You don't actually install SmartStart. You boot from the SmartSmart CD and then based on the menu selections you make, it will configure RAID and install the appropriate drivers to prep the system for the OS of your choice. After this, it will initiate the installation of the OS.

Since your server is a G4, the CDs you have are probably very out of date. I would recommend downloading the latest SmartStart from hp.com before proceeding.

If you already have an OS on your DL380 and are trying to update the drivers you are looking for the Proliant Support Pack, not SmartStart. This can also be downloaded from hp.com - the exact directions for installation vary by OS but are included with the download.

How to download smart start image for hp ProLiant ml150 G3


Search for "HP Smart Start" using Google. This was my first hit: http://h20564.www2.hpe.com/hpsc/swd/public/detail?swItemId=MTX_79a9d41ce8944c80ac14ad925e

That said, you should be able to configure RAID without the smart start CD. When the server starts up you will see a description of the RAID controller. Then you will see a point where you enter the configuration. It will be a key combination like CTRL+A or some other letter depending on the model of the RAID controller. It will enter the RAID controller setup where you can create or modify the RAID arrays or "virtual disks".

I hope this helps.

Hp proliant ml370 G6 ethernet controller, base system device and IPMI interface not configured properly


Correct it or disable it. It's just a warning. Check SNMP setting for traps.

Besides you should be using the Smart Start with Insight Manager on HP servers.

I need to install windows server 2003 (standard edition) on a HP Proliant ML110 G4 server but I do not have the easy setup CD (smart start CD) and it would not have me install directly from the OS...


here is the download link for the easy set up cd, this is for the ml110 g5, however it is backward compatible so it should work in the ml110 g4

I can´t use a serial ata disk in a proliant 350


I know ATA disks are cheaper , but they don't last as long or are less reliable.

I do not recommend mixing SCSI and ATA .

Use one or the other , not both.

Do not try , unless your server is non critical.
If it is non critical , why bother with server , a PC will do as well.

Thanks
