HP MediaSmart Server - Checking the Server Lights

Checking the Server Lights
The lights on the front of the HP MediaSmart Server indicate the status of the server. After the HP MediaSmart Server startup completes and prior to the first software installation, the indicator lights show:
  • Power—breathing aqua white
  • Hard drive—breathing aqua white
  • Health—breathing aqua white
After you complete the software installation, all lights should be solid aqua white.
If the lights are not solid aqua white, see the following:
Power-On Indicator is Off
The server is not powered on.
To power on the server
  1. Make sure the power cord is fully plugged into the server and a powered electrical outlet.

      Turning on the Server
  2. If plugged into a surge protector or power strip, make sure the device is switched on.
Why is the Server's Health Indicator Light Red?
A red Health indicator light has the following states:
  • Solid red - operating system failure.
  • Blinking red - power on test has failed or BIOS failed.
Additionally, on your computers the Windows Home Server icon is grey on the task tray, which indicates the computer cannot contact Windows Home Server.
To get more information about the failure, the HP MediaSmart Server provides additional error codes.
To get the specific error code causing the failure
Use a paper clip to press and release the recessed Status/Recovery button on the front of the server.
