20 Most Recent Dell PowerEdge 1800 Server Questions & Answers


I would start with reseating the RAM and disconnecting and reconnecting motherboard and system connections as there is a chance that something got rattled in shipping.
Where was it before it was in Panama? Maybe the power system is different and you might need a different power supply?

Install another cd unit that is recognized by bios so you can install the software. Without that you can do nada!

If another known good player is used and it also is not recognized then you have an issue with your CMOS - not a good thing!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The first thing I would check would be the power supply.

Dell PowerEdge... | Answered on Jun 14, 2015


Is there a power-cord connecting from an electrical outlet to some socket on the computer? If so, then the "female" end of the power-cord connects to the external "socket" of the power-supply.
Open the computer, and trace the "inside" of that "socket", where it connects to the power-supply.

Assuming this is still an issue...old as it is...

You need to boot the server and press the correct prompt to enter the BIOS of your PERC RAID controller. There you need to manage your physical/logical volumes.

Chances are that either you had a drive failure or the metadata on your RAID volume (JBOD?) was corrupted. This is a common issue with these LSI-based PERC[5-6]i RAID controllers that Dell utilized.

should be connected to the RAID Card

I think you do not boot to this file, you must do the restore first and then boot to drive.

http://www.dell.com/support/troubleshooting/us/en/19/KCS/KcsArticles/Print?he Embedded System Management (ESM) log - also called System Event Log (SEL) or hardware log - reports potential hardware problems in Dell PowerEdge servers. Sometimes, simply turning off the server and disconnecting it from the electrical outlet will remove the error message. Wait approximately 10 seconds, and then reconnect the power cable and restart the server.

Other times, you will need to clear the ESM log to remove the error message. For instance, error code SEL FULLindicates that you will need to clear the ESM log. (You will lose the server's event history.) There are different ways to clear the ESM log.

To use DSET to Clear the ESM Log
  1. Download and open the DSET utility.
  2. Click the plus (+) next to System, and then click the plus (+) next to Logs.
  3. Click ESM to highlight it.
  4. Click Clear ESM Log located in the upper-right corner of the page.
To use OpenManage Server Administrator (OMSA) to clear the ESM log
  1. Start OpenManage Server Administrator (OMSA).
  2. Log in to OMSA by entering your username and password, and then press Enter.
  3. Click the Logs tab, and then click Hardware.
  4. Click Clear Log located next to Options.
To use Dell IT Assistant to clear the ESM log
  1. Start IT Assistant.
  2. From the middle System Tree bar, select your server by clicking it.
  3. Click the Logs tab, and then click Clear Log in the upper-right corner of the page.
Find your Dell PowerEdge server model in the chart below for other ways to clear the ESM log:

Use the Log2Txt.exe utility to clear the ESM log:

  2. When you see the ESM Log main menu appear, press 2 on your keyboard to select Clear ESM log.
  3. When the ESM Log main menu reappears, press 5on your keyboard to exit the utility.

Use the DRAC or ERA to clear the ESM log:

  2. Log in to the RAC.
  3. Click the Logs tab, and then click Hardware.
  4. Click Clear Logs located in the upper-right corner of the page.
1850, 2800, 2850, 6800, 6850
Use the program BMCCFG.exe to clear the ESM logs:
  1. Download and extract the Dell OpenManage Deployment Toolkit here.
  2. Go to x:\Dell\Toolkit\Tools, where x is your primary hard disk drive.
  3. Copy the file BMCCFG.exe to a bootable floppy disk.
  4. Start the server from the bootable floppy disk.
  5. At the command prompt, type bmcc - clearsel, and then press Enter.
    The message "Clearing SEL" will display while the log clears.
1950, 2900, 2950, DP500, DP600, NF500, NF600
Use the BMC/BIOS to clear the ESM log:
  1. To open the BMC menu, press the Control + Ekeys during POST.

Great thanks,

That's just a system indicator flash. Solid blue means on and normal, blinking means someone either turned on the system indicator in the management software or bumped the indicator switch on the back of the server. This was designed to make easier transitions from back to front when working with multiple servers in a rack. To turn the indicator off, just go to the back of the server and find the Ethernet and usb ports that are together. If the usb is the bottom and Ethernet port is the top then just to the right you should see a small blue blinking light and a button, pushing the button wil turn the blinking off.

Again, no worries this is just a "locator beacon" not an error message, if the light ever blinks yellow then you have an issue.

Hope this helps FixYa,

Chris
