ML350p G8 - Fans Running 100% almost all the time

ML350p G8 - Fans Running 100% almost all the time

So i have 2 x ML350p G8's - 1 of them has started to run ALL Fan's at full rate very very frequently (like running constantly with only a break of approx 4/5 mins, the slow down break is only approx 1min)

I am a complete newbie when it comes to stuff like and this and these servers so dont even know anything about iLO - so any help would be much appriciated.

I'm not even sure where or how to check logs

Many Thanks in advance - JAMES


Re: ML350p G8 - Fans Running 100% almost all the time


Fans run fast when there is load on the CPU/Hard Disks.  To reduce the fan noise you may try updating the Server BIOS and iLO firmwares which are available here.

You may also consider going through these troubleshooting articles for your server.

Thank You!
