Question about IBM (01K7207) SCSI Controller
We had a IBM e346 8840 Server and 2 RAMS were malfunctioning. When the RAM is removed its giving a message SCSI Controller not found. We tried to upgrade the Flash BIOS but it also cannot find the controller. Please help
SOURCE: I have IBM eServer with
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.
