Loud Dl385 G2

Any ideas about why my HP is so loud? It's at a satellite office and he's
sending me a pic of the front. IML doesn't show any problems.

TIA

    I've got a dl320s that's the loudest thing I've ever heard. Too many dad
    gum fans in there.

    Fans might be spinning up if the location of the server is getting warm.
    That wouldn't cause anything to light up on the front of the server. If
    it's got iLO2 you might be able to get some environmental info from it.

    Does it have the Insight Management Agents loaded? Some of the
    Proliants will spin their fans at full noise until the management
    agents load.

  • Not sure about the HP's, but on our IBM's with dual power-supplies, if one
    PSU is bad or not plugged-in, then the other PSU has to work harder and the
    fans start screaming.

    ding ding... yes... this is the correct answer (I work at an all hp
    shop)

    Perhaps not if it just suddenly started happening, unless someone
    suddenly unloaded the agents. If it's a sudden thing with no software
    config changes, it's more likely that heat is causing the fans to spin
    at faster RPMs.

  • I wondered that too. I suppose IML would have shown me that though.

    Thanks!

  • Wouldn't they load if I did CPQIML?

    (As a relevant aside, they weren't loaded until I loaded them today.)
    Wonder if it got quiter after that?

    Thanks!

    Not sure. Never really looked closely at which command does it.

    After loading the command I can't hear them, HTH :-D
  • I can't hear them either. HTH
