proliant DL 380 G3

Hi!

DL 380 G3, the manual says, that they always start at normal speed...

But, it's to noise...and the HP sayied that we can not control nothing (only the temperature), because automatically (hardware and Software)....it's true?

best regards

Paulo

Re: proliant DL 380 G3

Paulo:

To limit the noise (fan speed) on the DL380G3 you will need to have:

a) The latest bios: http://h18023.www1.hp.com/support/files/server/us/download/20832.html

and...

b) The latest Health Driver:

Win2K: http://h18023.www1.hp.com/support/files/server/us/download/18416.html

or

Win 2003: http://h18023.www1.hp.com/support/files/server/us/download/18417.html

Re: proliant DL 380 G3

Paulo:

I posted the link to the diskette because I did not know what O/S you had. The online bios updates are usually more up-to-date than the diskettes!

back to the original question... when the O/S loads (i.e., Windows 2003 starts) do the fans slow down?

Re: proliant DL 380 G3

Hi...

After O/S loads (Windows 2003 starts) the fans don't slow down...

it's always the same...

Re: proliant DL 380 G3

on line bios: run executable on the server, server reboot and your done.
Off line bios: run executable that will generate a bootable floppy, boot the server with the floppy make your update, reboot and your done.

About the orignal problem, firmware is always good to have up to date but the only thing that will slow down your fan is the health driver.
