  1. rp3440 front panel flashing red, even after reviewing system logs?

    I've got an HP rp3440 server whose front panel light is flashing red
    ever since it crashed and rebooted itself several months ago. We had HP
    service in and they could find nothing wrong. They shrugged their
    shoulders and said, "Dunno. Sometimes they do that. No sense in losing
    sleep over it."

    They also said, "Just review the system logs and the red light will go
    away." Well, I've reviewed the system logs in the Management Processor
    dozens of times. The light is still flashing red. So, I review
    EVERYTHING in the system logs menu, even clear out the logs. It's still
    flashing red.

    How do you make the red flashing light go away? The system has been up
    and stable ever since it randomly crashed.

    cut the wires leading to the flashing red led.

    I think just about every crash and burn machine in our machine rooms is
    flashing either a red or yellow led. I think what it really means is
    that the machine has power and is running.
