...

In which case disconnect power and press the CMOS button on the system board.

Hello Mark

The Bios is the newest one.After each hung up the machine is operating normally for a period of about two days.I did all possible updates and tests and have no idea how to go further :(

Hi Mark

The ML150G5 has an embedded BMC controller accesible form RBSU advanced menu.

I have copied all the entries directly from there.

Warm regards

Re: ML150G5 Lockup Problem

hi

you say CPU 0 has been replaced? why only 1 proc? only one proc has red LED when server locks up or both?

are you running with only the replaced proc now?

bye
Didn't your momma teach you to say thanks!
