one of our clients dropped of an IBM xSeries server for us to co-host for them.
its an xSeries 345
with a pentium III 2.4GHz (2 of them)
1.5GB RAM installed
Operating on Windows Server 2000
The issue is that when powerd on the fans race to max which is the norm, but after about 10 seconds there is no change to fans? They stay at what appears to be max revolutions for the entire time we have had the server on for, which so far is 20 mins as can't cope with the noise in the office anymore.
Are there any reasons for this, is this norm for an IBM sever of this age???
