Hope you can help.
We have a HP DL150 G6 we've setup for a client as their DR server (their main server runs VM's and the idea is to have the VM's backed up to this DR server once a week).
All have been going well with the build and server fans were operating correctly.
Tried to install additional RAM, this then needs a second CPU, so got a 2nd CPU. Installed CPU this now requires additional fans before the server will go past POST stage.
Removed the 2nd CPU and RAM, booted and got "BMC Fan Curve Updating", server wouldn't boot as it was still looking for additional fans even though the 2nd CPU had been removed.
Reset the CMOS with jumper on MOBO. It now boots (Still comes up with BMC Fan Curve Updating") but at least boots to ESX. Problem is now the fans are on full blast 100% of the time.
I've done a lot of googling and everyone saying update the bios and ilO firmware but they are both running the latest versions. I reapplied the bios yesterday but this will made no difference.
Q - I see their is a BMC Recovery Jumper on the mobo, could this reset the fans back down to normal.
It's very frustrating as I've spent a number of days setting up this server and we nearly finished! The client will not put up with the fan noise the way it is.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
