We recently moved to a new building and we moved the HP server and the web console..
nOw the web console will not even start
or power up..
any thoughts or docs I can look at?
Solved! Go to Solution.

I feel I'm stating the obvious but...
Are you certain the power source is okay?
I don't remember: does the power cord detach from the transformer? If so, is it plugged in well?
If you are certain you have power and the web console won't power up, the only thing left to do is to place a hardware call.
Perhaps you could hook up a dumb terminal as the console in the meantime.

If it won't power-up, I suppose you can read docs all you like, but it sounds like it bit the dust. I hope the disk drives in the server faired better during the move.
Sorry for the bad news. Hopefully it's under HP contract.

its pretty weird...
I plug in the power cord into the outlet..and the unit displays a solid amber light for a few seconds...and then nothing..
I plug in the cat 5 cable..and the unit also flashes...

but i didnt figure that succh a small and compact unit would be so fragile...geessh...
the server fared well..thank god...it was our DNS server..:)

The amber light comes on.
There seems to be a network config issue.
No green light after the amber.
Has you subnet/IP changed?
Is the LAN cable OK?
This could as simple as the LAN cable didn't survive.
The SWC seems to have survived as it passes the self test.
How does it go?

The new switch port is configured for 10 Half Duplex, not set to 100 Full?
Just a few thoughts.

Like Darrell said, it probably got reset back to the factory defaults - like an IP of 188.8.131.52.
Follow the link Darrell provided.

If the address is OK, then since you moved to a new building, did the subnet address change? Did you have to change the IP addresses on other machines? NOTE: the Web Console is 10Mbit half duplex and if connected to an auto-negotiate switch, it will handle the negotiation correctly.
