LEDs

Power Failure LED

Flashes to indicate a power failure in the power supply.

Overheat/Fan Fail LED

Flashes to indicate a fan failure. Lights continuously to indicate an overheat condition.

An overheat condition can be caused by cables or other obstructions that constrict the airflow in the system or by the ambient room temperature being too warm. If this condition occurs, check the routing of the cables, make sure that all fans are installed and operating normally, make sure that the chassis covers are installed, and verify that the heat sinks are installed properly. For related information, see the "Checking Air Flow" section.

NIC 1 LED

Flashes to indicate network activity on network interface card (NIC) 1.

NIC 2 LED

Flashes to indicate network activity on network interface card (NIC) 2.

HDD LED

Lights to indicate hard disk drive activity.
