ML350 G5 Server died? Replace on same series Server will it work?

Hi all,

 

I have one of ML350 G5 LFF E200i server died on today >.<

 

It used over five year. And today it can't power on, all fans not running when press the power button, the front panel under the Grenn Light of Power button have two red small light flash together one second!

 

What is wrong on it?

 

And this server can find on 2nd market.

 

I am wonder, do my Window Server 2003 R2 (5 x 250G SATA HDD on E200i RAID 10) can just unplug all the HDD then plug them again to the 2nd same model ML350 G5 then all thing working again??

 

I hope can read back the data in those Harddriver. And suggestion are welcome. And it is running AD DC in it >.<

 

Thank you of your time and help.

 

Best Regards,

Jimmy Chan

If you find a ML350 G5 to replace the current one, if you swap all the hard drives, everything should run exactly as your current server. The beauty of SmartArray RAID controllers is that one SmartArray will easily recognize hard drives formatted with another SmartArray controller, to make swapping drives in this fashion easy and practically risk-free. (Of course, nothing's 100% foolproof, so I hope that you have a backup just in case!)

Hi David,

 

First of all, very thank you of your detail answer.

 

One more question there,

 

On the Front Panel LED on my ML350 G5

System power LED = Green
Internal health LED = RED (Flash)
External health LED = RED (Flash)

 

What do this mean general? If you know. But if don't know I am never mind. Real thank you of your help to me.

 

Thank you very much of your time.

You'd be best off logging into your iLO interface and checking for details of why there's a red alert light. It'd be impossible for me to give you an answer based on just the general indicator.

Hi David,

 

I think I am final fix it.

 

By download the HP ML350 G5 User Guide, on Page 70-79 I reading on it.

 

Then know the two RED flashing maybe the power supply failed (Yes, my server bought just one power supply, and using over five year 7/24).

 

Next I go find a 2nd shop who can sell me the same model of this power supply.

 

Thank the God and HP Design, the Server back to general, I not need do the AD DC remove, DFS remove etc on the trouble of time to the software side and all service on it back.

 

Thank you of your time and help and hints.

 

And hope my way can give other userful inform, if your server died, it LED have light, check your User Guide First. Then try find some 2nd hardware to replace it. If work it will save your life and many time.
