1eWEEK Labs Takes a Look at the Lenovo ThinkServer RD120
by Matthew D. Sarrel
Removing the top of the server shows how well-designed it is inside. All components can be accessed easily, although there is a lot packed into a small case. Various removable baffles ensure proper internal air flow for cooling.
The ThinkServer RD120 offers comprehensive diagnostic indicators and useful video and USB front-side ports.
The front face of the operator information panel includes LEDs for basic status information. The exclamation point indicates an error. Sliding the blue button to the left pops out the entire panel.
The ejected light path diagnostics panel can indicate up to 16 different errors at a glance. A branch office user could report this error status to corporate tech support and hopefully save a trip out to that location.
These stickers provide more detail regarding the operation and interpretation of the light path diagnostics and operator information panel.
