query led status

Hi!

Is it possible the query the led-status/reason from the front-panel of an lc1000 using linux?
In my case I have a fan-warning but I don't want to shutdown the machine now. I would like to know the exact reason for this warning.

regards
Detlef

Re: query led status

Shalom,

This type of information is obtained by installing a utility from the hardware manufacturer.

If it were an HP server, I'd install PSP, and it has utilities to display, command line or web interface the information you seek.

Re: query led status

Welcome to the ITRC Forums!

LC1000 sounds like a NetServer, not a Proliant. The NetServer and Proliant product lines are very different.

So I think PSP (=Proliant Support Pack) is not appropriate here.

The remote management technology in this old server was known as Integrated Remote Assistant. It used a serial port for management access. It was configured using a DOS boot floppy containing a special configuration utility program.

So if you don't have the Remote Assistant already set up, I think you're not going to be able to start using it without shutting down the OS first.

Once configured, you might be able to use a serial cable to access the event log while the server is running.

Documentation for the Integrated Remote Assistant:

Re: query led status

To Clarify, I gave PSP as an example as I did not recognize the server name.

Net servers also have utilities for the OS that may answer your question.
