ML350 G5 "Power supply error detected over voltage - Power supply error detected over current"

Hello everyone

 

I'm monitoring a remote server using Microsoft Operations Manager and recently received a "HP Hardware Component: Power Status" Critical Error.  When I logged onto the server to check the power supply status via the System Management Homepage, I saw the error message stated in the subject line of this post.

 

I am assuming that at some point the voltage and current of the power being fed into the power supply exceeded normal levels and generated this alert.  However, I don't know if the power supply has been damaged in some way or if this this just an informational alert logged for historical purposes.

 

I have tried clearing the Integrated Management Log and rebooting the server, however the error message still persists.  I would be grateful if someone could let me know what I need to do to resolve this problem please.

 

 

Thanks

 

Mike

Hi,

well, I would be inclined to replace the PSU. You never know what kind of damage a malfunctioning PSU can bring to other components in the machine.

But if you want to make sure it's nothing else you could update firmware/BIOS and the SMH. You could also try to swap the PSU in case you have dual in this server.

You can find many meanings of errors reported by reviewing the document: http://bizsupport2.austin.hp.com/bc/docs/support/SupportManual/c02533984/c02533984.pdf

Such as...

32768 (Power supply error detected failure) —If
the power supply firmware detected a failure
• 32769 (Power supply error detected over voltage)
—If the power supply firmware detected an over
voltage condition
• 32770 (Power supply error detected over current)
—If the power supply firmware detected an over
current condition
• 32771 (Power supply error detected over
temperature) —If the power supply firmware
detected an over-heat condition
• 32772 (Power supply error detected input loss) —If
the power supply firmware detected a failure due
to input power loss
• 32773 (Power supply error detected fan failure) —
If the power supply firmware detected a fan failure
condition within the power supply
• 32774 (Power supply warning detected voltage in
high) —If the power supply firmware detected an
input voltage high warning condition
• 32775 (Power supply warning detected voltage in
low) —If the power supply firmware detected an
input voltage low warning condition
• 32776 (Power supply warning detected voltage out
high) —If the power supply firmware detected an
output voltage high warning condition
• 32777 (Power supply warning detected voltage out
low) —If the power supply firmware detected an
output voltage low warning condition
• 32778 (Power supply warning inlet temperature
high) —If the power supply firmware detected an
power supply inlet air temperature high warning
condition
• 32779 (Power supply warning internal temperature
high) —If the power supply firmware detected the
power supply’s internal air temperature high
warning condition
• 32780 (Power supply warning vaux high) —If the
power supply firmware detected the voltage is too
high for auxilary power
• 32781 (Power supply warning vaux low) —If the
power supply firmware detected the voltage is too
low for auxilary power

Mike,
Their are quite known issues with ML350 G5 PSU/PSU backplane , get a replacement 403781-001 PSU to have the current PSU's replaced post which we can check for the errors
