Hi, i have a problem with DL380 G4, after i shutdown the server it will not boot untill i unplug the power cables and remove a motherboard battery for 5-10 min. After that it will boot with no problems. If i try to boot without procedure listed above server will start all the system lights will be green and lights on the HDD will have a solid green (green arrows), there will be no BIOS sequence on the screen and it will sit like that for ever.
I change the battery and it did not help.
Thanks

Possibly a bad power supply - swap it out and see what happens.  This one may be on the verge of failing completely.
