We just got a new UCS c220 server, we were deploying Esxi on it and all of a sudden it started alarming a beep sound and it is continuous, there are no logs generated either CIMC nor the led indications, what might be the possible reason, an inputs would be helpful, thnx in advance
As Dan stated, it might be an issue with your RAID. In the past, I have experienced similar beeping when there was an issue with the RAID group. Except for the LSI controller, I'm not aware of any other componentt that would continuously beep on the server during operation
Curious. Was the software array controller enabled previously and a raid 5 built there? Did the megaraid controller see this array?
I ran into a case today with the above scenario. We updated to the latest firmware, we still had a 1 second on, 1 second off beep. All systems showed normal. Array showed optimal. Deleted and rebuild array and beep was gone.
You will want to protect anything on the array before deleteing the array.
