First, buy an external storage device, at least 80GB (although it's currently difficult to find any _smaller_ size!) and make a file-by-file, folder-by-folder, backup of your 73GB of "data".

Second, buy another external storage device, and do a Google-search for "drive image freeware".
Pick one of those applications, and do a "image" backup to this second external storage device.

Third, disconnect the 3 "old" drives, carefully label them, and set them aside.

Fourth, connect the 3 "new" drives, delete the old RAID-5 array definition,
and create a new RAID-5 array definition.

Fifth, do an "image restore" from the second external storage device to the new array.

If you have any problems, all you need to do to "back-out" is to:
* disconnect the "new" drives
* reconnect the "old" drives
* delete the "new" array definition
* redefine the "old" array definition

and you're back to the "old" configuration.

Hi, within the previous 12hrs my e-series server bombed out - there are two issues (1) Memory DIMM malfunction (2) serveRAID-7k error 2807... I removed the faulty memory DIMMs, but the RAID error still...


You can recover RAID data from hard drive with RAID recovery software easily.
Tenorshare Data Recovery Enterprise is a comprehensive data recovery software that supports RAID recovery for RAID 0 and RAID 5. Lost data in RAID 0 and RAID 5 can be deeply scanned and restored immediately. Meanwhile, files and folders in RAID 0 and RAID 5 can be copied to other partitions directly. http://www.any-data-recovery.com/product/datarecoveryenterprise.htm

Where can i find the bios boot screen?


Turn the computer on.
When you see the "Press DEL to enter BIOS SETUP" message, press the 'DEL' key.

Depending on which BIOS you have, and what storage-controller you have, your storage-controller may be listed -- especially if a disk-drive is attached to the storage-controller.

Or, for some storage-controllers, do *NOT* press the 'DEL' key. Instead, wait for the "Press CTRL-A to enter..." for some SCSI storage-controllers.

Without more details about your manufacturer and type of storage-controller (SATA? SCSI?) it's impossible to give more-specific advice.

Please Help for IBM Serveraid Config Disk!!!!!!


Don't apologize for your English - I only wish my German was as good.
I'm not sure if this will help or not, so please don't grade me low if it doesn't, it's the best information I could find in a very small window of time.

Your controller is no longer officially supported, but IBM's downloads section has the configuration utilities for their Server RAID controllers available here: http://downloadcenter.intel.com/Detail_Desc.aspx?agr=Y&ProductID=301&DwnldID=579&strOSs=All&OSFullName=All%20Operating%20Systems&lang=deu

If it recognizes your card you're in luck!

Note: You may need some of the other downloads as well. Look to the sidebar links for those.

P.S. If you intend to use Linux there are a number of sites that discuss drivers and how to configure this card in that environment.

Good Luck!

SCSI BIOS not installed / ML150G2, exchanged mainboard, RAID


hi..
my guess is no but since i haven't dealt with this type of server i'm going to suggest you go to hp.
if you just goto hp.com and search on live chat and a link will come up.. they should be able to help unless it's too old since i'm not sure what generation we are on now..

good luck, hope this helps a little..d

SCSI and IDE HDs, can they work together?


This next solution is viable in win 98, and I don?t see any reason why it shouldn?t work for you too. If you know of anything I?m missing you should consult someone else. The solution is slightly complex, so I hope I can explain it properly: 1. Create a startup disk so you can format and install windows. 2. Set the new HD as master and connect it to Primary IDE. 3. Disconnect the SCSI and remove it. 4. Restart the computer with the disk you created (with the new HD connected). 5. Go to the Bios settings in order to make sure that the computer does recognize the new HD as the primary drive in the first IDE. 6. Now, FDisk the new HD, set the partitions, restart and format it. Install the OS and make sure it is working properly. 7. Insert the SCSI and restart again. 8. At this stage the computer would reboot into the IDE and see the SCSI/ You may have to change something in the OS settings for that, but I don?t know where. Good luck.

NetRAID-2M hangs out while initializing HDDs


Here's a link to the fireware update tool you need to do the flash: http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/SoftwareDescription.jsp?lang=en&cc=us&prodTypeId=329290&prodSeriesId=65146&swItem=ns-9915-1&prodNameId=19319&swEnvOID=54&swLang=13&taskId=135&mode=4&idx=0 As for never getting the chance to boot from the floppy drive to update the drives, try using the ServeRAID controller just to flash the drives then put the NetRAID-2M controller back in.
