Callout
Indicator/LED: Color
State Meaning
1
Locate button/LED: white
  • Off – Normal operation.

  • Fast blink – This LED blinks to help locate the system. Operators can turn this indicator on and off remotely using Oracle ILOM.

  • Pressing this button toggles the fast blink on or off. It is also used to prove physical presence.

  • Indicator Test Mode – Push and hold the Locate button for 5 seconds to activate the push to test feature, which causes all LEDs except disk activity and power supply LEDs to light for 15 seconds.

2
SP OK/Fault: bi-color
  • Off – No power is supplied to the SP or it is not functional.

  • Amber – When lit indicates an SP fault.

  • Green – When steady on indicates that Oracle ILOM is fully functional. If blinking, POST diagnostics are running, Oracle ILOM is booting, or firmware is updating.

Note ‐  The amber LED indicates the status of the watchdog timer. The watchdog timer runs continuously, but it times out if it is not reset by Oracle ILOM. If it times out, the amber LED is lit and the green LED is extinguished.

3
Ready to Remove: blue
  • Off – Normal operation.

  • Fast Blink – The system is preparing a customer-replaceable unit (CRU) (disk drive, fan module, or power supply) for safe removal but it is not ready yet.

  • Steady on – The CRU can be safely removed.

4
Service Required: amber
  • Off – Normal operation.

  • Steady on – A fault is present in system or a subsystem within the chassis.

5
Power/OK: green
This LED indicates the operational state of the chassis. This LED can be in the following states:
  • Off – AC power is not present or the Oracle ILOM boot has not completed.

  • Standby blink – Standby power is on and Oracle ILOM can be accessed, but full chassis power is off. The LED blinks at a 10 percent duty cycle (0.1 second on, 2.9 seconds off), that is, the light is on for a very short period of time.

  • Slow blink – The startup sequence has been initiated on the host. The LED blinks at a 50 percent duty cycle, which is noticeably longer than the STANDBY BLINK. This pattern should begin immediately following powering on the system. This status indicates either 1) power-on self-test (POST) diagnostics running on system host or 2) the host is transitioning from the powered-on state to the standby state on shutdown.

  • Steady on – The system is powered on and all host POST tests passed. The system is one of the following states: 1) the system host is ready to boot, or 2) the system host is booting the operating system (OS), or 3) the system host is running the OS.

6
Over temperature: amber
  • Off – Normal operation.

  • Steady on – The system is experiencing an over-temperature warning condition.

Note ‐  This is a warning indication, not a fatal over temperature. Failure to correct this can result in the system over heating and shutting down.

7
Rear Component Failure: amber
  • Off – Normal operation.

  • Steady on – The system has detected a power supply fault, a fan fault, or a rear 2.5-inch disk drive fault.

This fault condition is associated with chassis components located in the rear of the chassis. This fault might be caused by:
  • Power supply failure (AC fault, 12V/3.3Vaux fault, or power supply fan fault)

  • Rear fan failure

  • Rear 2.5-inch disk failure

Server Node Fan Indicators

Each fan module for Oracle Database Appliance (original version) has a single bi-colored LED indicating both fan OK and fan fault conditions. The LED lights green to indicate that the fan module is properly plugged into the system and operating within the expected RPM range for a given power management setting. The LED lights amber to indicate a fan fault.


Note ‐  The LEDs on the fan modules are not lit amber on initial system power-on. The fan amber LED only lights if Oracle ILOM detects a failure that indicates a faulty fan module or a missing fan that should be installed.

Indicator/LED: Color
State Meaning
OK: green
  • Steady on – The fan is functioning normally.

  • Off – Chassis 3.3V_Standby power is off or there is a fan fault.

Service Required: amber
  • Off – Normal operation.

  • Steady on – A fault has been detected with the fan.

Note ‐  The front and rear panel Service Required LEDs are also lit if the system detects a fan module fault.

Storage and Boot Drive Status Indicators

Each storage drive for Oracle Database Appliance (original version) includes three LEDs. They are the same on the front storage drives and the rear-mounted boot drives. See the following table.

This LED indicates the operational state of the chassis. This LED can be in the following states:
  • Off – AC power is not present or the Oracle ILOM boot has not completed.

  • Standby blink – Standby power is on and Oracle ILOM can be accessed, but full chassis power is off. The LED blinks at a 10 percent duty cycle (0.1 second on, 2.9 seconds off), that is, the light is on for a very short period of time.

  • Slow blink – The startup sequence has been initiated on the host. The LED blinks at a 50 percent duty cycle, which is noticeably longer than the STANDBY BLINK. This pattern should begin immediately following powering on the system. This status indicates either 1) power-on self-test (POST) diagnostics running on system host or 2) the host is transitioning from the powered-on state to the standby state on shutdown.

  • Steady on – The system is powered on and all host POST tests passed. The system is one of the following states: 1) the system host is ready to boot, or 2) the system host is booting the operating system (OS), or 3) the system host is running the OS.

Server Node Internal LEDs

The following section describes the internal LEDs for Oracle Database Appliance (original version). Each server node contains the following internal LEDs:


Note ‐ A super capacitor (located on the motherboard) provides power to light the server node fault LEDs for up to 15 minutes after the server node is removed from a powered-on system chassis. After approximately 15 minutes, the capacitor discharges enough so that it cannot light the fault LEDs.

Ethernet Port Indicators

Each server node in Oracle Database Appliance (original version) has two host Ethernet ports (NET0 and NET1) and an SP network management port (NET MGT). Each of these has two LEDs that indicate link activity and port speed.
