Question about Dell PowerEdge 6300 Server

1 Answer

I need a Dell PE6300 Server Assistant CD

I need the PE6300 Server Assistant CD. I found drivers and software for W2K3-SP2 to run with the PERC 2/SC. I installed OMA 3.4 and LSI windows raid control. No level of Server Assistant I found on Dell recognizes the 6300. I would really like to install the Utility Partition and Diagnostics.

Good news, Dell has lifetime phone support for their servers.

Write down the Express Service Code and Service Tag number that is on the server chassis and call Dell.
This is the last number I used for server support: (800) 945-3355
If it doesn't work you should be able to find a valid number at support.dell.com

I hope this helps.

Controls perc 3 is beeping. Server runs fine. What should I do to correct drive if failing?


You should first look at the drives on the front of the server to see if there are any failure lights.

If not, then it may be a RAID battery that is indicating failure.

Either way, this is probably an LSI RAID controller. Even after you correct the issue, you may still have to use the RAID utility (megacli in Linux) to silence the alert.

LSI is quite inefficient about their RAID controller and how they handle the issues.

I am having a problem with my dell poweredge 1800, it beeping continuous


Assuming this is still an issue...old as it is...

You need to boot the server and press the correct prompt to enter the BIOS of your PERC RAID controller. There you need to manage your physical/logical volumes.

Chances are that either you had a drive failure or the metadata on your RAID volume (JBOD?) was corrupted. This is a common issue with these LSI-based PERC[5-6]i RAID controllers that Dell utilized.

I have Dell PowerEdge 2550 Server. I want to configure RAID, but I can't reach RAID MENU! I have DELL 2550 Server BOOT CD and Dell OpenMenage Server Assistant V7.2. All of them are running, but I...


RAID menu will either be CTRL-A (if you are using the onboard PERC 3/Di) or CTRL-M (if you are using an addin PERC 3/4). If you are not seeing either of these options, then you may not have it enabled in the BIOS. In the BIOS (F2), go to Integrated Devices and make sure that RAID is Enabled. In order to enable RAID, your server MUST have a RAID key, RAID memory DIMM (different from system memory), and a RAID battery.

Hard drive not detected. When i trying to install Win 2003 Server Std edition. It does not detect the hard drive.


you will need to download the RAID drivers from the Dell website
http://support.dell.com/support/downloads/download.aspx?c=us&cs=19&l=en&s=dhs&releaseid=R74082&SystemID=PWE_PNT_P3C_2450&os=WNT5&osl=en&deviceid=1374&devlib=0&typecnt=5&vercnt=7&formatcnt=2&fileid=126163 and load them onto a floppy drive.

Then when installing the server press F6 to install other drivers this will load the PEC drivers and W2k3 will then see your drives

Do not try to load the drivers from a USB as W2k3 is "preset" to only accept drivers from a floppy drive unlike WIndows server 2008

Hope this helps

Windows 2008 r2. cannot find SAS HDD during install. I have tried to use drivers from Delll official site. But it doesn't help.


What RAID controller are you using? Also, you must first configure RAID in CTRL-C (SAS 5/6) or CTRL-R (PERC 5/6) before even loading the driver will help.

I just managed to mess up my 1600 SC with Linux Mandrake. I want to change it from raid 5 to Win 7 and turn it into a JBOD. I can't get it to recognize the dvd player so the win disc won't fire up...ideas?...


Is there a RAID card Eg PERC installed? If so, did you use the hardware raid setup? Also, Why do you want to put Windows 7 on a Server? Have you thought about Windows Server 2003 or 2008?

Open her up and check all the connections and also the BIOS settings. Does the DVD drive appear in the BIOS detection screen? I would suggest tackling the DVD issue first! Maybe that you need to change the order that it boots so that the DVD drive is first.

I'm having some trouble with a dell poweredge 2650 I bought off eBay.


You are not too clear, however I'll take a guess ..

1) Booting from CD ... older CD drives fitted to PE26xx range do not recognize Windows 2003 bootable install CD's .. the TS-L462C (a laptop drive) should be compatible with the PE 2650 (I know it works in my 2600)

2) Installing the Operating System onto the PERC SCSI Array drives .. a total pain .. with older OS (Windows 2000) you can use the 4 x floppy disk set to install and hit (F6 ? as I recall) to tell it to 'load a 3rd party driver' ... get the PERC drivers from the Dell site.

Alternative = toss the useless Tape Drive and install a set of SATA drives in the same space (a 3 drive Hot Swap caddy eclosure will fit = Icy Box or StarTech) .. you will need a PCI RAID card (such as Si3124) since the M'Bd has nothing but a combined floppy/TapeDrive IDE interfafce.

3) Finally, be aware that this is a SERVER level box .. spare parts & Dell 'official' upgrades are going to cost you an arm & a leg = and don't even ask what the special 'ECC parity' Memory sticks cost :-)

Problem with scsi driver proliant ml 370 for NT4


Are you attempting to boot from the Windows CD?

If you are booting the server from a Windows installation disk and it is unable to detect the hard drive, this typically means the following things.
You need to provide the driver for the RAID controller of the server (this can vary, depending on the version of the ML370 e.g. G4/G5)
If it still cannot detect the hard drive after providing the driver for the RAID controller or if there is not a driver available for NT4, it may not support the controller.
In this case you can remove the RAID set by entering the RAID setup (could be LSI or adaptec). NOTE THIS WILL DESTROY ALL DATA ON THE DISKS THAT ARE A PART OF THIS RAID SET.

Server doesnt boot


First create a floppy disk with your RAID driver for W2K3 Server. Next boot the server with the W2K3 Server CD, and hit F6 when prompted, and S to add the specific driver for your RAID and using the floppy to get the driver installed.

Next boot to the recovery console of W2K3 Server. If it finds your hard disk, it will even ask for your Administrator's Password to continue. If this works, then you are probably home free.

Get to the command line of the W2K3 Server Repair console and perform some directory searches to see if the data is there and intact. You can also perform a CHKDSK from that console.

Once you have made sure your data is there and intact, type these two commands: FIXMBR and FIXBOOT

This should solve the problem and when you EXIT out of the console, it should reboot. Remove the CD and it "should" re-boot from the hard disk.

If you still have problems, let me know with how far you got with the steps above. I have another solution but need to know your RAID controller's model (ServeRAID 5i, 6i, etc).
