No beep on DL360 Gen9 running Ubuntu

Hi,

Using Ubuntu Precise 12.04 on a DL360 Gen9 I can't get the internal buzzer to emit a beep.

I forced the loading of the pcspkr module, which happens without error. I then use the "beep" command but no sound is emitted.

The same software setup worked on DL360 gen8. I also tested the newer Ubuntu Xenial 16.04 with same results.

Any advice ? Was the internal buzzer removed on gen9 ?

# dmesg | grep pcspkr
[ 170.054818] input: PC Speaker as /devices/platform/pcspkr/input/input2

# beep -l 5000

(no sound ...)

I pulled the memory from a unit I had and when powering it on I did hear a beep tone. I can't pinpoint where the noise emits from as it only beeps once and I'm in a very noisy rack room.  I looked over the system board and didn't readily identify a piezo speaker/buzzer that one would expect to see.

Thank you for checking.

Unfortunately it doesn't say if it is still possible to trigger a beep from the OS, as it was before.
