Do look to address your cooling issues as overheated gear (processors, disks, etc) doesn't tend to last as long, but you're currently within the published Apple specifications for at least one of the Xserve models around.
- Operating temperature: 50° to 95° F (10° to 35° C)
- Storage temperature: –40° to 116° F (–40° to 47° C)
- Relative humidity: 5% to 95% (noncondensing)
- Altitude: 0 to 3048 meters (0 to 10,000 feet)
Check your particular specific Xserve model for details; these environmental specifications tend to be available in various spots including the hardware installation manual.
Do get the environmental systems implemented or repaired. Server rooms can heat up very quickly when cooling systems are underrated or fail, and many I've dealt with have baked servers overnight or over a weekend.Mac OS X (10.5.5)

106F isn't really that hot.
Are you sure the fans are running full on or is it just the normal noise of the cooling fans running?

Currently Being ModeratedApr 25, 2009 7:56 AM (in response to DaddyPaycheck)The fans run at 6000 RPM, and never go up or down from there, so it was my assumption that they were at max. But the good news is we have found a more secure, and better climate controlled room for our server storage. Thanks for your help, this info will help in the future!X-Serve, Mac OS X (10.5.2)
