Proliant DL380 Power Supply Fan

Is the cooling fan for the primary power supply propietary, or can I replace it (after removing the fan assembly/cover, of course) with any 92mm 4-wire fan?

Thanks in advance.

Re: Proliant DL380 Power Supply Fan

Thanks for the quick reply...

That is a good question. I'm actually fielding this for someone, and I know that they'll have no idea. What can I tell them to look for on the machine to identify the version?

Or would it be easier for me to just ask the question for all (3) versions?

Re: Proliant DL380 Power Supply Fan

hi

well in fact there are 5 models (G1 ... G5)

you can see the model in the system management homepage?
on BIOS too, in ilo too

or using the serial number go to this website
http://h50001.www5.hp.com/ewc/EntResultRouter

and enter the Serial number you're going to get that information also.

Re: Proliant DL380 Power Supply Fan

OK...

To complicate this as much as possible, the server won't boot (so no access to System Management or the POST screen) and the person assures me she can find nothing anywhere on the server that identifies itself as a serial number.

Is there a "generic" DL380?

Re: Proliant DL380 Power Supply Fan

There should be a small barcode label attached to the front or on a pullout that identifies the serial number.

If this is DL380G2 or greater, it should have an iLO processor in it that could be connected to and used to read the Integrated Management Log.

Re: Proliant DL380 Power Supply Fan

Thank you so much for the information - it is comforting to know we can at least replace the part.

My abiding question, however, is whether or not this part is proprietary? The reason I ask is because the server belongs to a small privately-funded school with extremely limited financial means (the server itself was donated and is therefore lacking any warranty or support package). Due to its limited budget, I'd like to know if I can simply replace the part in question with a 92mm smart fan to which I have access?

Thanks again!
