Cisco UCS C210 M2 dont start

Hello Aleksandr,

Do you have one or two CPUs ?

Can you please try booting the server with CPU in socket 1 and one memory module ?

Do you have any other additional RAID controllers or PCI adapters installed on the server ?

Can you access the CIMC ?

I have 2 CPU costs.

If you delete one even though all memory modules situation does not change.

Raid controller is MegaRAID 9261-8i.

The keyboard does not respond so the BIOS can not go, and how to get in CIMC do not know, I am a server CiSCO first encounter.

advise disable unnecessary devices?

my server is a Cisco UCS C210 M2 Rack

(R210-BUN-1) Xeon X5650 / 2x4GB ® / no HDD /

MegaRAID 9261-8i / DVD-RW / PS 1x650W

Welcome to UCS.

Can you try booting up the server with single memory module for each CPU ( remove RAID controller and additional PCI cards ) ?

By default, CIMC ( management port ) is configured to get IP address via DHCP. Connect to LAN that has DHCP server or connect to laptop that runs DHCP server application.

Then, from the DHCP lease, find out the address taken by CIMC.

Now, you can access the CIMC via SSH or web browser.

For two days I was dancing with a tambourine around my server, and the reason was elementary - faulty memory, both trims. Thanks for the tips.

I have seen today the same issue. Just opening the chassis and reinstall all dimms solved the problem.
