COMPAQ ES45 systems

Hello HP Technical Support:

We need your suggestion for one of issue with our one of server, we have COMPAQ ES45 systems and It shows on server LED “fan 5 is failed” We also physically have verified and found all the Fans are working ok including fan 5. I am sure that this is a sensor problem which fan 5 is not getting detected on the board.

Can we simply ignore this error or how we can resolve this issue? Pls suggest.

We will appreciate your suggestion?

Re: COMPAQ ES45 systems


it might be a sensor issue but it might also indicate issues beginning to start with fan5 maybe not spinning up to speed. this a redundant fan backing up fan6 (main), what does show power and env in RMC say ?
although theres no immediate issue if you have a service contract i would get the fan replaced as soon as possible.
