ProLiant DL388 Gen8 won't power on


Google Translated

After a period of time after power-on, it will enter the standby state, and the health status light flashes red. Pressing the power-on button has no response. The hard disk indicator is off. The memory and power have been checked. The power supply has been tried and replaced, but it has no effect and still cannot be turned on.



Re: ProLiant DL388 Gen8 won't power on


1. Check by drain the server power by disconnecting all Power cables and hold the power button for 30 second.

2. Bring the server to bare minimum configuration and check the status.
i. A minimum of one Processor required per serve.
ii. Install DIMMs to corresponding processor installed
iii. Disconnect all the cable connected to server system board (hard drive back plane etc).

3. If still unable to isolate the issue, then refer Systems Insight Display LED combinations to isolate the issue.
