If you are using a mother board scsi raid on the Power Edge 1750 it should tell you in the start up what version 4D 4Sc extra

Hi there,
If the array creation process was successful but the operating system doesn't see the new drive, it's probably because the RAID hardware drivers aren't loaded. Check the Device Manager and see if there's unrecognized devices, and if so, try installing drivers for whatever particular RAID hardware's installed in your server. Try searching the dell site for PowerEdge 1750 RAID drivers.

I think you need to provide heaps more info, like what operating system etc.. Have you tried to change the interface to another port eg if IDE, then move the cable to the secondary or if sata test the drive with another cable/port.. Have you tested the drive in another computer? OK, if it's scsi, then does the drive need a termination? Most scsi drives need a dongle or a terminator to allow them to be recognised.

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.

PowerEdge 4200 RAID 5 - 2 out of 4 failed. Getting "Operating System Not found". Option replace 1 drive of the two that failed. Option 2 replace both drives. Option 3 send all 4 drives for...


Hi,
If two drives have failed out of a RAID 5 array, unfortunately i'm pretty sure that means that the array has degraded beyond its redundancy level.
Advanced data recovery may be able to help with getting your data back, but I wouldn't pin your hopes on it. Once two discs fail, the array becomes degraded, and the data is irrecoverable.
Did you manage to make a backup before the drive(s) died?

What hard drives can I use as replacements?


Call Dell with your Service Tag.
Lifetime support is included on all Dell servers.
Last time I called them I dialed (800) 945-3355
They can sell you the hardware you need and guarantee it will work with your server. They might even be able to help explain the process of installing the drives.

I recommend that you use Acronis' Imaging software (www.acronis.com) so that you can make an exact copy of your data and apply it to the replacement volumes. If you are using a RAID1 array make sure the new array is completely built before applying your image. Builds can take a long time. I created a RAID1 array with 2-320GB disks and it took 3.5 hours to build the RAID1 array.

I hope this helps.

Please vote for my solution if it helps.

Dell PowerEdge 1400SC Can not locate hard drives or partition


The controller (probably a RAID controller) that the drives are connected to is one for which Windows does not have the correct drivers. You need to supply the proper driver and .INF files during the initial load. The process used depends on the version of Windows you are installing.

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!

Dell poweredge 830 sever


You must figure out if there is a harddrive controller running the drives. If this is a striped array I suggest calling support. Pulling all drives and it gets through the POST process the board is fine. Do not swap HDD slots unless you suspect a backplane failure. Most modern controllers support drive roaming, but why chance it....(if you have a hotswap bp)
