Memory and RAID Card for a Dell 1600SC

I have a Dell 1600 SC server running a RAID one and 2GB of memory. Today I wanted to upgrade to 4GB. I installed the RAM and for some reason it wouldn't take take the RAM I installed. I then thought maybe it isn't the correct RAM. So I placed the old RAM back in the server and I got the an error message again. It completely disallowed the use of the old ram. Not only that the RAID Card went beserk. What could have caused this? Any advice?

Re: Memory and RAID Card for a Dell 1600SC

May be worth reseting the bios using the on-board jumper.

Is the HD SAS/SCSI/SATA on a raid controller?

If so you need to enter the RAID config (not the bios, but there will be a RAID config option during the boot process CTRL+M I believe.. but it will say on screen.) Then you need to set up the raid config, then initialise, then the drive will be detected for loading the OS.

Either that or the drive(s) shafted.

What sort of disks are you using?

I have Dell PowerEdge 2550 Server. I want to configure RAID, but I can't reach RAID MENU! I have DELL 2550 Server BOOT CD and Dell OpenMenage Server Assistant V7.2. All of them are running, but I...

RAID menu will either be CTRL-A (if you are using the onboard PERC 3/Di) or CTRL-M (if you are using an addin PERC 3/4). If you are not seeing either of these options, then you may not have it enabled in the BIOS. In the BIOS (F2), go to Integrated Devices and make sure that RAID is Enabled. In order to enable RAID, your server MUST have a RAID key, RAID memory DIMM (different from system memory), and a RAID battery.

I just managed to mess up my 1600 SC with Linux Mandrake. I want to change it from raid 5 to Win 7 and turn it into a JBOD. I can't get it to recognize the dvd player so the win disc won't fire up...ideas?...

Is there a RAID card Eg PERC installed? If so, did you use the hardware raid setup? Also, Why do you want to put Windows 7 on a Server? Have you thought about Windows Server 2003 or 2008?

Open her up and check all the connections and also the BIOS settings. Does the DVD drive appear in the BIOS detection screen? I would suggest tackling the DVD issue first! Maybe that you need to change the order that it boots so that the DVD drive is first.

New hard drive won't go online on our Dell RAID server.

This needs to be reconfigured again. My suggestion is to call DELL again so that things happen they can still able to do the replacement of the hard drive.

Dell PowerEdge 1600SC Server problem

I had the same thing happen in a 600SC about a month ago.
Replaced the memory, and it fixed the problem.

It did the same hang. Would run fine for any where from a hour to 3 hours, and then quit (hang). And I got the same message. Talk to them and it was a short in the memory module, so some times it would read the entire stick, other times it would "not see it", and that would lock the OS.
