Question about Compaq ProLiant 3000 Server
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 .......
Well, well :-)
problem solved, that makes me fell real good all over.
- Would you mind "vote"?
- Would appreciate the "FixYa"
and Happy New Year
