Diagnostics LEDs

The server module has LEDs on the front panel and on the hard drives. The LEDs conform to ANSI SIS. For the locations of these LEDs, see Front and Rear Panel Components.

The table identifies the server module LEDs, and explains how to interpret their behavior.

LED or Button
Icon or Label
Locator LED and button
image:Icon for the Locator Button LED
You can turn on the Locator LED to identify a particular server module. When on, the LED blinks rapidly. There are two methods for turning a Locator LED on:
  • Running the Oracle ILOM command set /SYS/LOCATE value=Fast_Blink.

  • Pressing the Locator button.

The Locator LED functions as the physical presence switch.

Ready to Remove LED
image:Icon for the ready-to-remove LED and button.
Steady state - If LED is off, it is not safe to remove the server module from the modular system chassis. You must use Oracle ILOM to shut down the server module and put the blade into ready to remove state before this LED is on.
Service Action Required LED
image:Icon for the Service Action Required LED
Indicates that service is required. POST and Oracle ILOM are two diagnostics tools that can detect a fault or failure resulting in this indication. Also, faults detected by Oracle Solaris PSH can result in Oracle ILOM lighting this LED.

The Oracle ILOM show faulty command provides details about any faults that cause this indicator to light.

Under some fault conditions, individual component fault LEDs are turned on in addition to the Service Action Required LED.

Power OK LED
image:Icon for the Ok LED
Indicates the following conditions:
  • Off – System is not running in its normal state. System power might be off. The SP might be running.

  • Steady on – System is powered on and is running in its normal operating state. No service actions are required.

  • Fast blink – System is running in Standby mode and can be quickly returned to full function.

  • Slow blink – A normal, but transitory activity is taking place. Slow blinking might indicate that system diagnostics are running, or the system is booting.

On/Standby button
image:Icon for the Power Button
The recessed Power button toggles the system on or off.
  • Press once to turn the system on.

  • Press once to shut the system down to a standby state.

  • Press and hold for 4 seconds to perform an emergency shutdown.

HDD Ready to Remove LED
image:Icon for the Ready to Remove LED
Indicates that a hard drive can be removed during a hot-plug operation.
HDD Service Action Required LED
image:Icon for the Service Action Required LED
Indicates that the hard drive has experienced a fault condition.
HDD OK/Activity LED

image:Icon for the Ok LED
On HDDs, indicates the following drive status:
  • On – Drive is idle and available for use.

  • Off – Read or write activity is in progress.
