Question about Dell Computers & Internet

Server just stops!

With increasing frequency our server just stops. It has power, all the lights are on and show a 'good' status. However, everything is frozen, screen goes to 'sleep' and clients systems cannot access shares.

Dell has already replaced almost everything at least once under the warranty. On their request I wiped the disks and re-installed SBS2003 and recreated my user accounts and file shares from backup.

Any ideas?

Did you check to see if it is going into Hibernate mode in the power settings?

    Are all fans working? It sounds like the processor may be overheating. Maybe try to run some diagnostics on the fans to make sure they're spinning fast enough...

Server Randomly Reboots


First, go to Dell's website and update all the firmware and install the latest version of Dell Server Administrator. DSA has logs information not logged by Windows. Next, take it outside and blast the fans with compressed air, make sure all components and cables are properly seated in their slots/sockets, turn it on with the cover off and make sure all the fans are spinning. Many servers will increase the fan speed if they detect the cover is off so this is another possible cause to the problem.
Finally, Dell servers have lifetime support, this number should work: (800) 945-3355
Good luck!
BTW: A temporary workaround might be to use a network controlled outlet that you can remotely turn off and on. Your UPS might be able to turn outlets on and off or you could get a stand alone network controlled outlet. Some can actually ping the device and turn power off and on again if it stops replying to pings. (E.g. IP Power EV-9255 IP http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=9SIA1470N64280)

My Rimage 2000i will not begin production of cd burn/print. Says there are no production servers active on cluster


Hello B13Designs,


If you receive a "No Production Server Active" message when using QuickDisc, make sure that the Production Server status is set to Active, Processing orders in Rimage System Manager. Once the Production Server is set to this status, jobs can be processed.

1. Open Rimage System Manager.

2. Select Production Server. Production Server status information displays in the right panel, next to the Production Servericon.

3. If Production Server is paused or stopped, press the play button. Production Server starts.


If this does not fix your problem, feel free to give our support line a call @ 1-800-553-8312 (Option 2).

Thanks!

During bootup, the screen shows: 1. server raid-7k on board power-on self test takes up to 60 secones. after 60 seconds, displyed another line shows: status - not responding properly - error-code 2807


It means that your raid is not seeing its drives. Usually after a power failure.

Rebooting the server will fix it in the short term.

To fix it long term you need to update the servers firmware.

Boot from HP Diagnostic Media (SmartStart CD)and check the status of Array.....or harddrives...
If showing any failed status or not supported..
Replace drives to check if new drives show status...
It could be because of Drives not intialise for Array..

Boot to Array Configuration Utility...during bootup and go to Intialise disks....
Use them

Power light


Are you referring to to Power LED or the System Status Indicator cause what I can remember from that particular model Dell server thst system status indicator was blue! Use this page to help identify what exactly is showing up as orange(or amber)! http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/pe2600/en/sm/beep.htm#1057698 If it is the system status you'll need to go over the other indicators to troubleshoot what exactly is causing the problem! regards, babb
