Having problems with your IBM xSeries 226 Server ?

Problem with power suply

\015 Removed one bad power suply, but the second one still shuts down the server after 1 minute. Is it also bad or what? or is it some kind of protection...? I also tried reseting the bios...all disks removed...managed to see the temp of cpu -> 61degres I believe its ok?\015

Answers :

CPU temp is OK
\015\012Look inside when it is running and make sure all fans are spinning.
\015\012If server is connected to a UPS / battery disconnect it and plug it directly in the outlet.
\015\012Try another wall outlet.
\015\012Disconnect any unecessary internal or external components.
\015\012Remove RAM and test with one module at a time.
\015\012You could have some burnt capacitors on the motherboard.
\015\012Examine them and make sure that their tops aren't cracked or bulging.
\015\012You could have 2 bad power supplies or insufficient wattage.
\015\012eBay should have parts if you need them.
\015\012
\015\012Sorry if this is obvious but I have to say that that server is very old and this may only be the start of your problems. Make sure your backups are solid and try to replace it soon.
