Complete backup of Dell PowerEdge 830

I just need to know how to make a complete backup for m PowerEdge 830. The server is on it's last leg and needs to be replaced. It currently runs Microsoft Server 2008. I have a "My Passport" by Western Digital to back up my files. It acts like it is working but when I try to pull it up on another computer, it denies access. What am I doing wrong?

Make sure to 'take ownership' of all files with your Windows 2008 account before transferring. (or your AD account if you guys use AD) note: you can only do this with an adminstrator account. Take Ownership of File or Folder

Sounds like you're running Windows Server 2003 and want to run a backup utility.

Fortunately, this OS ships with a built-in backup utility called we call "ntbackup."

You can launch this program from Start -> Run, or you can find it in Start -> Accessories -> System Tools -> Backup.

SOURCE: what audio driver to i need for my dell poweredge

dell poweredge servers are not needed for sound. DELL support will not support any sound cards or care anything about your audio issues. You will not find audio drivers because again, a server's purpose has nothing to do with audio.

SOURCE: On a Dell Poweredge 830 server C: drive is full

first I would try a "disk cleanup" to remove any un-necessary files and to compress old files. this should provide more free space. if you still need more space you can just drag and drop files from the c drive to the f drive, just make sure you don't get any system files or anything under the "program files" directory. to perform a disk cleanup double click on the "my computer" icon on your desktop, right click on the c drive and go to properties. you will see the "disk cleanup" button on the bottom of the general tab. click on that and follow the instructions to do the disk cleanup.

Does anyone have the diagnostic code key manual corresponding to the A/B/C/D lights on my server tower? I can't find it anywhere online.


What Dell system do you have? The OptiPlex light diagnostics are given here: http://www.dell.com/support/article/us/en/19/SLN284978/en . Prior to 2005, they used the ABCD labels. This site, http://www.pctechbytes.com/dell/dell-diagnostic-lights/ , has some of the common codes. As far as I know, the Poweredge 830 didn't use these diagnostic lights.

Later, Dell switched to numerically labeled lights. For the T3610 and similar workstations, the lighting codes are given here: http://www.dell.com/support/article/us/en/04/SLN288973/en?c=us&l=en&s=bsd&cs=04 . For the R200, see http://www.dell.com/support/article/us/en/04/SLN293264/ . Scroll to the last section.

I hope these help. Otherwise, please post a comment your server model and the light combination that you are seeing. I may be able to assist you with the error code.

Need to reset the password on a Poweredge 4400 server.


You would need to use an admin account, local or network. I can be done via Active Directory or by anybody else that can Manage it via network.

The other option is to use a third party util like Hiren's Boot CD. Lastly is to format. gl

Dell poweredge 830 cd-rom unknown bios


Enter the set up (BIOS) menu by tapping the F2 key. Hold down the <Alt> key and depress the <E> then the <F> keys in succession. This will force the motherboard to load default settings and also force the motherboard to redetect all IDE devices. Note: The selection for the floppy drive will be set to ON. If you do not have one then you must disable floppy in set up (BIOS) menu.

Dell poweredge 2300


Servers usually don't come with sound cards. If you really need one, you must install one. If it is truly a server, I would recommend against it.
