So when I began looking for a solution, I came across this SBUU utility, that is supposed to be actually compatible with all my servers I own PowerEdge , , , But does not work with these or , when it says it should.

They are in the list provided with the utility preface. I have downloaded the Dell system build and utility version 1. I keep getting these errors, from all machines.

The SBUU utility is supposed to allow the temporary install of drivers off the disk created, so you can then install the OS. I have tried installing directly as you would with any other machine.

I am using the OS disk at this point, and end up with this issue. Have no idea how to get around any of this. I dont know where else to turn.

This has me stumped. What SP level is your media? SP1 was released around the time 6. Check the documentation from SBUU. As far as drivers go for use only with the Windows media, the file you use depends on which controller you are using and whether you are installing x86 or x Yes, it is an EXE, but it is a self-extracting file The files can then be used during the installation process. In regards to the prompt for a driver I've spoken to my account manager, but she can't help as the VS is now end-of-life.

I have two Dell PowerEdge servers with Netware 6. Randomly they with hang with a blank black screen. There is no option except to hard reboot. Nothing ever shows in abend. Next time it happens try to get into the debugger with shift-shift-alt-esc - this often works even if no other keys do. If you get to a prompt you are in the debugger, it could be software or hardware.

If it always hangs in the same module it is likely to be a problem with that module, if it is always different modules it is likely to be a hardware fault. Enter Q enter to exit the debugger to Dos. Is anyone else experiencing these issues?? Is there a reason why?? I have a Dell PowerEdge that was working correctly. It has the PERC 5i raid card. I configured it to use 2 disks as a raid 1 mirror virtual disk and 5 disks as a raid 5 virtual disk with the last disk as a global hot spare.

The drive in slot 3 has failed with a flashing continuous amber light. I got a new drive and installed it in slot 3 and I still have an amber flashing light. I took a disk from slot 4 and moved it to slot 3 and moved the new disk to slot 4. It started to rebuild the disk in slot 4. The disk that was moved to slot 3 is now flashing amber. Is it a bad slot 3? Last night I rechecked all the cables and found that the other end of the raid back plane cable a was loose at the riser card.

I reseated the cable and started the system and the drive was recognized. I have another question: I had deleted the Virtual disk as part of my troubleshooting. If I recreated the virtual disk with the same original configuration without initializing the drives would it have come back as a good disk with all of my data still intact? I am using this as a VMware server and I was able to get the drive back after recreating the virtual disk but my Virtual Machines are corrupt.

I think the name I used is different than the original name which is messing up the config of the vms. We don't have a server room, so it will need to sit in the office. Is it so loud that we couldn't carry a normal conversation in the same room? It's loud enough that you probably wouldn't want it in a general office area. That said, I can't see why you wouldn't be able to carry a normal conversation in the same room. I have a PowerEdge server in use. For the amber light comes on with the error message LED.

Sorry for the delay in answering, we were undergoing maintenance on the forums right after your post. In regards to your post, what I would start with would be making sure that the controller is up to date on driver AND firmware.

The reason is is that the controller being out of date can cause false battery errors. If you let me know the OS and raid controller in use I can get you the links needed to update. Both the server and the RAID controller are on the hardware compatibility list. Since it's ESXi, the catch is that you can't see the logs until it finishes installing. This was corrected by updating the motherboard BIOS. We had version 2. The PE has a internal sata controller as well as I remember - have you disabled it in bios?

I have successfully installed NetWare 6. Any reason why DOS 6. For the ESX 3. It seems you can buy a Poweredge only with SAS disks. So I have a couple of questions:.

So it looks like everything is okay. I'm not entirely sure why the MD has connectors on the back labelled "in" and "out", but anyway, I have it connected to my DELL PE and it seems to be working for me. We' re trying to install ESX 3. The only info we found on this topic referes to previous than 3.

Hi guys, Our company owns a poweredge and I need to select a new tape backup drive for it. Ideally I would like LTO 3. Can any one recommend a particular dell model that is compatible and have had some success with? Will I need to buy any extra pci cards etc?

Anything beyond that was untested by Dell. As theflash explained, you will need to have matching processors and the system will need to be completely updated.

Hello, We recently Purchased a Dell Poweredge Im pretty new to the Hardware side of things, so any help woould be much appreciated. Thanks, this solved my problem as well. Well every 15 seconds I guess I should say. I just purchased a Dell Poweredge with Quad core processors. I mirrored the Sys drive and have a 3 drive Raid 5 array for data. I used the Dell Server CD to install but think that there has to be a hardware or firmware issue.

This server should be smoking when 1 person is connected - me the Administrator of the box. Has anyone experienced this with a Dell ? I was wondering if it could be the RAID controller or something. Please send some recommendations. I just installed vCenter Server for the first time. I read through the admin guide and tried to add the hosts to cluster with EVC enabled.

Is there a workaround for this? These 4 phyical disks are currently set up as 2 totally seperate mirrors, occupying slots 12 boot and 89 data , which is nice and redundant, but sloooow. We would like to install a further 4 drives, probably in slots 3 4 5 6 and set these drives up as a RAID 10 array.

