I've a N36L Proliant Microserver that has been happily sitting on a shelf doing NAS type stuff since 2011. I was away last week, and came back to it dead. It now won't switch on at all. No lights, no flickers of LEDs when power on switch pressed, nothing - so no real diagnostics! Checked fuse, checked mains power, all OK.
I'm presuming its a blown PSU - is that a good guess?
And, given the age of the machine, I'm suspecting it is likely to be best to simply replace it with a Gen8 replacement rather than faffing around trying to replace a PSU (which may or may not be the cause of the failure). Or is it worth trying to salvage?
(I'm hoping the disks in the machine survived the failure - there's a 6TB WD Green, a 2TB WD Green, a 250GB Seagate and a 750GB Samsung in there at the moment. Running XUbunutu.)
Does anyone find there WP8 device is powered down (off) when they left in on for several hours (overnight)? My 4-day old Samsung Ativ S turn itself off overnight, while it was left off the charger.
* I have read that multiple Windows Phone 8 devices from various manufactures and carries can experience this issue.
The MicroServer Owners Club on the OverClockers Australia Forum member Doodz has a comprehensive write-up on the power useage of the MicroServer.
In my own configuration of the MicroServer with:
8 GB RAM
Crucial M4 128GB SSD
WD20FAEX 2TB Black Drive
WD20EADS 2TB Green Drive
WD30EZRX 3TB Green Drive
ST3000DM001 Barracuda 3TB Drive
Intel EXP19402PTBLK 2-port NIC
I found that the MicroServer had a start-up peak of about 101VA (Volt-Amps) ran idled at about 61VA.
In the above configuration I still had one slot open in my 4-bay for another 3.5” spindle drive so in the interest of science I re-installed the original Seagate 250GB drive:
ST325318AS Barracuda 250GB Drive
In this “filled” configuration I found that the MicroServer had a start-up peak of about 111VA and ran idled at about 66VA.
