HP DL360 gen8 fans dying



  • Hi guys,

    we have been having major problems over the past year with our HP DL360 gen8 server fans.

    The server is in a clean, cool environment.

    If I take the fan out and spin it up with compressed air and reinstall it, it runs again for a short period of time. I thought maybe it could be a problem with iLo, but I checked and the fan in question has always stopped.

    Here are the fan cautions from the iLo log:

    Anyone else had this?



  • It appears the entire lower half of your fan count is having issues, so possibly a power supply issue.



  • Maybe you got a bad batch.
