This needs to be reconfigured again. My suggestion is to call DELL again so that things happen they can still able to do the replacement of the hard drive.

IBM Server not detecting hard drives


You know i find this all very suspicious. For one thing a ups is designed to take the hit so it will get fried and your computer will be fine. Suspicious to me but not an answer to your question so i will try this. The new raid card was installed (might be off on this part, haven't kept up with this) were the hard drives and the raid assembly matched back up. IE raid 1, 2, 3 etc. Do believe they are up to raid 7 now. So if hard drives were not put back in the original position and and raid card setup for the original raid array you might have this problem. Hope this helps, but it's been a long time since i worked with raid arrays.

WONT RECOGNIZE ADDED DRIVES ADDED 2 ADDITIONAL 146


If they are SCSI drives, you must enter the SCSI configuration software during a powerup and initialize the drives. From there, you can add them to a drive array or create a new array.

Need to increase the hdd size in a dell poweredge 1600sc with raid 1


You will not be able to increase the hdd size of a raid array, it's size is set. If you need more storage, you can add additional drives ( either in raid or standalone ) and use the new drive(s) for storage, but the original array will remain unchanged. The other option is to back up all of your data, install new drives and create a new array.

NO HARD DISK FOUND DELL POWERDGE 1600SC


Is the HD SAS/SCSI/SATA on a raid controller?

If so you need to enter the RAID config (not the bios, but there will be a RAID config option during the boot process CTRL+M I believe.. but it will say on screen.) Then you need to set up the raid config, then initialise, then the drive will be detected for loading the OS.

Either that or the drive(s) shafted.

What sort of disks are you using?

The Dell 2950 Server we have cannot reboot the disc drives


The raid may be fine you need to reinstall the OS.
The best way is to drop the raid array astablish a new raid array then install you new OS on a new raid array.Very nice server you have.

CAn I disable RAID on a DEll powervault 770n server


Its called the JBOD RAID option - just a bunch of discs.

I don't know of any system that makes a RAID array an operational imperative, I would say the answer to your question is yes.

RTFM.

Our 1600sc dell server is beeping continuosly.


Check the PowerEdge Raid Controller for parity problems. Sounds like the status on the physical volumes participating in a RAID array has been degraded.

Loud beeping from a drive is usually an indication that an invalid drive array member has resulted in a degraded logical volume.

If you were counting correctly, you had at least three drives - most likely participating in a RAID-5 setup. The array might have been rebuilt with one bad drive. But it sounds like you've got two corrupt physical volumes in the array. And that's not good.

Hope you've got a backup!

Raid failure


Not a lot of details, but here is some basic information, assuming you have a Dell with Integrated RAID

Dimension 9150/9200 and XPS systems have RAID, depending on the model the exact troubleshooting differs. At boot, after the Dell screen, you should get the RAID status listing. RAID 0 will either be normal or failed. Raid 1 can be normal, degraded for failed.

If the RAID array was RAID 0 and one of the drives failed, then all data is lost and you'll have to create a new array then reinstall Windows and drivers

If the RAID array was RAID 1, then you may need to add the new drive to the Array, CNTL+I or CNTL+N at boot (Depending on the system model) add the new drive to the array and reboot. If the system still will not boot to Windows, then you may have a software error too with the OS.

If during troubleshooting, the array was broken in the RAID BIOS, then the array will need to be recreated and Windows/Drivers reinstalled.
