DL380 G9

I have recently installed DL80 G10 server with dual gold processor which acts as Vmware EXSI host. 

Every few minutes the fans kick on and go full speed for few seconds and then quitens down. This it repeats every 4-5 minutes. I notice the fan 4-5-6 are showing little higher speed than of fan 1-2-3.

Changed the setting from “Thermal Configuration” to “Optimal Cooling” From RBSU and even cold booted the server. Updated the firmware to newest version.

If I set the power regulator settings to STATIC LOW POWER MODE then the server quiets down and everything seems good. Except as I undertand it, this decreases the server performace.  Any one have any ideas?

Re: DL380 G10

I used the ISO image to apply the firmware upgrade. I'm running VMware 7.0 hypervisor on the DL380 G10.

I belive you can do the firmware upgrade thru the iLO interface.

I'm open to your valuable suggestion either ISO, thru iLO or thru USB.

Thank you.

Re: DL380 G10

Use the USBKeyUtility inside the ISO to create an USB.

Add to the packages folder:

BIOS 2.34 https://support.hpe.com/hpsc/swd/public/detail?swItemId=MTX_4267c26073f64f1eb8f2818f61

ILO 2.15 https://support.hpe.com/hpsc/swd/public/detail?swItemId=MTX_e4d782d489484336bc83083f8d

IE https://support.hpe.com/hpsc/swd/public/detail?swItemId=MTX_13c53b2245aa41cd85f32655aa

You always need the *.rpm and *.compsig


Hope this helps!
Regards
Torsten.

Re: DL380 G10

Hi Torsten,

Looks like the lnks you provide are for Linux. I'm using VMware vSphere 7.0

Could you provide me links for the same?

Thank you.

Re: DL380 G10

For booting USB and updating from there you need the linux file format.


Hope this helps!

Re: DL380 G10

Hi Torsten,

Updating to innovation engine firmware 2.2 did the trick. After updating the IEF, I rebooted the server and even removed the power cables for 45 seconds before switching on the server. 

After this the fan noise has compeltely stopped.

Thank you for your recommendation and support received from HPE support.
