HP BladeSystem C7000 Enclosure & BL460c Gen8

HP BladeSystem C7000
15 x BL460c Gen8 Blade Servers

I have 15 blade servers and the first 5 are showing a "Server Degrade" orange flashing light.

How do I find out what the issue is?

Use the onboard administrator to connect to the iLOs of the individual blades and look at the insight management logs. There's lots more to check apart from the IMLs but you still have to use OA and iLO to see what the problem is. Is this a new installation? Do you have enough PSUs for that many blades? Are there any mezzanine cards fitted and are there I/O modules in the corresponding slots? Does the enclosure have OA firmware late enough to cope with Gen8 blades? Is EBIPA setup to give the iLOs IP addresses? Just a few pointers, I would have to see screenshots from OA to diagnose further.
