In some implementations, service controllers of a computing device are associated with various disparate components of the computing device, and in response to a command issued to any one of the components, the service controllers may communicate with each other in order to transmit data responsive to the command. For example, a computing device may comprise a Baseboard Management Controller (BMC) and a Serial Attached SCSI Expander card (SAS Expander). The BMC of computing device receives a remote command requesting status of a hard drive coupled to the computing device, and the BMC communicates the command to the SAS Expander, for example over a system bus of the computing device. The SAS Expander retrieves a response to the command and communicates the response to the BMC, which then transmits the response to the remote site.

In some implementations, a system controller (104) of a computing device (100) can be configured to receive a power-on signal and prevent the computing device (100) from providing power to components of the computing device (100). In some implementations, upon receiving a power-on signal, the system controller (104) can retrieve fault data from a power supply unit (116). The fault data can be analyzed to determine whether the power supply unit detected an unrecoverable failure. When an unrecoverable failure is detected, the system controller (104) can prevent the power supply unit (116) from providing power to other components of the computing device (100). In some implementations, an unrecoverable failure can be detected when the fault data (118) indicates that an overcurrent, an overvoltage, or an over-temperature fault has occurred.

An apparatus adapted to house a component oriented in a first direction used for facilitating insertion and removal of the component in a second direction to/from a chassis, the first direction orthogonal to the second direction. The apparatus can be a caddy with an attached pivoting handle. Pivoting the handle in the first direction down towards the caddy causes the hard drive to slide in the second direction to couple with a hard drive coupling on the chassis. In some implementations, the caddy houses a hard drive in a vertical orientation, such that multiple hard drives can be coupled side-by-side to each other. In some implementations, the caddy is removably attached to the chassis. The chassis can comprise a rail, and the handle can comprise a hook. The hook attaches to the rail forming a removable attachment that allows for easy removal and insertion of the caddy.

A state-detection device, adapted in a host, includes a battery, a gas gauge, a processor, and a display. The battery is operating in an operation state. The gas gauge is configured to instantly detect the operation state and stores state information of the battery in a plurality of registers. The processor determines, according to the state information, whether the battery is operating in a normal state, a temporary failure state, or a permanent failure state to generate state-determination information. When the battery is operating in the temporary failure state, the processor further determines whether the temporary failure state is an over-temperature state, an over-voltage state, or an over-current state according to a first value, a second value, and a third value, respectively, of the state information. The display is configured to display the state-determination information.

A hard drive tray device applied in a server is provided. The server includes a housing. The hard drive tray device includes a rail member and a tray. The rail member is disposed at the inner wall of the housing. The tray is slidably engaged with the rail member so as to slide between an expanded position and a closed position relative to the housing. The tray includes a base for carrying two storage devices. The base has a hollow portion. The storage devices are respectively located at two sides of the hollow portion. When the tray slides to the expanded position, one of the storage devices and at least a part of the hollow portion are located outside the housing.

In some implementations, an IP address can be configured for a computing device using an out-of-band communication channel. For example, a system administrator can configure a system controller (e.g., baseband management controller) with an IP address using an out-of-band communication channel. In some implementations, the system controller can be configured with the IP address when the computing device is powered down. The system controller can store the IP address in memory associated with the system controller. In some implementations, an operating system of the computing device can be configured with an agent (e.g., process, application, utility) that will request the IP address from the system controller and configure the computing device to use the IP address. For example, the operating system agent can use various operating system commands to configure the IP address for the computing device based on the IP address received from the system controller.
