Question about Dell PowerEdge 4400 Server

I need to get to the configuration utility

Usually when I configure the nic/ip address on other dell servers at my company I usually get a startup screen with various control prompts. It's either a contrl/E or cntrl/D but in this case I only get a cntrl/a scsi config or cntrl/m - which gives me the config utility for rebuilding the disks. i don't get a cntrl/e or cntrl/d - why ?

    Normally control/e control/d is working?
    Have you tried with another keyboard?
    All disks are working fine in the server, no one needs to be replaced?

These menus are for SCSI/SAS controllers. If your server doesnt have a SCSI/SAS controller installed, or if it is disabled then you would not receive these prompts.

IP address change needed on a AlphaServer DS10


First, identify the NIC you wish to change; use:

$ MC LANCP <ret>

> SHOW DEVICE


Next, use the menu driven utility "TCPIP$CONFIG", to set your desired IP address etc:

$ @TCPIP$CONFIG <ret>

Option 1 - core environment

Option 2 - Interfaces (then select your NIC or the IP Addr to change)

Option 2 - add/change a Primary address on *** (where *** is your NIC).

Need to know how to send scan to email on the alfio ricoh 2051 printer?


It's quite a lengthy process to achieve this.
Best would probably be to open an Internet Browser and type the IP Address of the printer into the address field. You will have to login to be able to administer the printer.

It is usually much easier to do the configuration through the web interface, than on the user interface directly at the printer.

The following link points to the printers manual: http://support.ricoh.com/bb_v1oi/pub_e/oi/0001027/0001027282/VB1416700A/B1416700A.pdf

See page 75 "Email Destinations" on how to configure an smtp server and email addresses.

Hope you get along with the manual and good luck.

My server has 2 NIC one of them connected to the router (ISP) and one of them is connected to the LAN.But DHCP and DNS working but there is no internet to the Host and also the server itself.when i...


Hello,

This is more a configuration error. Depending on how you have your DHCP setup, you may need to adjust it's setting. No mention of what os you are using but if you set your DHCP to give IP addresses only to the LAN, set the ISP NIC address to receive its ip from the ISP provider, you should be able to get Internet access to your server and the LAN.

If you have done so, use the server os to setup your Internet connection. Answer a few questions about how you connect to the Net and the os will do most of the configuration for you.

Good Luck

Nic teaming on poweredge t300


NIC teaming is useless unless you have a switch that support teaming.
However, Dell servers have free lifetime phone support ((800) 945-3355).
They should be able to help.

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.

Make additional DNS


Yes, all Windows Servers have the option to install DNS.

Set up a second Windows server and configure it to be a secondary server for your DNS domains on you current server.

Add the second DNS server's IP address to the secondary DNS field to your DHCP scope options and to all computers with static IP configuration so they will use it when your primary DNS is unavailable.

Don't underestimate Window's built-in Help and Support. It will help you install DNS and configure it.

Good luck.

How to get into the configuration utility to set the nic/ip address


The dell PE server should have a PXE boot menu. You probably need to go into PXE menu and configure, or they need to provide a PXE server so the server can boot from PXE automatically.
