I have had a very similar behavior happen on two sunblade 2500 and in
both cases reseating the CPUs fixed it. They tend to come loose in
shipping or being moved around I guess. The power up and spin up fans
before shutting right down is what they would do with no CPUs installed
too. You might try that. On one of them it took a couple of reseating
before it worked again but, then it was fine forever.
