Smart array 6400 on DL140 G3

Installing Smart array 6402 controller on Proliant dl140 G3 cause a starting problem.

Few seconds after power-up  Internal error led coming up and error is logged : CPU0 IERR .   

The same array controller is tested OK on dl140g2 and dl380 g4

update of firmware is not helping

current version:

server ROM : 1.18

Lights-on : 2.21

array 6402:  2.84


Controller is PCI-X 133 64bit  and the server has the same expansion slot.


What can be the problem ?

I can comment regarding the error "CPU0 IERR"

Its mostly related to Temperature or CPU.

Just make sure the fans are working and processor air duct/baffle are in place.


If possible, try with a different CPU.

A similar error "CPU0 IERR" is discussed in this post.

CPU IERR is logged and server can't start only when the array is installed.   Without the board, server is starting normally and no alarms a logged.

Looks like configuration mishmash. It will be helpful if some body has successful installation.