Is that possible, with this hardware without destroying at least one of the existing mirrors? You shouldnt have an issue creating the next array. The slot positions are not important to the controller, as you tell it the drives that are in the arrays. So even though the drives are going between the other array drives the controller wont have an issues with it.

Are there drivers for it included now? And if not, are they available - and how can I install Solaris on a machine like this with them. I don't know if anyone is still interested but I have attempted to install update 4 on a with no luck. The install goes great. The OS sees the card and hard drives and it takes less than 30 min. I am playing around in the BIOS to see if changing anything there works but I have not found anything yet.

Does anyone have any info that would help. I install the drivers. Then at some point of the process, I get a message that arcsas. Windows skips this driver and continues with the installation. Then I get a Blue Screen of Death. You'll probably want to ask Adaptec about this, as it's their raid controller and their driver. There may be a minimum SP requirement for the driver that you're using, or possibly a hotfix requirement which may mean you need to build this into the ISO so the hotfix is there during the OS install.

I'd like to install a hot-spare drive for my Raid 5 array. The empty slots, however, appear to have blanks as opposed to the trays for the Dell supplied trays the Dell HD trays have green status LEDs. Hey David, what was the eventual outcome to this?

I phave just purchased 4 of the drives you mentioned above as welll as 4 of the Dell braned drives, same Seagate.

The OEM ones are fine and the Seagate ones are the same as you described. Has the raid set you built with the sense errors functioned OK? I have tried using a write-up on the LSI vib file install and i have tried open-manage offline bundle. Try the latest release: I'm getting conflicting messages from people regarding the number of slots in a DELL Poweredge tower. I have a host that stops responding and was unable to reconnect. I had to reboot the server. I have attached screenshot.

For some reason the Information Store will not inititalize. So I've decided to un-install Exchange and do a re-install. I've saved my data store and will want to import it back into the re-install Exchange.

How to mount database to reinstalled exchange ? Make sure that always keep a original copy of old database 1. Go to EMS 2. Create the storage group with name like old one which contains the old database 3. Copy old database to the store location 4. Then, mount old store 8. Ran Clean-mailboxdatabase, all the mailboxes appeared as Disconnected mailbox 9.

Modify the CSV file like the way in this article Using import-csv and connect-mailbox cmdlets reconnected all the users in Bulk For example: I'm having strange issue. Any idea how to fix this? I've updated firmware of network cards I already had latest firmware and under Windows both network cards was working.

Anybody has experience with the following? They do look the same However, you may be better off just selling them as AX drives and buying much cheaper regular drives and make some money.

The AX can only use 'AXdrives'; generic drives won't work. Due to this they are more valuable. I'm unable to install ESX on the machine! The III is a refresh to the It has newer motherboard to support newer processors and other hardware updates. You will need ESX 3. That release has the latest driver support for PERC 6i. Or you can use patch esx We are trying to install ESXi 3. I have also 3 of this kind of server and I want to use the ESXi as well. Even if one did exist, it wouldn't fit in the caddy there isn't any spare room between the drive and the backplane, otherwise the drive wouldn't make contact with the backplane , and it would introduce another point of failure.

I checked up on your drive - it's not an Ultra 2 Wide drive, but an Ultra drive, so it's not as old as I thought. Still, it isn't worth messing around with. I am installing a PowerEdge System. Iwould support you to post this in Windows Server Forum. OpenManage will only create the first C: You can set the size of this partition during the install process. Any other partitions that you wish to create will have to be done in the OS after install.

OS is Ubuntu Server Shows up in gdisk and parted as only being 2TB. The H will support larger disks, but it is not offfcially supported in these systems. That doesnt mean it wont work, in fact, someone has done this and reported success. Following the Dell specs. Thanks a lot in advance Alejandro. I am wondering if someone here have had a similar experience. My situation is quite inimical to what I claim to do. The machine crashed over the weekend. This machine is Dell pweredge Since I can't easily recover information.

I got a dell poweredge with fresh install of sbs r2. Now the network is up and there is nothing in anything. The backup are not the once sought.

Next move now is to use openmange software to rebuild one of the failed RAID 5 array. I believe there could be two drives gone bad. The issue here is when I boot the dell poweredge I get the following: I meanwhen the harddrive comes up to boot into OS. Disk 0 - 4are fine except disk 1 ASYN - start request failed. What can I do to solve this problem with rebuilding the HDD in the array? I will like to add back the old machine poweredge back to the network.

In that case can I demote it or is it better to demote the new one? Can two sbsDomain controller exist without problem in a network? What is the best way to deal with this problem? Please help if you can thank alot.

The 1st thing he should do is get someone familiar with SBS to assist. But it do not boot arch. I read that need some certified or something like that. Iso image is good, it boot from other computers without problem. It's been a couple of months since I cannot configure a rack PE III on the italian dell website the machine is listed, without price, and clicking on the configure button an error page pops-out The guys from the italian sales dept told me, don't worry, you can configure and order it on the phone, but I don't want to buy a machine which is in that situation.

It is my understanding that the website configurators are not fully functioning with all of the third gen servers yet. OpenMange Server Administrator is reporting that the battery has failed.
