    Press 'ALT' and 'F' at the same time
    Turn 'NUM LOCK', 'SCROLL LOCK' and 'CAPS LOCK' on. (Make sure the lights on the keyboard are on.)
    Press 'ALT' and 'P' at the same time. The bios should now be reset to the factory settings.

This is a storage drive from dell.
Dell have quirky systems that are different to the normal run of the mill PC components.
I can only advise you to refer to Dell in this instance.

Hi, I have intel SSR212MA and data on it. I reinstall DOM, How can i assign IP to SAN and restore data? Regards, Anees UR Rehman

Hi ,

Bro Attach a serial cable to the storage system and connect to a laptop. Open a terminal emulation program to run a text interface, such as HyperTerminal* or ProCommPlus*. Use the following settings to configure your session:
  • Bits per second = 19200
  • Data bits = 8
  • Parity = None
  • Stop bits = 1
  • Flow control = None
  • Backspace key sends = Del
  • Emulation = ANSI
If using HyperTerminal, set the properties for the backspace key and emulation after the session is established. If you exit the session and return to the session in order to use the Configuration Interface, the screen will not open correctly.

How can I come back to the initial configuration of a Fas250?

Connect to the FAS250 console by using the provided serial cable.

Logon to the appliance using username 'root' and the root password.

Type the following exactly as shown:
priv set diag
halt -c factory

The filer will reboot and ask for a fresh setup the next time it boots.

This should only be done if you are sure you really want to reset the configuration! This should probably only be done if you know how to then proceed and re-configure the filer.

If you do not have the 'root' password try resetting it. You will have to reboot the filer and type "ctrl-c" when prompted to access the special maintenance boot menu. Then choose the option for resetting the root password.

Switching from 'Mirrored' to 'Striping'?

I don't understand your description. sorry. But if you are switching over from Mirror to stripping then you will surely loose your files. Switching raid configuration will also redo the hard drive relativity and will reformat the drives automatically. If your backup is a server then you need to go to system bios and configure the raid from there. I suggest backup the backups first before you do it. If your backup is an external hard drive then go to its http settings and configure it there. It will surely format your drive.

Different RAID configuration?


The first point to note is that this unit does not support more than 1.6TB total disk. (4 x 400GB drives) This is stated in the manual which is on the CD that came with the unit. You cannot configure a mix of RAID1 and Linear (JBOD) drives, so you plan will not work.

Slow file transfer

What is your connectivity to the SAN? fiber or iSCSI? Have you checked the management tools to see if there are any errors on the data paths? If using iSCSI and the SAN and server are in the same network segment, make sure the default gateway is empty for the iSCSI connection. Look at the routes on the server to make sure the traffic is not leaving the subnet through a router and back to the SAN, and vice versa. If fiber then you'll have to use the tools given to check for errors. Ken

Storage Processor A Problem

I'm not an EMC guy, but that error makes me question the connectivity of SP-A to your Management Server. Check the host port status on both controllers to see if they are active. If this is on a SAN, you might check the switch port status going to SP-A.
