Question about Dell PowerEdge 4600 Server
When I shutdown the system to reboot it takes almost thirty minutes for the system to power down. Any suggestions
In the SCSI configuration (firmware), ensure write caching is enabled. Ensure that it is only enabled WHEN SAFE.
Do NOT pull the power before it shuts down cleanly. At best, you'll have file corruption; at worst, you're facing a complete rebuild. I'm currently 36 hours into a recovery / repair /rebuild job of a domain controller that was running on one of these. Yicky. At least I've recovered all data (not bad on a RAID 5 array where the pratition info was toasted) but it cannot be repaired - at least they have a backup I can start with here.
