Yeah, I've gone through the three options (None, Default, User-Defined)
and they don't change anything. Ctrl-E doesn't have any related options.
The 1950 next to it in the rack (they should be the same hw config) is
showing a PSU Redundancy failure with one PSU unplugged, so this server
should do the same.
Any other ideas? I see a little reset(?) switch that looks like it needs
a paper clip to use - is that a real system reset or does it do the LCD
by any chance?
