Two possibilities come to mind.

One, does the unit need to have at least one drive installed before it will POST correctly?
Two, if the unit has just been switched on then a temperature of 43°C seems rather high, suggesting a hardware or sensor fault somewhere.

Thanks for the reply the room temperature is definitely not over 100 because there are alot of other servers in the same room and they are not sending temperature alerts. I have tried this with 4 drives installed and it still gives the errors. I plan to try and replace the battery on the controllers and see if that is the issue. Other wise a sensor will probably be the issue or something else.  Ill see what happens with replacing the batteries and go from there.

I swapped controllers from another unit and this solved the problem.
