Greetings,

My Proliant 3000 (Dual PII-300) is showing an error on the LCD display.

"Failure in Auxiliary Fan 5."

Looking at the parts list, I see 3 fan types for the Proliant 3000:

Front fan assembly (306576-001)
Fan assembly, rear (306577-001)
Fan assembly, rear redundant (326873-001)

Which one is Fan #5? The dying fan is quite loud and noticable but
inside a server room it's not possible to even distiguish if it's a
front or rear fan dying.

Thanks - Matt

Lacking the technical info on which fan is which, have you tried a
mechanics stethoscope to locate it by the noise it is making? I used a set
in a number of very noisy situations to locate problems by the noise they
make in a running engine. Not the best solution in your situation, but an
alternative pending one of the more technically knowledgeable members
posting a better answer.

Stick your finger in each fan one at a time causing fan to stop. when
you have a stopped fan and no noise, that is the bad fan #5

Fan #5 is the rear fan to the left of the cpu(s).

Hi David,

Do you know the stats of this fan? Is it a "regular" 92mm fan I can buy
at Radio Shack? I'm assuming not...

Thanks!

Probably. The cage is most likely the only thing that makes it 'special'.
You may have to use the existing connector, also.

Give it a try; can't be much worse than it is now...

Regards.

Dave
