I have a blinking amber status LED on a s5000psl intel server board. The tech specs read:

Non-fatal alarym - system is likely to fail
* Critical voltage threshold crossed
* VRD hot asserted
* Minimum number of fans to cool the system not present or failed
* In non-sparing and non-mirroring mode if the threshold of ten correctable errors is crossed within the window.

It's not the fan, and the hard drives are mirrored. What is the correction to the other two? Do I need to get a new board?

Check the volateges on your power supply.

Also see if the BIOS can reset the LED to see if it is a persistat issue or transient.

I hope this helps !

Figured out the answer:

The server chassis was not properly selected during deployment.

To update your server:
0. Copy all the files in S5000_FSL_40 to a floppy disk (we'll call this the update floppy).
1. Use boot622.exe to create a DOS 6.22 bootable floppy.
2. Plug in your Sony external floppy drive to the USB port.
3. Reboot the server, and enter the BIOS by hitting F2 when prompted at the Intel Server Logo screen.
4. Under boot options, Make sure the boot order is:
        a. USB Floppy
        b. CD ROM
        c. Hard drives
5. Press F10 to save changes and reboot.
6. Boot with the DOS bootable floppy.
7. Once booted, swap the bootable floppy for the update floppy.
8. run the following command: A:> FRUSDR /CFG MASTER.CFG
9. Here are the answers to the wizard:
        a) you do not have a fun plugged into system fan 1
        b. Your chassis is a SC5299BR
        c) Answer no for all [Y/N] questions.
10. Shut down the server, and unplug it.
11. Wait 2 minutes
12. Restart server.
