Ive had a pretty unique problem. I bought enough gear to build 3 servers for a client. Gear consists of:
Each server consists of:
1x P4308XXMEHN Chassis
1x Intel s2600CP2 Motherboard
2x Intel E5-2609 2.4GHz Processors
2x Intel BXSTS200C Thermal Solutions
2x Kingston 16Gb DDR3 1066MHz Memory Module
1x Intel RS2BL040 RAID Controller
For the life of me i cant get the server to boot. I have been on the phone with Intel support and they arnt very helpful. All they said was the server components are Intel verified. Ive tried all 3 combination of parts 3 sets of components and im getting the same problem.
Whats happening is the server turns on briefly for 2 seconds then goes off for 2 seconds. It continues cycle through this until turned off.
I tried clearing the CMOS and and when i plug the CMOS clear jumper back in the normal state the server boots like nothing has happened. I get amber lights all over the motherboard from memory sockets, cpu power connectors, fan connectors, processor 12v power and system fault lights.
Once the server is shut down and turned back on the server power cycles every 2 seconds again.
Your help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.
