Thermal Degraded Action "Shutdown". What does it mean?

Hi all,

What exactly means the Thermal Degraded Action "shutdown" when it is triggerd. Does this function simply "switch off" the machine, or is the OS signaled to shut down? Do i need a special driver to shut down the OS (W2K3) first?

We use HP Systems Insight Manager and the corresponding drivers on the Servers (DL380G3).

TIA
Uwe

Page 28 of the "HP ProLiant DL380 Generation 3 Server Maintenance and Service Guide" -

With the Health Driver loaded and Thermal Shutdown enabled in RBSU, the Health Driver performs an orderly shutdown if it detects a cautionary temperature level. If the server detects a critical temperature level before the orderly shutdown occurs, the server performs an immediate shutdown. Additionally, the Health Driver performs an orderly shutdown if the following minimum requirements are not met: one working fan in the I/O zone, five working fans in the processor zone, and one working fan in the power supply zone.

â Without Health Driver loaded, the server performs an immediate shutdown if it detects a critical temperature level.
IMPORTANT: An immediate shutdown is a hardware-controlled function and it overrides any firmware or software ac

If you're able to open the System Management HomePage,and if you click on Temperature status, there is a Question Mark which redirects to help. After i found this post, i clicked there and i got a very good explanation about the status and Actions.
It may help..
