How can i add some new music

Typically you insert a music CD disk and the unit will rip the disk into its music directory. This procedure uses Gracenote to populate the MySQL database with information about the album and each song. My current experiance is that the Gracenote interface code in the SMS3 is no longer suported by the current Gracenote network portal so the SMS database is not properly populated.

Unfortunetly the MySQL database schema is not simple to modify, having several tables and associated indicies. Try to connect from your browser to the IP address of the SMS3. You may have options there to add music to the import folder which will populate the music database sans the Gracenote info.

With no support from Russound to go further you will need to change the root password to one your own by attaching the SMS3 hard drive to a Linux computer. While you are doing that I suggest you (dd) a copy of the SMS disk for later use in case of disk failure. You can use this copy later to mank a duplicate disk for the SMS3. This is not trival and you will need help from a Linux or Unix System 5 tech to really do much on the server side. That said it is just a Red Hat Linux distro with some really great script software running the media server. Russound did custom the boot ROM on the VIA MOBO but that was just to get the splash screen and a video trick to work (just guessing about the video).

In IBM system X3550 M3 server pxe e61 media test failure check cable error is coming and when i mam trying to install OS Partition will not show. pls give me solution.

This sounds like you are asking two different questions. PXE booting would be the way you would begin installing or loading an operating system. "Media test failure" errors would indicate a lack of network connectivity on the network interface that you're trying to PXE boot from.

You go on to mention an OS partition not showing... So did you resolve the PXE media test failure issue?

Your question is unclear and unanswerable in it's current state. BE CLEAR, CONCISE AND SPECIFIC.

Non system disk or disk error' 'replace and strike any key when ready' 'Media test failure Check cable' When l performed the Boot Utility test it returned an error message 'f

Sounds like a disk issue. It kind find the OS so it's then trying to PXE boot (boot from the network). Have you changed the boot order recently? or do you have a USB key connected to your server? are you able to connect to the management interface (hp ilo, dell drac) to see if you had any raid or other hardware issues?

My sms3 switches on and shows a red power led. However it does not show up on the control keypads or computer and will not play. Also th cd tray won't open.

This unit is effectively a Red Hat Linux server based on a Via Custom Motherboard. You description is consistent with a unit that does not boot. This can be caused by a number of problems that need to be diagnosed a bit further. Installation of a computer display on the VGA connector will allow you to watch some of the boot process. This may help the informed observer but it will not be obvious to a non computer service tech. Pressing the F1 key may provide more information during the boot but again that may be only useful to the service tech.

Problems to suspect but not a complete list.

Motherboard issues (known that Russound Motherboards by VIA used capacitors that were faulty)
Hard drive has failed, usually need to replace disk (easy) with dd(ed) image of original system (hard).
Portion of the power supply has failed. (red light may be just from 5 volt but 12 volt is gone)

How do i boot a compaq proliant dl380 with a usb drive set up for booting?


Make sure you have turned on the USB Boot in the BIOS of the os. Once this is done, select the order you would like for the server to locate boot files. (Hard Drive, USB, CD/DVD, etc.) Once complete, insert the USB and reboot the server.

Good Luck

One of the disks in not readable and while booting i get a message of pci.sys file missing or corrupted and i cannot start the system

expand the missing/corrupt file from i386 on your installation media to the system32 directory on the server using the bootable OS CD, select the recovery console option, not the repair OS option.
