Dell Poweredge server 860 recently removed from domain and uninstalled software that was running on it. Wanted to make sure it did not have the same name as it did before when rebooted. So, changed the name & rebooted. Now when log in it does not accept password. So, how to get this machine to work again? Machine running Windows 2003 Server R2

    I tried that and it did not work. I also put in the CD to see if I could just recover via windows recover but the server wanted a floppy disk and I don't have one. Also, it wouldn't load windows since I didn't select the SCSI drivers. Any other ideas?

    Thanks

Hi,

Start system and when you see Windows Welcome screen / Login screen, press ctrl+alt and hit the del key twice and it'll show Classic Login box. Now type "Administrator" (without quotes) in Username and leave Password field blank. Now press Enter and you should be able to log in Windows.
Now you can reset your account password from "Control Panel -> User Accounts".

Please post back if need anymore advice or this does not work.

Good luck.

    Hi,

    Try this method >>>>>

    A. Boot using Windows XP Setup CD and follow the instruction like Accepting EULA, etc.

    B. When it asks to repair your existing Windows installation, accept it and press "R" to run the repair.

    C. Setup will start repairing your Windows and will start copying files, etc.

    D. After a few minutes setup will restart your
    system and when it restarts don't press any key when it shows "Press
    any key to continue..." otherwise Setup will start from the beginning.
    Don't press any key and setup will resume where it left.

    E. Now it'll start doing other tasks and will show a small progressbar with a few details in left side.

    F. Look carefully at the details and when it shows "Installing devices", press +F10 keys in your keyboard.

    G. It'll open a Command Prompt window. Now type nusrmgr.cpl and press .

    H. It'll open the same "User Accounts" window which you see in Control Panel.

    I. Now you can remove or reset any account password without any problem.

My dell poweredge 2600 wont load up


  1. Can you access the Bios configuration on boot by pressing F2? Check the setting
  2. By load up do you mean your server software does not boot? use F10 on post from the utility partition main menu under Run System Utilities.
  3. Is the server working with RAID? Press CTRL + R and check the RAID
I am not going to say check all the cables because I am sure you will have already?!?

How to create domain controller


Hello,

By using the os (Windows Server, UNIX, etc) it will ask during setup if you want to make this a domain controller. Remember, networks can only 1 primary domain controller (PDC) but many backup domain controllers (BDC) choose correctly as well....BDC can be promoted to PDC. PDC have to have a reinstall.

Good Luck

Dell poweredge 2600 server recently display a message " No boot device available Press F1 to reboot or F2 to setup" Please why?


Did you experience a power event? Go to BIOS (F2), and make sure that RAID is Enabled. If RAID got turned off (power event, BIOS reset), then it will give you that message. If RAID is already enabled, then you may need to repair your operating system. If something else happened (drive failures, drives removed, etc.), then the array may be completely gone. Call Data Recovery services if it is critical you retreive the data.

Can I Connect both Poweredge 860 NICs to the same switch? It seems like they are setup to be redundant.


Hello,

Yes, you can connect both NICs to the same switch. They each will have a unique IP address but will speed up your connection.

Drive Options with a Dell Poweredge 2600


I would definitively not recommend to remove the backplates, unless you want to ask for serious trouble with your system.

I would install a PCI SATA adapter card (one like these) and connect your SATA drives to it.

Problem in reboot the server in domain


This sounds like a common DNS issue. You need to make sure that this server has a local DNS server like 192.168.1.1 and not an external one like 4.2.2.2.

Your server is trying to find the domain controller and with the external DNS it cannot. This is why when you remove the cable it loads correctly. it assumes that it is disconnected from the local network and it continues without the domain controller. otherwise it waits for the external dns to time out.

Dell PowerEdge 1600sc server is running


What operating system is the server using? What roles is the server doing (DNS/DHCP/DC/Exchange/etc). If it's a Windows 2003 SBS box, you're supposed to be able to run upto about 75 users. I would never run more than 30 users on an SBS box (and it'd have to be a very high spec). You may consdier bringing another server to do an aditional role (file/print) and leave the primary to be an SBS box

Dell PowerEdge 1600SC Server occasionally beeps when running


Check out this site:

http://bioscentral.com/postcodes/dellbios.htm

Write down the exact number of beeps and how long they last to find what the error means. The are call BIOS post codes and they resemble Morse Code. (ie. one long, 3 short, 2 long = RAM issue) Good luck!!
