removed various hardware and did troubleshooting such as jumping CMOS but no dice. HP recommends we contact our VAR as this was purchased within the last 30 days. i wasn't involved in this purchase but i can help send the items back. michal` is this something you or corey can handle or do you want me to sync up with Terminal(i assume)?

Okay. Since its been within 30 days of purchase, you could contact the point of purchase as the server is dead on arrival Van.

back and forth between our vendor and HP as the host is brand new. they wanted me to contact the vendor a another time if i wanted the whole system replaced. per rich this would be a much longer process so i opted to have an engineer come on site to replace the system board. will update when the engineer contacts me. let me know if you have any issues or concerns regarding this process.



Agree I don’t want you wasting time and going back on forth on this and I apologize for the  issues.  If we are to replace the unit we need it officially declared DOA by HP which I do not think they will do.


Can you follow these procedures  (don’t mention to them the previous case or interaction with HP)



As per HP:


Instructions for calling 1-800-633-3600 for DOA issues:


1) Call 1-800-633-3600

2) Caller will be asked to speak the model number (i.e. Proliant DL 380 server)

3) Caller will be asked what Operating system they are using (i.e. Microsoft, Linux, etc.)

4) Caller will be asked to have serial number ready and will be transferred to a technical contact

6) The Technician will talk the caller through some basic diagnostics and either resolve the issue or declare the unit DOA.

• Resolving the issue could include on line diagnostics, dispatching on site service and, if needed, sending replacement parts

• Declaring the unit DOA means that the entire unit requires replacement.

7) Tech will assign a WFM case and provide it to the customer . The case will then be placed in DOA queue (if the entire unit needs to be replaced, the case manager will file the DEFOA request )

8) Case manager will “own” and provide all status updates to the customer through closure


This will resolve the issue and either have a tech dispatched to repair or give us an authorized DOA Case #


Again my apologies for the issues
