Solving shared BladeCenter resource problems

Use this information to diagnose and resolve shared BladeCenter® resource issues.

Problems with BladeCenter shared resources might appear to be in the blade server. The following sections provide procedures to help you isolate blade server problems from shared BladeCenter resource problems. If the problem is thought to be with a shared resource, see the BladeCenter component documentation for additional information. If the problem cannot be solved, see Solving undetermined problems.

To check the general function of shared BladeCenter resources, complete the following tasks:

  • Make sure that:
    • The BladeCenter unit has the required power modules and is connected to a working power source.
    • Power management has been correctly set for your BladeCenter unit configuration.
  • Determine whether the problem is being experienced with more than one blade server. Perform a test of the function on a known-good blade server.
  • Try the blade server in a different blade server bay.
  • Try a known-good blade server in the blade server bay.
