I have IBM Xseries 3400 Intel Xenon server which only working while someone holding power button.
My server stop working and i send it to IBM Service, after few hours they said me to I can backup my data, when I asked how they manage to turn on it, they said that it works while power button is pressed.
After I asked which is way to repair my server they said that thy need to order full new motherboard for server.
Here is my questions.
- Is this common trouble whit IBM that only works while power is pressed ?
- Is there other way to repair this beside replacement with new motherboard ?
- May I use my server (with glued) power button while new motherboard came, (can I destroy my raid controller and raid field )
- Is there practice for how long I can use server in this way, (few hours, few days few months, few years ?), Boys at IBM said to me that after this problem server usually works few more months and then stop.)
1.5. Cloud they be wrong? should I try look solution inside something else, maybe change RAM, change power supplies, add non integrated Video Card, disconnect raid controller anything else )?
