Dell power edge 2600 is hosed
Posted on 2006-11-29
I have a server at my company ( a dell power edge 2600) that turned itself off yesterday,
and it won't power up. I mean, I turn it on---but it never initializes...and the monitor never recieves the
normal boot video (nothing on the monitor at ALL). We powered off the server (unplugged both ac cords), the ups's are on (one on each ac power cable), and the only thing the server tells me--is the orange blinking light on the front panel.
It's called the "caution indicator" light be dell's product manual. It blinks at a regurlar rate (about on flash per second),
and that's ALL that happens. All power supply indicator leds are green, the drives open/close, the fans all are on, and
I see no other indicator that anything is bad.
Q- what next? Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.
