Question about Compaq ProLiant 3000 Server

Compaq Proliant 3000 Server (600mhz/512mg) Raid 5 Problemo

This W2000S has been a VERY dependable Server over the last 10 yrs and I hate to toss it (parts are cheap and right now so am I). We recently had a drive failure (drive 5 of 10 - 15k rpm -18.2 gigs ea ultra 3 scsi) due to a misinstalled DSL modem cable. Replaced drive and the ACU rebuilt it fine, I had to order new spare drive and shut server down to get reorder number and Drive 5 came up bad on restart. Let it run for few days on amber till new drive came in, installed new and now I can't get passed F10 utilities screen on reboot.

Best I can get is flashing cursor in upper left of screen with functional keyboard (caps / num lock) and can warm boot when I go into F10.

If I roll past F10, I get no screen and locked keyboard. Does not make it to mouse in either case.

Should I boot to CD and/or Smartstart? Management Display reads that Array was rebuilt successfully and ALL drives are green .......

    Thanks Teis,



    Yes, this could have been the problem. Loosing the monitor, keyboard and mouse instantly (DSL install) damaged the video output on the motherboard. I ended up having to reinstall windows and rebuild the array. I am currently 99% restored and will likely install a video card when I move unit to new office in a few months. I have a new motherboard, but installing a seperate card looks easier now.

    Could it be that you have
    waited long enough before power down?



    - after inserting the new
    drive?



     


    If you power down before all
    data has been reset on to the new drive (typically one to two hours) you might lose
    all data.´

How to save a raid0 disk


Raid O is no RAID. Data is lost if the hard drive failed. Always use RAID 1 (mirrored) for OS and RAID 5 (striped) for DATA. That's 5 drives your server should shave been configured with.

Not quite sure what your problem is but I would recommend getting Windows Server for a server like this. The HP site recommends the following OSes: Microsoft Windows 2000,
Microsoft Windows Server 2003 (Standard, Enterprise, and Datacenter) ,
LINUX (Red Hat, SuSE) or Microsoft Windows 2000 Datacenter Edition. It is unlikely Windows 7 will install on this 5 year old server.

Meaning of Symbols on Hd rack?


If the server is configured with split SCSI channels these indicate which bays are part of each of the two channels. The common use for this would be to use the split with two drives for a RAID 1 system drive and the remaining four for RAID 5 data or in some cases two sets of RAID 1.

Problem with scsi driver proliant ml 370 for NT4


Are you attempting to boot from the Windows CD?

If you are booting the server from a Windows installation disk and it is unable to detect the hard drive, this typically means the following things.
You need to provide the driver for the RAID controller of the server (this can vary, depending on the version of the ML370 e.g. G4/G5)
If it still cannot detect the hard drive after providing the driver for the RAID controller or if there is not a driver available for NT4, it may not support the controller.
In this case you can remove the RAID set by entering the RAID setup (could be LSI or adaptec). NOTE THIS WILL DESTROY ALL DATA ON THE DISKS THAT ARE A PART OF THIS RAID SET.
