Dell (Foxconn ls-36) server chassis intrusion bypass
Hi i built a dell server (based on foxconns ls-36) two xeon chips and the lot. However i dont have the original chassis(Actually i dont have a chassis) for the intrusion function. Problem is that in post it gives an error that the side pannel is off and then runs all fans at full speed(It's huge fans, LOUD). The plug on the mobo is 5 pins(i think). So i want the mobo to think the chassis is closed without frying it.
Question is "How?"
Thanx in advance

Might consider looking in the BIOS to disable the function.Imagine a world where dogs took bad owners to the pound...

I know this is FAR past the post date but, I ran across this in a google search and tought I would answer it for anyone else who ran into the same situation.
First: As mentiond, look for a BIOS setting to disable the Intrusion switch/Case open switch.
Second: If no BIOS setting is avaliable update your BIOS to the newest firmware and see if the option is avaliable now.
Third: Look for Acoustic settings in the BIOS. You may have a "Performance" or "Acoustic" mode that can be ticked on.
Finally, as a system builder, you SHOULD already know how to do this. *insert back of the head thwack here*. Look up the pinout for the F_PANEL header (check the board manufacturers manual. Available online or in print with retail board) and put a regular jumper on here. (What was used on IDE HDD's or rob one from an old motherboard CMOS clear)
Also, as a regular PC user, don't build a server from server parts. They are FAR to complex for you and you won't find an online base for help to speak of. I look for people in need of server help to protect manufacturers from wrongful component returns but I cannot get to everyone. Post questions On eggxpert or Tomshardware an look for puttsy, PM me with your problem(s) ON THOSE FORUMS and I will try and assist you. If you want a server, go all or nothing. Don't half-donkey it in a big case (Full-ATX?) Use a SERVER chassis, THEY ARE WORTH THE PREMIUM! Boards are designed for server cases, just as engines are designed for car's compartments. They make them so they fit where they are designed for for a reason. Don't be stupid.
