How to tell which Dell PowerEdge SC1425 Fan Failed?
Posted on 2010-09-09
I had a Dell PowerEdge SC1425 Fan Failure about a year ago. Looks like I've got another one about to go out on me because I have the same symptoms: amber system status light blinking, NO other indicator lights blinking and the fan(s) are revving at max RPMs. Subsequent system diagnostic tests report no errors.
I had a Dell technician solve me problem last year. He looked at a log somewhere that told him which of the two cooling fan modules to replace. Could someone please tell me where to look for the fan failure message and how to tell which fan module to replace?
