Front Panel LEDs

LED or Button
Locator LED and button


The Locator LED enables you to find a particular system. The LED is activated using one of the following methods:
  • The ALOM CMT command setlocator on.

  • The Oracle ILOM command set /SYS/LOCATE value=Fast_Blink

  • Manually press the Locator button to toggle the Locator LED on or off.

This LED provides the following indications:

  • Off – Normal operating state.

  • Fast blink – System received a signal as a result of one of the methods previously mentioned, indicating that it is active.

Service Required LED


If on, indicates that service is required. POST and Oracle ILOM are two diagnostics tools that can detect a fault or failure resulting in this indication.

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 lit in addition to the system Service Required LED.

Power OK LED


Provides the following indications:
  • Off – Indicates that the system is not running in its normal state. System power might be off. The service processor might be running.

  • Steady on – Indicates that the system is powered on and is running in its normal operating state. No service actions are required.

  • Fast blink – Indicates the system is running at a minimum level in standby and is ready to be quickly returned to full function. The service processor is running.

  • Slow blink – Indicates that a normal transitory activity is taking place. Slow blinking could indicate that the system diagnostics are running, or that the system is booting.

Power button
The recessed Power button toggles the system on or off.
  • If the system is powered off, press once to power on.

  • If the system is powered on, press once to initiate a graceful system shutdown.

  • If the system is powered on, press and hold for 4 seconds to initiate an emergency shutdown.

For more information about powering on and powering off the system, see the Sun SPARC Enterprise T5440 Server Administration Guide.

Fan Fault LED




Provides the following operational fan indications:
  • Off – Indicates a steady state, no service action is required.

  • Steady on – Indicates that a fan failure event has been acknowledged and a service action is required on at least one of the fan modules.

Power Supply Fault LED




Provides the following operational PSU indications:
  • Off – Indicates a steady state, no service action is required.

  • Steady on – Indicates that a power supply failure event has been acknowledged and a service action is required on at least one PSU.

Overtemp LED


Provides the following operational temperature indications:
  • Off – Indicates a steady state, no service action is required.

  • Steady on – Indicates that a temperature failure event has been acknowledged and a service action is required.
