Question about Dell PowerEdge 1800 Server
i am using ur poweredgeserver.Now the SMPS has gone off.
I would like to know can i retrive the data from the server.
The best solution is to get another power supply and back the data up.
If you can't do that, and you have SCSI drives, then I would suggest marking the drives (0, 1, 2, 3, etc) and putting them in another Dell Power Edge server with the same RAID card and reading them that way. It can be dangerous to your data if you don't know what you are doing.
There are programs out there that can help you re-construct your RAID if needed. CaptainNemo and RAID Reconstructor have helped me in the past. If you have a Dell Perc 3/DI in your existing server, I may have the parameters for those programs.
Let me know.
