How to download smart start image for hp ProLiant ml150 G3


Search for "HP Smart Start" using Google. This was my first hit: http://h20564.www2.hpe.com/hpsc/swd/public/detail?swItemId=MTX_79a9d41ce8944c80ac14ad925e

That said, you should be able to configure RAID without the smart start CD. When the server starts up you will see a description of the RAID controller. Then you will see a point where you enter the configuration. It will be a key combination like CTRL+A or some other letter depending on the model of the RAID controller. It will enter the RAID controller setup where you can create or modify the RAID arrays or "virtual disks".

I hope this helps.

Recently I had replaced one of HDD of my DL580 service Raid 5 configuration. After that everything working fine including user connectivity and database access. My question is both the LEDs on replace


After you replaced the drive, did you rebuild the RAID array? Some of the higher end RAID controllers will try to rebuild automatically (if set to do so) but most must be rebuilt manually.

Server won't start HP ML350 G5


Reseat the drives, but DO NOT swap slots. Keep exact, in case of RAID configuration.

Use the Smartstart disc. It may show you the current array config.

Reconfugure raid 1


Not sure what the questions is, reconfiguring a mirrored raid is a destructive process so all info on the drives will be gone.
That said this is managed through the SCSI configuration which you can get into at boot usually by pressing one of the function keys when prompted at boot up.

regards,
Mike

Raid configuration


When your system boots up you should see an option to access your raid controller if not or if your system doesn't see the controller at all you will have to download the utility software from IBM, but you need to be careful any change you make in the configuration of the disks will delete all data on your drives. This is non-recoverable loss. The utility has help and is fairly easy to understand.

I have HP proliant DL160 server. How i will make RAID two HD?


Try going into the RBSU(Rom based setup utility) and configuring SATA RAID in the advanced section.

This doesn't work for all versions - if it doesn't help, please be more specific about your configuration, i.e. what "G" level is the server? Hot plug or non hot plug drive? etc.

Run Compaq Array Configuration Utility


Hi Foambob,

Try all means to get a smartstart CD.
Normally new version will be able to use on older hardware , but no guarantees.
I have always found it easier to use smartstart CD auto mode.
You can also do the install and then run ntssd to update all the drivers etc., but I don't recommend it for novices. Use the auto mode , it takes longer but safely and surely.

Good luck
