I have a IBM X3400 Server. Linux is install in this server .when I install a new hard disk in this server its not showing the space. And yellow Error light is glowing .What I can do?

remove the leads from the hard disc and switch on the server.
Then switch off and reconnect the leads.Your pc server should recognise the hard disc.IF it doesn't it means your driver is corrupted.reinstall the driver.go to windows update and dowload and install new updates.If this fails go to the manufacturers website and download the driver for your server model number.Get help from your manufacturer.

Before Linux will show the new drive you have to mount the Drive so it knows what it is looking at. This should resolve the warning light issue as well. Unlike Windows most Linux Operating systems do not automatically recognize installed devices until they are mounted.

How to install windows server2003in ibm server x3400

The install is fairly easy. Before you begin make sure if you have SCSI adaptors installed have the drivers for them on hand. If you do not have these drivers you should download them to a 1.4MB floppy disk. When you are ready, put the Windows Server disk in the cd/dvd and reboot the IBM. Follow the instructions on screen and you shoud be fine. From start to finish it should take you about 1 1/2 hours to complete everything.

Good Luck
