SOURCE: I'm having some trouble with

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 :-)

SOURCE: Dell Poweredge 2650 - How do I disable RAC

If this is a security concern then there is nothing to be concerned about so long as you do not plug a network cable into the RAC.

Otherwise, if it is an add-in card just remove it.

If you can't remove it there should be a way of accessing it when the server starts up. You should be able to go into the configuration and disable its functions.

I hope this helps.

SOURCE: Problem with the Dell PowerEdge 2650 Server Can't

you need an extra cd, called dell server assistant. you can download id from dell, or download as a torrent file. there is a menu that says install server 2003, server 2003 x64, windows 2000,or install linux.
choose your option and follow the menu, and your server is ready to use.
you also need the installation cd of server 2003 or any thing that is on the menu.

Hello,

There could be many things that could cause your halt problem. From my experiencew ith servers the first thing I would do is try resetting your BIOS setting to default. Also, reset the jumpers to clear out the CMOS and retry your install.

Keep us posted. Good Luck

How to install hyper v on dell 2650. Can Windows 2008 with hyper v be installed on a Dell 2650?


Hello,

Yes, Server 2008 will install on the 2650 as long as you make sure you have enough RAM and hard drive space. Once you have Server 08 installed, you will have a to-do list to help with setting up hyper-v.

Good Luck

How to transfer OS and data to newer Poweredge server


The new RAID controller should read the data from the drives and work without difficulty. You will need to transfer all drives at the same time. Be sure to put the drives in the same spot in the new server.

Here are the bad news parts:

1. Your data is at risk. Make sure you do a good backup before trying this.

2. It is far more likely that your performance problems come from disk access or memory than the actual processor. If this is the case, then you probably won't be helping yourself with the migration. If you haven't already done so, analyze what is causing your performance bottleneck to make sure you are going in the right direction.

I have a working Dell Poweredge 2650 with 2 x Xeon 1.8Gig processors, 5 x 36GB hard disks, running Windows 2003 Server. I have recently purchased a newer Poweredge 2650 with the same configuration except...


You should be able to do this by moving the drives all at once ALL DRIVES MUST BE PLACED IN THE SAME SLOTS 0,1,2,3,4, do not mismatch else it will be a nightmare ............HOWEVER BACKUP your data up if you are going this route,on paper it might sound like a winner,however not all that glitters is gold.controllers though they might be the same have different firmware which allow them to do different things,so if you are going to this the os drive raid 0 or 1 must be two seperate is drives.once this done,how is your raid set up for the other drives once you have a good back up to restore if there is any complication,move the over in the same order,remember POWER DOWN BEFORE YOU ATTEMPT THIS .PS REBUILDING TAKES FOREVER.
GOOD LUCK
