PS. to my earlier post regarding intrusion alarm on my PE2800::
I do not see any way to turn off the intrusion alarm setting in my system bios settings as was suggested for another system. ANY suggestions appreciated!
I had similar issue, but it was the sensor on the chassis, where the cover is supposed to be that was up. All I did was to hold it down and after about 10seconds the light stopped blinking amber. That sensor is to indicate that the server is left open/unclosed. When it is not flashing amber, it is blue and stable.
we have amber blinking in the back of our PowerEdge servers and we know the reason for that. we recently removed hot-spare drive from our servers and seems like since then that amber light has been blinking. servers have been since then rebooted several time but light remains blinking. MegaCli doest report any degradation or failure or errors either. what is the best way to reset the light? help is appreciated.
