Powering down the system or removing AC power during the first system boot can corrupt the firmware on the hot swap backplane of Intel® Server Chassis P4304XXSHCN. Users must wait 3 minutes after pressing the power button for the first system boot to allow the backplane firmware update to complete.
When the failure occurs, the user can experience the following:
- Hot swap backplane Field Replaceable Unit (FRU) data is not accessible
- System Sensor Data Records (SDRs) not loading completely
- No response to IPMI commands from the hot swap backplane and Hard Disk Drive (HDD)
- Status Light Emitting Diodes (LEDs) malfunctioning
Intel does not anticipate any issues when customers use the Intel® Server Board S1200BTL with Intel® Server Chassis other than the Intel® Server Chassis P4304XXSHCN.
