Following arrays have missing required members and cnnot be configured: Array#1-RAID-0

RAID 0 will fail with a single drive loss. So if you lost a drive, you lost the array, and most likely your datas. It should never be used in a production environment, because it can not be rebuilt.

I have a Compaq Proliant ml370 G3 with an HP smart array 641 controller that I am trying to load SCO open server 5.0.6 on. This is tied to three drives in a RAID 5 config. When I try to run the Smartstart...

SSCD is not supported for the installation of SCO 5,6,7 or 8 you may need to create the arrays using ORCA at the bios of the 641 controller at post and then install SCO directlly from the installation cd.
To access ORCA press F8 or F9 when the smart array controller is posted at the bios screen

POST errors forcing server to crash

Its best you log a case with HP support. If your system is still under warranty or if you bought support along with the system, they will fix the problem for you.

System Fault indicator light on in a Gateway 975 Rackmount Server

If it is on steady and green, the server is operating normally.
If it is on steady and orange, the server is "in a critical or unrecoverable condition"

This is according ro the manual located at

If it is orange, for further diagnostics, you should see POST error codes, or hear relevant audible beep-code patterns, which can be interpreted by checking the tables in the PDF Server manual linked above. (Pages 125 and 128 respectively.)

If it's green, of course, you dont have a problem.

SCSI Devices not detected when posting ML530 Server.....


To get to the BIOS for your server, press F10 at start-up. This should get you there to verify if settings are detecting SCSI devices. If they are there, you may have to reinstall the SCSI controller drivers. Good Luck.

Run Compaq Array Configuration Utility

Hi Foambob,

Try all means to get a smartstart CD.
Normally new version will be able to use on older hardware , but no guarantees.
I have always found it easier to use smartstart CD auto mode.
You can also do the install and then run ntssd to update all the drivers etc., but I don't recommend it for novices. Use the auto mode , it takes longer but safely and surely.

Good luck

Drive array problem

Hi Nick ,

As of now you can Select "F2" to accept data loss and re-enable logical drive. This Load OS Normally .
It seems that one of the HDD in the RAID 5 has failed , Did you notice any LED indications like red or amber on the HDDs ?? if so get that hdd replaced . Make sure the Failed HDD is replaced .
You can run the Array Diagnostic Utility from HP System tools to check the Failed Drives and also frimware version of the controller . If the frimware is not latest Update it from HP website. DL380 G4 should have Smart Array 6i controller .

Hope This was Helpful
cheers :)
