locate fans in a RX2600

Post by joukj » Tue Nov 21, 2023 9:06 am

Hi

My Ilo tells me fan 2 is failing. I trito find the location of this fan in the maintenance manuals, but I could not find it, because the manuals point to the fans but do not give the numbers (0..7). So which fan is which?

HP Integrity rx2600 Server and HP zx6000 Workstation - Operations and Maintenance Guide (Document Part Number: 5991-5988 - Aug. 2007)

"rx2600 System Fans: there are four system fans that keep the server cool when it is running. The system fans are hot-swappable. This enables you to replace a fan while the server is running.

CAUTION: When the server is running, you must replace the top cover within four minutes to prevent components from overheating.

To remove a system fan, follow these steps

1. Remove the server covers.
2. Remove the fan.

a) Grasp the appropriate fan and lift it out of the fan socket to remove it:

◆ fan 1A, 1B, 2, or 3 from a rack-mounted server, or
◆ fan 3 from a pedestal-mount server"

The position of fan 2 is indicated by the red arrow.

Yeah I found that, but they are labeled 1A,1B,2 & 3 and not 0,1,2,3,4,5,6,7

Code: Select all

   I have a pair of rx2600 systems, but no useful (relevant)
information.  If I were desperate, I might try jamming one fan at a time
(creating a new fan problem at a known location), and looking for
interesting patterns in the resulting iLO messages.

I think I will replace all 4 double fans tomorrow and find out later which one is broken.

For the numbering there are 2 options:

option 1:
ilo -> machine
0 -> 1A
1 -> 1B
2 -> 2
3 -> 3
4 -> fan of Power supply
5 -> fan of Power supply
6,7 -> ????

option 2
ilo -> machine
0,1 -1A
2,3 -> 1B
4,5 -> 2
6,7 -> 3

No idea what is right.

I replace all 4 fans, but I still get the fan2 failure in the ILO.

Machiner is running OpenVMS fine by the way.
