1 Answer

Poweredge 2600 We have a Dell powedge 2600 with 4 36gig drives (hot swap), and 2 empty bays for additional drives witha Server 2000 operating system. If we purchase an additional larger drive, can it be plugged into an empty slot and will it automatically configure, or will it require system configuration beyond that of Dell Array Manager?

Re: Poweredge 2600

A larger drive should auto-configure just fine keep in mind that you may not get access to the full drive depending on how you have it all setup. In any case if there are any problems with the auto-configure you should be able to easily go into the RAID manager and tell it what you want to do with the drive.

Sata driver download

Check your motherboard manufacturer's website. Sata drivers are not hard drive specific, they have to do with your motherboard. If your computer was pre built and you are simply upgrading it, check your pc manufacturer's website (Dell, HP etc.)

My server name is powerEdge2900 and SAS Hard Disk. My server have RAID(Mirror). I lost my password of my server. I want to break RAID.How can possible? please ans. me .........

What raid is it in? For example if your server is in a raid 5 you needto take out hard drives enough to only have 2 in place and then put 2 more in to make a total of four and get it to rebuild it.

Please advise that you are taking it at your own risk and that you seek my solution as your last one. Thanks

Microsoft Sharepoint records its usage logs in diagnostic files.

Each of these logs can be maintained and used through the Windows graphical user interface.

Deleting a log erases its records permanently from your hard drive, but in turn frees disk space that can be used for other purposes.

Open your Start menu and type "Sharepoint" in the search programs and files box.

Click "SharePoint Portal Server Central Administration" and press "Enter."

Click "Server Name" where "Server Name" is the name of your server, then click "Configure diagnostic settings."

Click "View Diagnostic Logs," then select the log you'd like to modify.

Click "Delete" on the toolbar, then click "Yes."

Your log is now deleted.

Hope this helps.

Hi tham01,

First off, if the server has raid already setup, you will need to go into lsi logic to format the drives so you can install XP. Once the drives have been initiated from the server bios, just place XP in the CDROM, and shouldn't have a problem loading on the 2600 POWEREDGE SERVER. If your trying to install it with the Dell quick install disk, you can't!!! Install it on it's own without the Dell Disk.

Good Luck!
