Long term issuses with WAY overheated server room
Posted on 2008-10-13
My server room spent at least 24 hours at 120 degrees plus. The smell of burnt electronics still looms 24 hours after repair.
All systems came back on and are currently running but some still have that electronic burn smell to them.
Most of my servers are all 2U Dell servers ranging from the 2550 series to the 2950 series. I do have four blade servers, the 1955 models. (I do actually think it was the blade box that may have saved all of my servers. It had the back of the server rack around 20 degrees cooler than the rest of the room.)
I have many HP switches, a cymphonix box and barracuda. The cymphonix and barracuda smell the worst.
I have an APC Environment monitor but somewhere along the way it stopped working.
Anything I should worry about or look out for specifically?
