ProLiant DL 380 G6 - Starts with 4 fans or I've to by two more?

Dear sirs, I've got a ProLiant DL 380 G6 server. On start it the state LED becames in red and a few seconds after the server shuts down suddenly. I've discovered it happends because two fans are missing. By purchasing the equipment are 4 and 2 missing. Does that mean I have to buy those two fans? It will not start if I don't put those two fans?.
Thanks in advance.

Hi; thanks for reply. I've purchaded this sever in TEchData store, it's a distributor. It came only with 4 fans instead 6, also the DVD is missing and I've have to buy it.
Yesterday I've put the 4 fans in the middle, I mean whithout fans in position 1 and 6, and now it seems that it runs correctly. It's strange, maybe they have to be in a particular position. But it was coincidence, this should be indicated in a site, because you can go crazy thinking that may be the problem. I'll leave it like this during a few days and I'll see if the problem is definitely solved.
Thanks you very much for your help.

The single proc DL380G6 models (Entry or Base models) only ship with 4 fans, the other two have blanks instead. (In a single proc setup only 4 are needed for N+1)

The optional proc kits include the two fans to give the servers a full compliment. There shouldn't be a shutdown unless the server has two procs. (which requires 6 fans for N+1)

Was this server assembled by a third party? (If so, they may have added the second proc and ignored the fans.)

Please list the PN of the server, and the number of procs it currently has.
