Win Server 2003
IBM xSeries 345
Today (Saturday) I decided to come in to hook up my new exabyte tape library to the data server. I opened the server up and installed the additional SCSI card for external exabyte tape library in slot 1
On boot I get error '2 standby devices not rersponding or found at new location'
So I decided to remove the new scsi card, on boot still get the above error so I open it up again and reseat the IBM ServeRAID card in slot 2.
On boot now gets to IBM startup page finding the two processors, looks at the memory and then hangs. On the light path diagnostics the NMI is lit and about 60 seconds later it restarts with the same thing. In the manual it says that a Nonmaskable interrupt occurred.
In the diagnostics table it says 'The PCI BUS LED will probably also be on' and 'If the PCI BUS LED is on, follow the instructions for those LEDs. If the PCI BUS LED is not on, restart the server..The PCI led is not on so I restart the server (multiple times) with the same error.
I cannot get into any diagnostics and it does not boot from CD or floppy (it doesnt even get this far)
There is not much info on the NMI led error on the net so I am not sure what to do but I presume:
I messed up the BIOS somehow?
or some other hardware issue?
It looks like the people below had a similar thing happen:
Need desperate help with this one please!
