Question about Compaq AlphaServer DS10

ALPHA SERVER DS10 with OPEN VMS 7.3

The server is not booting up. Currently when we start up:

1. it beeps 6 times.
2. the hard drive light remains on.
3. the fan light remains on.
3. it cuts off on its own.

Initially only #1 above was occurring. Then #1 and #2 started occurring. Then #1 to #3 started occuring. Now #1 to #4 is occurring.

Any information on the cause and the solution would be appreciated.

Thanking you in advance
S.S.

    If replacing memory does not help, try to replace PSU.

DS10 - Six beeps indicates that a checksum error has occurred after the ROM image was copied into memory. Probably either memory is misconfigured or a memory DIMM needs to be reseatedor replaced.

Hoow do you open gateway MX6440. No audio. Bootup


Typically, a computer tries to "boot" from several devices:
1. 3.5-inch diskette
2. internal CD-ROM
3. internal disk-drive
4. USB memory-stick
5. network (if a "boot-server" can be found on the network)
6. external diskette
7. external CD-ROM
8. external disk-drive

So, in your case, either

* the "boot-order" _EXCLUDES_ your disk-drive,
* your disk-drive is not connected,
* your disk-drive is connected, but is "dead" (not responding)

Not being able to boot from the disk-drive, your computer probes, via the network, for a "boot-server". Finding none, your computer reports, in a strange way, that "network cable is not connected to a boot-server".

So, the "check cable" means that the Ethernet cable between the network-port on your computer and the boot-server may be "unconnected".

What this could mean is that your disk-drive is "dead".
Take the computer to a qualified technician, for more trouble-shooting.

Windows Server trying to boot from external hard drive


go into your 'update settings'. there is a section of where it asks you about how you want your settings set and where to send updates to. You may find the problem here. Check all the 'advanced' settings as well. If your Western digital is plugged in via USB and not requiring updates, unplug it while starting your system, after complete start up, reinsert the USB plug. It may show new devise found, then from here, you may be asked to reinstall it to stop the rebooting.

I have a COMPAQ 1000 Alpha computer running OPENVMS 7.2 and recently the system has not been able to access the hard drive. I am able to see the device intermittently but it fails after a short period of...


You have not provided much to go on here. Is the system up and running or do you have only a single drive? You should be able to do a "SHO ERR" and see any errors logged to the errlog that will indicate the hardware issue. Using "anal/err" or Clue, you should get the error details. Please post what you find here and I'll provide suggestions.

Help with server boot problems flashing orange lights etc


Seems the RAID is broken. You may see which drive (hot swappable?) it showing an error code with its lights in front. If not, I would suggest re-seated all drives.
If you see one that is not right, remove it all the way, while it is on, then push it back in, it should try to rebuild the raid on the drive, if it still fails, you will need to replace the drive.

Not sure what RAID you are using or how many drives, so feel free to explain more.

DS10 with SBS PCI Expansion


Version 7.1-2 is an older version of the OS. I will have to check, but I think that V7.2 will resolve this. What version of TCP/IP are you using? Back in the day when I supported TCP and VMS, there were some timing issues that causes odd behavior. If you can provide the details about your configuration, I can check and get back to you. If necessary, an examination of a forced crashdump may be needed.

A rare opportunity to work with VMS again!!

Good stuff.
