Compaq Proliant DL380 G3 Noise
Posted on 2009-04-27
I've just gained a Compaq Proliant DL380 G3 Server for a small office, and allthough its just what we want, the noise the fans generate is immense!, it sounds like ive just parked up a 747 in the office, and the workers are moaning. We dont have a spare office or storeroom we can hide it in, and we can't afford the expence of a server cabinet for 1 single server.
I saw in some other posts that with the Compaq Management System (Proliant Support Pack) that should be a way to set the fans to a quieter speed/tone? Is this indeed possible? I have already removed the 3 'redundant' fans from the system, but this hasnt really affected the noise all that much. Can someone advise on the best course of action
