Question about HP NetServer LH3

1 Answer

I have an HP Netserver LH3 with 2 processors, 512MB memory, with WinServer 2003 on it. We use it as our domain server and storage of user files. For some reason after the last win update when I rebooted the domain seemed to be gone, after a couple more reboots a whole bunch of erros happen and after signing in I get some windows errror and no desktop. So I thought I would try and boot from Win2003 disk and do a repair but I cannot get it to boot from the CD-ROM it goes right to hard disk. Am I missing something with this server that it requires something special to boot from Cd-ROM?

SOURCE: Used HP Netservers

Of course they're still useful to someone. Sounds like i'd start with craigslist or ebay. Some of the servers will be heavy, so be sure to list that shipping from wherever you are to them is paid by the bidder. If you can, maybe you should try testing out the equipment to see if any of it works.

For example, Just the first entry sells new for 350, and used for about 175. You'll easily pick up 70-130 on ebay for these. In fact, I could use some of that equipment :-)

SOURCE: Disk I/O Error: Status = 00008001

Some simple things it could be...Check the screws on the mainboard holding it to the case. The mainboard uses these screws to ground the board and sometimes they can loosen up from heat & cold expansion over time. Also dust is conductive and if enough gathers on the board it can cause problems also. So use some compressed air on the mainboard to clear out the dust. And also a power supply going bad can cause problems like this. If you have another computer with a working power supply try swapping it out and see if that works. More info on the setup would be helpful.

I want to install windos 2003 server on dell poweredge 2600 but the server is very slow i want help


Hello,

I am not sure what you mean by "slow" so I will anwer in general terms. I would recommend 1st that you make sure the PowerEdge meets the recommended hardware specs for Windows Swerver 2003. (Memory, CPU speed, Hard drive capacity, etc.) 2nd- I would run two Xeon processors instead of one and add as much memory as you can put in your system.

I run MS Server 2003 on one of my servers and here is the configuration that I am using:
2 Xeon 2.8GHz processors
6GB ECC Memory
120GB hard drive for the server operating system (Nothing else is on this drive)
750GB hard drive for all other applications
External NAS storage for files, data, etc. (connected to my netword via Ethernet 5e)

With this setup, my server has been running very well for 6 years now. I do maintanance every week on it to keep it up to par. (Simple dusting, checking cables, etc.)

Good Luck.

How to Setup Microsoft Exchange Server


<p>Microsoft Exchange Server 2003 released on September 28, 2003. One of the new features in Exchange Server 2003 is enhanced disaster recovery which allows administrators to bring the server online more quickly. This is done by allowing the server to send and receive mail while the message stores are being recovered from backup. Now newly released version of Exchange server is Exchange 2010 after 2007 version. Exchange server 2010 officially released on 9th November 2009. But here I will discuss about Microsoft Exchange server 2003. In a workstation most of users are use Microsoft Exchange server as mail server.<br /> <p><span><span><b>Requirement of Exchange Server 2003:</b></span></span> <span> </span>Required OS for Exchange Server2003 is Microsoft Server 2oo3. There this Server should be a domain controller. For Exchange 2003 need some protocol like <br /> <p> <br /> <p><span><span><b><span> </span><span> </span></b></span></span>1&gt; asp.net<br /> <p><span> </span><span> </span>2&gt; SMTP<br /> <p><span> </span>3&gt;NMTP<br /> <p><span> </span><span> </span>4&gt;W.W.W<br /> <p> <br> <p>IIS should be install in server . In hardware system should have minimum 256MB of memory<br> <p><span><span><b>Installation of Exchange Server 2003: </b></SPAN></SPAN>There have three steps to install Microsoft Exchange Server 2003.<br> <p><span><span>1&gt;<span> </SPAN></SPAN></SPAN>Preparation of forest<br> <p><span><span>2&gt;<span> </SPAN></SPAN></SPAN>Preparation<span> </SPAN>of domain<br> <p><span><span>3&gt;<span> </SPAN></SPAN></SPAN>Installation<span> </SPAN>of Exchange Server<br> <p>To install Exchange Server you have to install the required protocol first. I have install the windows component such as IIS, ASP.NET, NNTP, W.W.W. from control panel with OS CD. Then I insert the Exchange Server Disk in CD rom drive and start the preparation of forest. I open the disk and run the forest prep from Exchange 2003 deployment tools. It will take several times to complete. After completing the forest prep I have run the Domain prep with the same procedure. The Domain prep will take also lots of time to complete. Then I have installed the exchange server by creating a new exchange organization. The total process also possible to complete from Run with command. The total job takes a huge time almost one hour or more. After installing Exchange Server I have configured it as per direction of the company. I have add users, groups, I create new administrative group. Following this process there I have done the whole job successfully. <br> <p><span></SPAN>

HP E800 PAVILLION WILL NOT POWER ON


Hi,
If there is not LED glowing in from of the servers, check the power cable is seated in properly. If that is also fine, the problem is with the power module itself. Get it replaced.
If there is LED dispaly and no BIOS screen coming up, Switch off the server and make sure the memory modules are seated properly in DIMM slots.and also the processor and HDD.
If still it didnt come up, better contact the vendor.
Please come back and vote for me if this turns to be helpful for you or also if you need more clarifications. Thnx

No video on boot up.


Use the other PCI slots. When using 3rd party Video cards, contact the video card vendor to ensure that they do not use "write combining" or "locked" cycles to video memory in their drivers. HP NetServer

After this u can log on to the pc with the network admin or the other created user names.

Domain\administrator has no local admin rights


You may need to edit group policy if this was once in a domain. You may want to try rebooting the machine and logging into the 'LOCAL' machine and see if you have rights that way. Each machine by default has one administrator account but if the server was part of a domain, that right may have been removed. You may need to reset OWNER privileges for all files in the machine.

NetServer LPr P3-750 won't boot


Well, what kind of memory are you trying to use? I did some research on the product itself and found out that it requires 100MHz registered ECC SDRAM! If you put in a different speed memory or non-ECC it more than likely won't work! If that's not the situation then get back to me! Regards, Babb
