System Reset

The Xserve has a system reset switch on the logic board that may be used to restart the Xserve while it is powered up. This switch can be used to determine if a Xserve that won't consistently boot from a cold start has power supply issues. Follow these steps to reset the system:

With the Xserve powered up, press the SYS_RST switch located on the logic board to the rear of the FB-DIMM slots.

If the Xserve boots after you press the SYS_RST switch, try shutting the Xserve off and restarting by pressing the front panel power button. If the Xserve restarts when you press the SYS_RST switch but not from a cold start, the power supply may need to be replaced.
