    Fan speed still high after firmware update on Server System P4308CP4MHEN


      The motherboard (a S2600CP4) is preinstalled in the system, so the cabling should be correct.

      When I first turned the system on. both fans ran at hight speed. After doing the firmware update, the top fan (Fan 2) is running correctly. But the lower fan, which I believe is fan 1, is still running very fast.


      I have updated the firmware using the EFI a second time.

      When updating the FRU, I see the following messages.

      The system detects the Intel Server Chassis P4000M Non Redundant Fan SKU is detected,

      8 x 3.5 Hot Swap Backplane 1 is deteced

      Do you want to update the chassis info area of the FRU? I choose "N"

      Do you wan to enter the chassis manufacturer name (Additional Field 1)? I choose "n"

      Do you want to update the system info area of the FRU? I choose "n"


      It does show FRUSDR update completed.

      When I go into the BIOS under System Information I see: BMC firmware revision 1.22.6890, ME Firmware rev., SDR rev. SDR Package 1.11.

      I have played around with the System Acoustic and Performance Configuration, but those changes did not make any difference.


      Any suggestions would be appreciated.
