We have in our school 12 DC-125’s attached to one Microsoft Multipoint 2011 Server running on a Dell R210 with an ATI Firepro 2270. This setup has been running for about 1.5 yrs.
The ATI Firepro 2270 failed in that heat had bent the heatsink on the graphics processor so much that it finally was lifting off the gpu. ATI has recognized this and have redesigned the heat sink for more surface area and better flow. That being said, I replaced the 2270 video card.
Then, when bringing everthing back up, one of the DC-125s had failed in that whenever it was plugged in, all main server processing power was being used by the bad DC-125. Is that how they fail? Anyway, I replaced the bad DC-125 and it now works as specified.
Question, have any idea why the DC-125 failed? Do you think the video card is related to the multifunction device failure? Do DC-125s normally fail like that in that they begin using all the server’s cpu power?
Thank you for your answer.
