I not only need the server up but it is imperitive to save the data. I was unable to back the system up do to stupid security implementations.

Normally , the OS is on 1 partition and data on another.
if you have this , no issue , re-format the 1st partition and re-install the OS , data will be untouched .
If you have is all on one partition (not advisable, loss of disk space , etc.,) , then boot from bartpe or ultimate boot CD, copy out the data , then re-format everything and re-install.
this should put you back to good stead.
if you have external hd , then copy out data to it, else, copy to network drive (another server etc.,).

One of the drives failed. Replaced the drive but all drive Red LEDs began to flash. Does this mean that the raid is rebuilding?


Most likely, yes. It can take several hours to rebuild depending on the size of your drives.

You can install Adaptec Storage Manager (assuming you're using an adaptec controller) to see what it's doing (and send you alerts on a drive failure).

If you have another brand controller, they should have some similar software to view the status of the RAID.

SuperMicro superserver 6013P-i Windows 2003 After building power issues, this server constantly restarts. It gets to the windows screen for 10 seconds, then a blue screen flashes so quickly i can't even...


Hello here is the homepage:

http://www.supermicro.com/products/system/4U/7043/SYS-7043P-8R.cfm

Blue screen of death, means you have a bad driver or a system file.
I think the hard drive, is failing.
This is probably why, you can`t start in failsafe mode either.
But do check the ram modules, for fault aswell.

Good luck

Could well be a RAM issue. There is a chance that reseating it may fix your problem. To do this, open up the case, making sure you undo all the necessary screws and it is unplugged, inside on the motherboard there should be at least one strip of RAM, (if your not sure what it looks like, google it and it should become quite clear), it wont have anything else connected to it. It is seated with two clips, one either end of the RAM, push these down and the RAM should easily 'pop' out. If there is more than one, do it to them all. Then push them back in, making sure that they are FULLY clipped back in, this is important as you can damage your whole system if they aren't.
If you still have the same error when booting, then if you had more than one strip of RAM, then take out the others and try them all one at a time on their own. Booting each time with only one RAM module in the system.
The RAM will look like this: laurence6821.jpg

Dell PE1800 psu wont swith off...Computer powers down but psu fan continues to run. Have to pull the power plug to shut it down.


Sounds like the PSU is overheating. Some PSU's are designed to keep the fan running to cool it down even after system shut down. I would let the fan run after shutdown to see how long it takes to shut itself off. If there are no environmental issues tat are causing overheating you might want to consider replacing the PSU.

Red led at SCSI drive# 2 and 5


I think it's not the problem with your SCSI drive.
Long beep might be because of the RAM. Take a look inside and see if everything's alright with RAM. Carefully replace it to another slot if there are empty.
Download and use a program like MemTest to see if RAM is properly working.
If you have another computer which is compatible with your RAM, try it inserting then in to PC and see if everyhting's alright.
If nothing helps, then purchase a new RAM module

The server shutdown approxmatly every day


if the log says that the shutdown was unexpected, then I'd suspect a power outage at that time. If you're using a managed PDU, check to see if that outlet (or the whole pdu) is set to power cycle. If you have more then one power supply, I'd recommend plugging them into different pdu circuits. If you're pluged in to a UPS, suspect that the UPS is cycling and that there's no UPS management service running. If you're plugged into (yikes) the wall, suspect building power.

Need help on SuperMicro SuperServer 7043M-6!!


ok, all you have to do is reset CMOS. the same thing happened to me once I tried to install windows on my supermicro board. What you have to do is load the bootable CD that came with the board and follow the instructions in your book.

What happens is that windows does not have the drivers for the supermicro RAID and SATA components. The board will recognize these on it's own until you go to install windows improperly. Windows does not have the drivers for those, realizes it, and says "Windows has stopped to prevent damage" but it does it anyway. Just clear CMOS, read the book with the board on how to install an OS, and try again.

Clearing CMOS: This can be done by taking out the 3.5v watch battery you see on the board for about 5 minutes. Another and riskier way is to clear CMOS by shorting the pads. On a diagram of your board, you should see CMOS Clear. Find those two pads on you board in that general area from the diagram. You'll know you've found it because the board has CMOS Clear printed near them. Just touch them with a screwdriver for 5-10 seconds. CMOS should be clear and ready to start new.

WARNING! Be careful when clearing CMOS with the pads, if you stick the screwdriver in the wrong place, you could damage your board. Be sure to unplug your power supply before working on your machine (I'm sure you know this.) and be sure to get the correct drivers for windows this time! Oh, and rechange any settings you changed in CMOS since it has been reset to the factory defaults.

Superserver 6023-8r


if you have enough hd space and memory , just install ms virtual server / install server os , and you will be able to use as another server (virtual server).
you can connect to it by name / ip address etc., just like a real physical server.
good luck
