Does your server have RAID card??
why do you need second NIC??
if it is stand alone without RAID. you can use any NIC. that will fit the AGP slot.

I have one bad usb port


If you need multiple USB ports, go onto ebay and find a 3.3v PCI usb card. The large PCIX slots in the server are PCI compatible and will accept a 3.3v pci card. (It just doesnt fill the entire socket), or you will notice to the bottom of the mainboard there is ONE 5v pci slot, you can get a 5v PCI USB cotroller and stick it in there.

Either way, you have more USB sockets. As the mainboard ones are built in, if its broken, you either need to get a new mainboard (not cheap), or get a cheap PCI USB card.

(Note if using ESX, ESX 3.5 and below do not recognise USB ports anyway).

I have one myself and have done as mentioned.

What type of nic to add


Cannot be PCIe, as they are not supported - PCI or PCI-X. Check the slots, you may only be able to use 3.3/5V cards.

And as a sidenote ... the PowerEdge 2600 does not support x64 Operating Systems and does not support hardware-assisted virtualization (VT on Intel processors), so you will be limited on which VM solutions you can use.

Dell Power Edge 2600. It has an ERA nic but can't configure it?


The ERA is not like the more modern DRAC's ... it must be configured through the OS.

Connect ide or sata drives to a dell poweredge 2600 for additional storage


Yes and No..

The standard machine only allows SCSI, (no IDE or SATA or SAS connectors...

However SCSI drives are not cheap.. so

To overcome the power issue (you will notice there are no 4 pin molex connectors, or sata power connectors). However there is a 4 pin molex socket on the SCSI backplane. You can use one of those molex adaptor cables (one connector to many) to get power, from the molex you can use a 4 pin to SATA power connector.

Next step is to decide the drive you want to use. I personally use SCSI, SATA, SAS and IDE in mine (overkill I know).

Cheapness says use IDE or SATA. You can get a pci IDE/SATA controller card on ebay dirt cheap (PCI cards are compatible with the large PCIX slots), they dont take the entire "socket" up but they work (be carefull here, there is one 5v pci socket on these machines, and 6 pcix sockets, the pcix sockets will accept 3.3v pci cards (look at the notches).

Next you have to mount them, with a bit of jiggery pokery you can feed the IDE/SATA cables past the SCSI backplane into the hot swap bay. (If you dont have any empty caddy's pick them up off ebay), just remember you cant just pull em out like you can with the SCSI's!) - or use one of the 5 1/2 media bays.

Plud the other ends into the appropriate controller card (as installed in the PCI bus).

Load up the OS, install drivers (if needed - these should come with the pci card(s), use the disk manager to initialise/first format the drives etc.

All done.

I have done this myself running a 2600, with 2X U320 72gb SCSI (on Raid) 1 x IDE CD/DVDRW in Media bay, DAT 27 SCSI (channel B) in the second media bay. 2x 146gb SAS on a DELL SAS pcix card (in 2 of the hot swap bays) and an old 160gb IDE HDD (Funilly enough theres a bit towards the back of the two fans on the SCSI backplane that if you press the 3 1/2 drive against seems to fit perfectly in this place and stay there! (I think thats fluke to be honest).

All done :)

Drive Options with a Dell Poweredge 2600


I would definitively not recommend to remove the backplates, unless you want to ask for serious trouble with your system.

I would install a PCI SATA adapter card (one like these) and connect your SATA drives to it.

A Dell PowerEdge Server will not start. The server goes through the boot sequence, but after a while there is no activity. OS: Windows 2000 server


This sounds like a RAM issue or a strange peripheral problem (when the driver loads it kills the system). Try running the system on only 1 stick of RAM at a time, swapping until you find a bad stick. Also, clean the contacts off with a pencil eraser before putting them in.

If this doesn't help, pull PCI cards one by one (except for the RAID card, if any - but do pull out, clean and put back in the RAID card just in case it's a contact issue) at a time until the system boots (or just try safe mode, but this won't tell you which one is a problem).

If the system still can't boot, then I'd say it's probably the motherboard.

Dell poweredge 1650 and norton ghost


okay, hate to answer my own question. Where I got confused was with the protocol.ini file that is used in Norton Ghost on a boot disk to load the network information, including the network protocol to be used (netbeui in this case) and what network card was to be used. Thus the last part of the protocol.ini file is where I needed to add the missing information. I needed to add the slot = required value to identify what one of two network cards in the dell PowerEdge 1650 was to be used to connect to the ghost server (in this case, the two cards were idenified by a number such as 0x0110 and 0x0120). The strange thing is that I also noticed that there is a third network port on the back of the server, but I am not sure if it is active or not, but nothing came of as of yet. But I am now happy to report that I can connect to the ghost server to image the machine I need to image.

PowerEdge 2600 does not boot up ?


you need to set the boot device order. Usually F12.
or you can go to bios with F2 or F10.

your cd-rom is wrong you need the Instalation and Server Management CD. I think it's possible to download this cd at their site.

good luck
