I have a HP DL385 G6 that is acting up. Weeks ago it stopped booting with an error of
Fan Solution Not Sufficient. The front panel indicating that fans 3 and 4 were down though both these fans are still in operation (and switching the fans does nothing).
Now weeks later it boots up saying fan 4 is not working, but 5 appears to be the minimum fan requirement and boots up. Then 2 hours hours go by and it's back to saying fans 3 and 4 are down (though they're not) and gives Fan Solution Not Sufficient. then shuts down.
The box details: DL385 G6, dual 6 core Opterons, 20 gigs of ram and 7 2.5" 15k SAS drives on a 410 raid controller.
I read in one post that there is a jump to change the required number of fans but it didn't say which one. I hope that if I can boot up I can resolve it with a firmware/bios update - otherwise if there is a way to repair the mother board side of the fan connections that is my next bet.
