System LEDs and Internal Health LED Combinations

When the internal health LED on the front panel illuminates either amber or red, the server is experiencing a health event. Combinations of illuminated system LEDs and the internal health LED indicate system status.

The front panel health LEDs indicate only the current hardware status. In some situations, HP SIM may report server status differently than the health LEDs because the software tracks more system attributes.

System LED and Color
Internal Health LED Color
Status
Processor failure, socket X (Amber)
Red
One or more of the following conditions may exist:
  • Processor in socket X has failed.

  • Processor in socket X failed over to the offline spare.

  • Processor X is not installed in the socket.

  • Processor X is unsupported.

  • ROM detects a failed processor during POST.

Amber
Processor in socket X is in a pre-failure condition.
Processor failure, both sockets (Amber)
Red
Processor types are mismatched.
PPM failure (Amber)
Red
PPM has failed.
DIMM failure, slot X (Amber)
Red
  • DIMM in slot X has failed.

  • DIMM in slot X is an unsupported type, and no valid memory exists in another bank.

Amber
  • DIMM in slot X has reached single-bit correctable error threshold.

  • DIMM in slot X is in a pre-failure condition.

  • DIMM in slot X is an unsupported type, but valid memory exists in another bank.

DIMM failure, all slots in one bank (Amber)
Red
No valid or usable memory is installed in the system.
Overtemperature (Amber)
Amber
The Health Driver has detected a cautionary temperature level.
Red
The server has detected a hardware critical temperature level.
Riser interlock (Amber)
Red
The PCI riser board assembly is not seated.
Online spare memory (Amber)
Amber
Bank X failed over to the online spare memory bank.
Power converter module interlock (Amber)
Red
The power converter module is not seated.
Fan module (Amber)
Amber
A redundant fan has failed.
Fan module (Red)

On, off, or flashing
On
Off
The drive is online and is configured as part of an array.
If the array is configured for fault tolerance and all other drives in the array are online, and a predictive failure alert is received or a drive capacity upgrade is in progress, the drive may be replaced online.
On or flashing
Flashing
Off
Do not remove the drive. Removing a drive may terminate the current operation and cause data loss.
The drive is rebuilding or undergoing capacity expansion.
On
Off
Off
Do not remove the drive.
The drive is being accessed, but (1) it is not configured as part of an array; (2) it is a replacement drive and rebuild has not yet started; or (3) it is spinning up during the POST sequence.
Flashing
Flashing
Flashing
Do not remove the drive. Removing a drive may cause data loss in non-fault-tolerant configurations.
Either (1) the drive is part of an array being selected by an array configuration utility; (2) Drive Identification has been selected in HP SIM; or (3) drive firmware is being updated.
Off
Off
On
The drive has failed and has been placed offline.
The drive may be replaced
Off
Off
Off
Either (1) the drive is not configured as part of an array; (2) the drive is configured as part of an array, but it is a replacement drive that is not being accessed or being rebuilt yet; or (3) the drive is configured as an online spare.
