I want to install windos 2003 server on dell poweredge 2600 but the server is very slow i want help


Hello,

I am not sure what you mean by "slow" so I will anwer in general terms. I would recommend 1st that you make sure the PowerEdge meets the recommended hardware specs for Windows Swerver 2003. (Memory, CPU speed, Hard drive capacity, etc.) 2nd- I would run two Xeon processors instead of one and add as much memory as you can put in your system.

I run MS Server 2003 on one of my servers and here is the configuration that I am using:
2 Xeon 2.8GHz processors
6GB ECC Memory
120GB hard drive for the server operating system (Nothing else is on this drive)
750GB hard drive for all other applications
External NAS storage for files, data, etc. (connected to my netword via Ethernet 5e)

With this setup, my server has been running very well for 6 years now. I do maintanance every week on it to keep it up to par. (Simple dusting, checking cables, etc.)

Good Luck.

Hard disk not found message coming while installing windows server 2003 on HP Proliant ML150 G5 server system.pls help me


1
Save any critical or important files. Even if this is an secondary hard drive installation.
2
Turn off the power and unplug the PC from the outlet. Also, unplug all external connections to the Windows PC. Be sure to touch something metal to ground the user. Static electrical shocks can damage a PC.
3
Open the PC housing and determine the placement of the hard drive. Generally computers come with a latch that, when pressed, opens the housing. Make certain the space necessary for the hard drive is available. Usually the drive bays are in the front of the PC near the CD or DVD drives.
4
Make sure the IDE jumpers are set correctly. If the hard drive is the primary drive then set the jumpers to "Master" mode. If the hard drive is the secondary drive then set the jumpers to "Slave" mode. Please consult the hard drive's manual for the proper jumper setting for each mode. Another possibility--if there are two hard drive, set both drives to "Cable select" mode and the Windows PC will choose which one to make "Master" and "Slave."
5
Mount the hard drive in the available internal slot. The drive is sometimes mounted with four screws to the drive bay. Some internal drives have a rail that slides into the open bay. Look at the other devices to determine which mounting option is available in the specific computer.

6
Connect the hard drive cables to the Windows PC. Connect the power supply connector to the available cable. Next, connect the data cable to the available connector. The internal data cable usually has a red stripe to make identification easier.

7
Close the housing and reconnect the external power supply. Plug the external cables back into the computer and reconnect to the power supply.
8
Configure the BIOS. The BIOS (Basic Input/Output System) is accessible during computer start-up. To access the BIOS consult the computer manual to find out with which key press during start-up. Most often, the key is F8. Once in the BIOS change the hard drive setting to "Auto detect." When finished, exit the BIOS and allow the start-up to continue.
9
Format and partition the Windows PC hard drive. Select "Start" from the operating system menu. Choose "Control panel" from the start menu. Next click on "Administrative tools". From the administrative tools menu choose the "Computer management" icon and finally "Disk management." Choose the new hard drive and right click. Select "New partition" from the right click menu. Follow the on-screen option to partition and format the drive the drive.
10
Restart the computer and check the hard drive to ensure it is operating properly.

I have IBM System x3400 server and when im installing the OS it is saying “SETUP DID NOT FOUND ANY HARD DRIVES”


Hello,

Check your BIOS setting first to make sure the system is registering all devices attached. If you do not see the hard drive in the BIOS, check the cable connections and reboot the system. Once the BIOS 'see' the hard drive, you should be able to install any os that support your hardware configuration.

Good Luck

Server XSeries 220


Yes, that is the total amount of hard drive space.
This server was built for speed not for storage.

The xSeries 220 server supports four SCSI hard disk drives. The server does not support IDE hard disk drives. Some models support hot-swap hard disk drives and other models support only non-hot-swap hard disk
drives.
Your server supports four 1-inch (26 mm) slim, 3.5-inch SCSI hard disk drives in the hard disk drive bays. You can install four non-hot-swap hard
disk drives in the models that have the standard non-hot-swap drive cage. You can install three hot-swap hard disk drives and one on-hot-swap hard disk drive in the models that come with the hot-swap drive cage. Both the non-hot-swap and hot-swap drive cages hold a maximum of three hard disk drives.

The calculation at that time was 4 drives with 36.7GB storage.
Even if you find the drives somewhere, they will be very pricy.

If you have any more questions, just come back here and leave a comment - I'm happy to help.

SCO UNIX ON CAMPAQ ML370 WILL NOT INITIALIZE. AFTER THE SMART ARRAY INITIALIZES, IT INDICATES I NEED TO REPLACE ONE OF MY RAID DRIVES. I HAVE TRIED REPLACING THE DRIVE AND IT WILL NOT MOVE PAST THIS POINT.


Typically, you need to do more than just physically replace the drive.

You need to go into your RAID settings during the POST. Make sure the controller recognizes the drive and add it to the array.

Hi

The error message you are receiving "Inquiry command failed Using IBM-PC ServerRaid Host adapter" makes me think you are attaching the tape drive to the ServerRaid Controller, which is only for Hard Disks. There should be a normal SCSI interface for attaching tape drives, etc. It's possible that the ServerRaid card is a PCI (or older) plug in card, and the normal SCSI interface will be on the main motherboard. If you look on the IBM website for the Hardware Maintenance Manual, it should hopefully make things clearer.

The reason you may not be seeing the hard drives in CMOS, is because you will need to use the IBM ServerRaid Utility to view and configure the disks.

Getting drive array problem


Even the 1st generation will have a ROM based Hard Drive Array utility which you will need to make yourself familiar with. Find out the hard ware you are dealing with, make sure it is functioning properly, and work your way to the software configuration.

Restarting


Check below things:
1) Check Primary DNS server ip in TCP IP Configuration
2) Stop Unwanted services from start up
3) Run Chkdsk /R command from command prompt and restart the server. It will check your harddrive and recover data.
