If two spare PSUs and your original ones all are dead it sounds like you may potentially have power issues. If you're getting serious voltage spikes that could take out a PSU but leave the rest of the server/PC intact. Since a PSU is basically a DC rectifier a little spike in voltage won't do much when converting from ac 120v to dc 12v, but anything over 130v has the potential to knock out the fuse or wreck the electronics of only the PSU while leaving the rest of the setup undamaged. I'd recommend getting a multimeter to check the voltage and Hz coming off the wall where you're plugging these servers in.

server is now all ready for delivery back to the data center.

the two spare powersupplies were both unused - but had been sitting around for a number of years (since I bought the server in fact).

Looks like I hadn't updated this thread for a while - but for completeness, the server has been up and running since June. Thanks to everyone who purchased the book.

Cheers!

Just grabbed the digital copy and have it on my phone and laptop for my leisure time out here.

Thanks again for all your support, Bard!
