5340 compute node control panel
A control panel is located on the right front side of the compute node.
The following table describes the components of the control panel.
Power button with integrated LED
The System Status LED uses the colors green and amber to display the health of the compute node.
Hard drive Activity LED
The drive activity LED on the front panel indicates drive activity from the on-board hard disk controllers.
System ID button with integrated LED
The System ID button toggles on and off the integrated ID LED and the blue server board LED. The system ID LED identifies the system for maintenance when it is racked with similar server systems.
System Cold Reset Button (recessed, tool required)
When you depress the System Cold Reset button it restarts and re-initializes the appliance. Veritas recommends that you do not use this button.
NIC-4 Activity LED
NIC-3 Activity LED
NIC-1 Activity LED
NIC-2 Activity LED
The NIC LEDs represent a network interface controller. When network links are detected on the controllers, the LEDs are activated and remain on. The LEDs blink when network activity occurs. The amount of network activity determines the rate of blinking.
NMI button (recessed, a tool is required for use)
When the non-maskable interrupt (NMI) button is depressed the appliance goes into a halt state. This feature is useful when you perform diagnostics for a given issue where a memory dump is necessary to help determine the cause of the problem. To prevent an inadvertent system halt, the NMI button is located behind the front control panel faceplate.
System Status LED
The System Status LED is a bi-color indicator that uses the colors green and amber to display the current health of the compute node.
Two locations are provided for you to monitor the health of the system. You can find the first location on the front control panel. The second location is on the back edge of the server board on the rear of the compute node. Both LEDs show the same state of health.
