Hi, within the previous 12hrs my e-series server bombed out - there are two issues (1) Memory DIMM malfunction (2) serveRAID-7k error 2807... I removed the faulty memory DIMMs, but the RAID error still...


You can recover RAID data from hard drive with RAID recovery software easily.
Tenorshare Data Recovery Enterprise is a comprehensive data recovery software that supports RAID recovery for RAID 0 and RAID 5. Lost data in RAID 0 and RAID 5 can be deeply scanned and restored immediately. Meanwhile, files and folders in RAID 0 and RAID 5 can be copied to other partitions directly. http://www.any-data-recovery.com/product/datarecoveryenterprise.htm

Not regonizing local drives or any drives


One bad lead can cause a computer to continue on a cycle or to shutdown or fail to detect/ boot up a computer hard drive

Test all leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions,IDE,SATA

the leads from your ((motherboard to your hard drive)) make sure they have a secure connection and are not faulty or just replace them there probably old and faulty
make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd 3 1/2 inch floppy have secure connections and are not faulty even the electrical extensions or just replace them they are probably old and faulty a computer needs its connections to have an end so any faulty leads will end up with a computer error
hope this helps

Can a raid5 be expanded to include an additional disk on the dac960prl or must the raid be destroyed and re-created?


Hi,

As a rule of thumb, a raid 5 array can be expanded to include additional drives. This is done during the boot process and then going into your RAID controller setup. You would then go into the RAID configuration and add the new drive to the array. This was the simplified explanation but i think you get the idea.

Things to consider,
DO NOT remove the RAID array unless you dont care about losing data.
DO NOT try to add a smaller drive than what is currently part of the array.
When possible, the new drive should be identical to the existing drives, but I have added same size, same speed more than once and it will work.
All of the drives you want as part of the array must be on the same controller.

Hope this helps,
Brian

1 logical harddisk degraded, RAID Poweredge


Revert back to original configuration of hdd in your RAID setup. Boot to SCIS BIOS and double check functionality of hard drives. The error is probably telling you that Disk1 is degraded because disk 0 is failing and you removed the wrong hard drive.

Pci ide controller for third hard disk


You need to enter into scsi bios first, then do an autodetect for hard drive, this will set the IDE/SCSI hard drive on raid controller.

To enter SCSI control you need to press the same key stated on screen on startup (F6 I assume) I think F3 is just boot settings.

If the card do not enter regularly in CMOS settings for the raid then this card is defective.

Promise FastTrak TX2300


You will need to download the drivers on to a floppy disk. When loading setup press F6 when it asks if you want to use third-party RAID controller.

You can get the drivers from the below link

SCSI BIOS not installed / ML150G2, exchanged mainboard, RAID


hi..
my guess is no but since i haven't dealt with this type of server i'm going to suggest you go to hp.
if you just goto hp.com and search on live chat and a link will come up.. they should be able to help unless it's too old since i'm not sure what generation we are on now..

good luck, hope this helps a little..d
