Nic teaming on poweredge t300


NIC teaming is useless unless you have a switch that support teaming.
However, Dell servers have free lifetime phone support ((800) 945-3355).
They should be able to help.

What type of nic to add


Cannot be PCIe, as they are not supported - PCI or PCI-X. Check the slots, you may only be able to use 3.3/5V cards.

And as a sidenote ... the PowerEdge 2600 does not support x64 Operating Systems and does not support hardware-assisted virtualization (VT on Intel processors), so you will be limited on which VM solutions you can use.

Dell Power Edge 2600. It has an ERA nic but can't configure it?


The ERA is not like the more modern DRAC's ... it must be configured through the OS.

DELL DL-380 G5 "could not allocate page table memory" GSS 2.5


First of all, Dl380 is an hP product.
Secondly your ghost version seems a bit old as ghost 14 is the latest version. Having said that the problem could be at two ends.
1. At the ghost side where your version doesnot contain NIC drivers for PXE boot and HDD drivers for imaging. To fix this you can try manually adding the drivers to the network boot or floppy boot diskette.
You can get the drivers from HP website or the PSP CD that came with the server.

Alternatively you can upgrade to RDP instead of GHOST, RDP is Symantec's offering sold by HP for imaging it's servers.

2. There's some problem with your NIC settings or card if you are trying to PXE boot.
If you are using a floppy drive/ usb HDD, check from BIOS if it is detected.

Dell Precision 490 constant reboot after ghost image completed


Hello-

I figured out how to ghost a Dell Precision 490 with a 32 bit Windows XP Image! Like you I had the same problem where it would constantly reboot after I imaged it with an existing 490 image. The answer is actually very simple. Boot up your Precision 490 and hit F2 to enter the bios. Select Drives and then SATA Operation, change it to "Raid Autodetect / ATA". Reboot the 490 and re image the machine, it will now work!

Dell poweredge 1650 and norton ghost


okay, hate to answer my own question. Where I got confused was with the protocol.ini file that is used in Norton Ghost on a boot disk to load the network information, including the network protocol to be used (netbeui in this case) and what network card was to be used. Thus the last part of the protocol.ini file is where I needed to add the missing information. I needed to add the slot = required value to identify what one of two network cards in the dell PowerEdge 1650 was to be used to connect to the ghost server (in this case, the two cards were idenified by a number such as 0x0110 and 0x0120). The strange thing is that I also noticed that there is a third network port on the back of the server, but I am not sure if it is active or not, but nothing came of as of yet. But I am now happy to report that I can connect to the ghost server to image the machine I need to image.

Hi

The embedded NIC is Intel 82559 10/100 Ethernet controller. You may however install a Gigabit NIC as a PCI card.
