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.

I Have An IBM x3400 How do i test the smps using a voltometer


Since you haven't mentioned the type of server its unsure server has single type or dual type SMPS. This issue can due to SMPS as well Plannar (motherboard) issue. But as per post i really doubt you have bad motherboard since you see BMC and other LEDS on motherboard gets blinking..

You can troubleshoot motherboard issue this way. Press and hold server power button. Check if this makes server start. If it starts, then its confirmed you have bad motherboard.. You may also inspect whether motherboard has bulged capacitors inside..

Thanks

How to find the service tag of SUN NETRA 240 server


Hello,

Most service tag info can be found in the systems BIOS setting. I am not sure if SUN put that information there or not.

Good Luck

Hello,

The only other place that I know of is eBay. Dell is very slow getting a replacement to you and eBay has increase its standards to prevent fraud and misrepresentation. I would check there. If you see one you like, you can email the seller if you have any questions.

Good Luck

What hard drives can I use as replacements?


Call Dell with your Service Tag.
Lifetime support is included on all Dell servers.
Last time I called them I dialed (800) 945-3355
They can sell you the hardware you need and guarantee it will work with your server. They might even be able to help explain the process of installing the drives.

I recommend that you use Acronis' Imaging software (www.acronis.com) so that you can make an exact copy of your data and apply it to the replacement volumes. If you are using a RAID1 array make sure the new array is completely built before applying your image. Builds can take a long time. I created a RAID1 array with 2-320GB disks and it took 3.5 hours to build the RAID1 array.

I hope this helps.

Please vote for my solution if it helps.

Hi,
Kindly check the UPS output and also see if all your SMPS have got damaged due to excess power . Try a work around by replacing one SMPS with a new one . Also check you have antivirus installed with all the latest updates .Service pack up to date. Good Luck.

Hi i have a dell poweredge 2850. Orange LED blinking


It sounds like a hard disk has failed or fallen out of sync.
This can be a serious problem if not addressed ASAP.

Call Dell, they have lifetime phone support for their servers.

Write down the Express Service Code and Service Tag number that is on the server chassis before you call.
This is the last number I used for server support: (800) 945-3355
If it doesn't work you should be able to find a valid number at support.dell.com

I hope this helps.
