Going to give a try here and see if anyone in the USA might have a C1100 or CS24-TY main board sitting around that they want to sell???
I fired up my XCP-NG lab system today for the first time in months because I have some “prototype” work that would be easiest on a VM system, and one of my servers is dead. Power light comes on, error light comes on, iDrac won’t even blink now. In short the BIOS and/or BMC firmware is dead. There are a few on ebay, but thought I would ask here first.
Yes I will try the recovery, just need to find the info again. Pretty sure I already performed the steps and no luck, but worth due diligence to check it again.
Also, yes I did swap the power supply with a working unit, still the same behavior. Pulled all the ram and both processors. Tried each processor in socket 0, etc. Couldn’t even get a no memory beep out of it.
The last time it functioned I was getting some odd fan behavior from it, this is often a signal that the firmware is going to bail on you. Same version that I’m running on the other two servers, and the are not giving me problems.
