Re: POWER SUPPLY SHOWING AMBER LIGHT

Hi Pradip,

Amber light indicates that the Power supply status is degraded.
Please check the Integrated management log from Programs>Hp system Tools> Integrated Management log to check the status of your power supply.
May be you can try to re-seat the Power supply to check.

Hi Pradip,

Amber light indicates that the power supply is in a degraded state, Try re-seating the power supply to check if it helps.

Re: POWER SUPPLY SHOWING AMBER LIGHT

for the offline diagnostic (insight diagnostic offline)

you should have the SMARTSTART CD you have to reboot the server with this CD and that will give you the option to make the offline diagnostic

but I think if you see that the Power is degrading again(ask for another), but if the you want to be sure you just need do the IML which inside in the HP Tools in windows of course if you installed Proliant Support Pack

see the attached file
The IML (Integrated Management Log) will report all the errors including POST Errors so you will see what's happening with the power supply
