When RGS mode is enabled and the diagnostics adaptor is inserted, the HEALTH and POWER LEDs blink at a 1-cycle-per-second rate. As a security feature, RGS mode does not display video normally if a user is logged into the blade. This feature is provided to alert users that the blade is currently in RGS mode and not in a failed state. Removing the diagnostic adaptor restores the previous LED states. - Improves blade health reporting by using system BIOS version 2.05. When both this package and System BIOS version 2.05 are installed, some health LED fault reporting is redefined.
