Does HP offer racking solutions for my ProLiant DL360 G5 in Telco and Third Party Racks?
Yes, the DL360 G5 slide out rail system provides tool-free support for racks with square or round mounting holes (including HP/Compaq 10000, 9000. 7000 and HP series), with an adjustment range of 24-inch - 36-inch.
Two rack options are available to address the challenges of cable management for a 1U server. An optional ambidextrous cable management arm can be attached to the rack rail. Cables from the server are set inside the arm, significantly improving in rack servicing.
For out of rack servicing, optional PDU extension bars have been designed specifically for a 1U server. These PDU's have shortened power cords already attached to the PDU. This significantly reduces the cable bulk from power cords, especially when running redundant power in the server. To service the system, simply unplug the shortened power cables and remove the service from the rack.
Health and management
Can the internal or front external USB port on the DL360 G5 be used as a boot device or floppy replacement?
Utilities are now available that allow the use of USB instead of floppy for a number of tasks, including system boot from USB drive key. For additional information, view the HP Drive Key Boot Utility whitepaper.
How does USB compare to floppy?
USB 2.0 offers a fast interface for low speed peripheral devices - including storage devices. USB drive keys support large data capacities. Available capacities on USB disk keys can support anywhere from 16 to 300 times more capacity than a 1.44 MB floppy disk.
What are the system health LEDs used for? What do the different colors mean (green, red, amber)?
The front panel and internal LEDs are used to help diagnose a server failure. When an internal component fails, the indication is made on an internal component LED (amber) and on the front panel. If the item is serviceable without removing the server hood, as in the case of a redundant power supply failure, the External Health LED will illuminate. If the item is serviceable by removing the hood, as in the case of a fan failure, the Internal Health LED will illuminate.
If no failures have occurred, the system health LEDs will be green. If a failure has occurred, but a redundant feature has enabled the system to continue running, the LED will be amber. If the failure is critical and is/has caused the system to shutdown, the LED will be red. These LEDs serve as local indicators for several failure conditions. Insight Manager will continue to report these, and many other failure conditions, as well.
