HP Proliant DL585 G6 red light and beep
Posted on 2010-11-22
I'm having a strange issue with an HP Proliant DL585 G6, was just purchased a month ago.
I shutdown the OS, and then safely moved its location (Rack mounted on a movable HP cage). The Hardware was hooked up to the UPS, so power was still running to it, but it was off otherwise. Everything else worked fine when UPS was plugged back in 5 minutes later (did not run out of power) and then powered back up, except that specific server.
Now, it beeps over and over, and the light beside the "UID" light is red. The power supplies on the server seem just fine, I've tested both by trying to power up the server using any single one of them. Same issue while attempting to use just a single power supply, with the addition of an orange light to the right of the red one. The light that is red has a similar "power" or "flash" symbol on it as the one beside it, but is inside a squarish box.
I'm trying to figure out what could be wrong with it. It won't boot up to show anything on the screen. It powers up, the fans go on full blast, then it stops and starts beeping with the red light.
