Pinned topic BCH unsupported blade/blower

‏2014-03-17T06:28:29Z |

My current bladecenter H (8852) setup is combination of HS21,HS22 and HS23.

-2 HS21

-4 HS22

-3 HS23

We bought 3 more HS23 (all the processor with 95watt)

When we install the new blade server and power up, there's amber light. The error shows 0x80070200 saying unsupported blade / blower

I check the cooling module as below:

Description: Chassis cooling dev

Part number: 25R9896

FRU number: 31R3301

FRU serial number: YK10CD

Hardware revision: 4

manufacturer: 4206

The AMM firmware has already been flashed to the latest firmware

I checked futher, and found that for HS23 processor with 95watt and above need enhance blower.

I checked my current blower FRU number 31R3301, I'm not sure that my blower is a standard blower or enhance blower.

Does the error I'm facing is really the blower compatibility issue?

    I'm assuming you have redundant power supplies and power feeds to support more than 6 blades?  If you have sufficient power for more than 6 blades than yes, you will need to look at upgrading the blowers.

    Yes. I have power module on bay1 to bay 4. I'm not sure the current blower is standard or enhance blower.

    Can you attach screenshots of the current power summary and the FRU of the blowers?

    The bladecenter H model is 8852-4XA.

    I checked that this model not able to installed with enhanced blower. Does that means my only option is to change the processor of the 3 new HS23 blade servers to the processor with 80 watt?

    I don't think that will work.  I'd ask IBM support about your options.

    http://support.excels.com/public/IBM/IBM%20BladeCenter/IBM%20BladeCenter%20Products%20and%20Technology.pdf

    this link here on page 89 says only bladecenter H 8852-4SX and 4TX able to support enhance blower, other bladecenter H not able to support it.

    The enhance blower has been purchase and install to the chassis, I power up the HS23 servers and still shows error. All the HS23 shows error. In the AMM event log, the error still says 0x80070200 saying unsupported blade / blower.

    I've redundant power module of 2900 Watt PSU.

    I read the redbook of HS23 of processor with 95watt and currently my chassis fufill all the requirement. What else when wrong?

    Hi sweehan.

    Burak,

    My problem solved by changing the blower to enhance blower. The reason of why the previous enhance blower installed but still giving errors is because the blower came with enhance blower box but inside the blower itself is a normal blower when i check the blower serial number.

    I asked the supplier to changed it for me. Waited for a month for the correct blower to arrive. After install to the blade chassis, the error was solved.
