Re: DNA_FAN_SLOW -- Should I be worried?

I feel the FAN is about to fail and speed has became slow. So the internal temperature increased?

May be the FAN is on the way to heaven.

Be aware that if temp is not coming down, the "envd" would shutdown the server!

You will want to have this checked out. The DNA is also known as the Cell Controller. There is a fan on it, and yours is running slow. It may be clogged with dust or it may just be going out on you. Either way, the DNA chip is overheating and this will cause you problems.

Be prepared to send the ts99 file to the response center, they will want to analyze it to be certain.

Good luck - Tim
