Normal Boot Process

  • Once power is applied to Core 610, it will take about 1-2 minutes for the iDRAC to initialize.
  • There will be no power LED or sound at this time. Only the LED display on the front panel will show “Initializing”. Be patient.MicrosoftTeams-image (3).png
  • After the iDRAC is fully initialized, the Core will proceed to BIOS boot.
  • Power, NIC, and Status LEDs will now be lit.
  • Fans will run at maximum speed at this point. This process will take approximately 2 minutes.
  • When boot-up is complete, the Core will be discoverable in QDS 9.6+.
