Flashing power LED on IBM HS21 blade
Posted on 2010-01-05
The UPS connected to my IBM blade chassis fritzed a little yesterday (I think the battery is getting old) and the Bladecenter terminal logged a hardware failure (power source non-redundant on domain 2) which caused the HS21 blades in bays 7 and 8 to restart. The blade in bay 8 came back up fine, but the one in bay 7 is powered down and has a flashing green power LED. It won't process commands (shut down, restart, allow manual shutdown) from the web terminal, and won't restart if I try to turn it off manually. I'm sure the firmware on the HS21 is way out of date and we recently updated the Bladecenter firmware. Is there any way to get this sucker back up before I call IBM?
