PPM Failure - DL380 G3

Hi all!


I've just got a 2nd-hand DL380 G3 and I am a little puzzled with something...


There are 2 CPUs installed along with 2 PPMs. Both the PPMs' LEDs are orange (indicating a failure), system health LED is red and the server is not displaying any video output.


I managed to get hold of a known working PPM from a friend's DL380 G3 and still the PPM LEDs are orange.


What else could be causing the PPM failure?

Try an alternate power supply , this has been the most likely cause in the past. System board could be the next possible cause
