Hi , simple question: we have 7 M5000 in the racks and standing between them we have to say they are producing a lot of very noisy sounds.
Is this only from the running fans and disks ? Or should we call the service to check. I have to they since we have them they had this sound , so no changes at all.
If you have MOS credentials to log a SR, then do that. You will then get some peace of mind.
You could also go to the system's documentation and review the specifications with regards to normal sound levels.
The informati9on might be there, somewhere.
Lastly, with MOS credentials, you can examine the System Handbook site for that platform and see if they've included a general specifications page that describes the expected sound level output for the design (then go buy a sound level meter to actually take readings of what your system is producing).
Link to that System Handbook (available only with a CSI login):
I have an account for MOS and already reading the system hand book, but there is nothing mentioned so far about the sound pressure. I saw in a data sheet there i smentioned 60db, which is less then we have I think. I will open a SR to get a clarification, thanks
I have face with this problem before. If one of your Power supplies fails, than Fans start working more speedy. Could you please check your PS ?
Another reason is that you need to setup altitude of system from XSCF. Calculate the altitude with smartphone (there are apps for this) than apply it to xscf. (set altitude or similar command exist)
I hope it helps.
