Lower fanspeed on PA-500 so it can be used close to a desktop environment (or at home)?

L6 Presenter

With PA-200 there is a command similar to:


set system setting fan-mode auto


in order to throttle the onboard fan(s) so it doesnt rev up to max rpm and stays there as it normally might do.


But this command doesnt seem to exist for the PA-500 series or am I missing somthing here?


All I could find is (output from: show system environmental):


Slot Description Alarm RPMs Min RPM

S0 Fan #1 Operational False True 1

S0 Fan #2 Operational False True 1


Doesnt seem to even detect a RPM, the sound can confirm the fans are operating...


L5 Sessionator

That command is for PA200 box only.

L3 Networker

> The only vitals that you can check for is the LED front panel of the appliance :


Green All fans are operating normally.
Red One or more fans have failed.

Red There is a hardware failure, which may include power supply
detected but not working, fan failure, HA failover, or temperature
above high temperature threshold.
Off The device is operating normally
