ROM Redundancy detected....

Hi all,

I have a Proliant ML370 G2 which on bootup displays the message 'ROM redundancy detected'.

What exactly does this mean?

and that you can select in the RBSU from which ROM to boot from (for testing purposes). It also means that one physical ROM chip can get corrupt and you will still be able to boot the server from the backup ROM.

Re: ROM Redundancy detected....

I have 1 PC and displays same message.
But it also reporting '1615 POWER SUPPLY FAN FAILURE'
than its shutdown in 5 seconds and restart with same error and so on...

How you fix ROM Redundancy and PSU FAN failure?

Its not allowing me to get into BIOS setting.

your answer will be appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

this is an hp storage forum, but all the same the first message is informational and the second probably means exactly what it says - so you'd need to replace the power supply fan (if separate) or the whole power supply if not !
