Cannot boot from usb. dell serverPoweredge 2650


Try entering the BIOS (usually by hitting F2 or Delete during the boot up sequence) and looking under the boot menu for the USB drive. Some older systems cannot boot from USB. You might have improperly formatted the USB drive. What are you trying to boot into?

Unfortunately, the 2650 cannot boot to USB devices. Try PXE if installing an OS.

I have one bad usb port


If you need multiple USB ports, go onto ebay and find a 3.3v PCI usb card. The large PCIX slots in the server are PCI compatible and will accept a 3.3v pci card. (It just doesnt fill the entire socket), or you will notice to the bottom of the mainboard there is ONE 5v pci slot, you can get a 5v PCI USB cotroller and stick it in there.

Either way, you have more USB sockets. As the mainboard ones are built in, if its broken, you either need to get a new mainboard (not cheap), or get a cheap PCI USB card.

(Note if using ESX, ESX 3.5 and below do not recognise USB ports anyway).

I have one myself and have done as mentioned.

How to install hyper v on dell 2650. Can Windows 2008 with hyper v be installed on a Dell 2650?


Hello,

Yes, Server 2008 will install on the 2650 as long as you make sure you have enough RAM and hard drive space. Once you have Server 08 installed, you will have a to-do list to help with setting up hyper-v.

Good Luck

Dell Poweredge 2650 - How do I disable RAC


If this is a security concern then there is nothing to be concerned about so long as you do not plug a network cable into the RAC.

Otherwise, if it is an add-in card just remove it.

If you can't remove it there should be a way of accessing it when the server starts up. You should be able to go into the configuration and disable its functions.

I hope this helps.

How to transfer OS and data to newer Poweredge server


The new RAID controller should read the data from the drives and work without difficulty. You will need to transfer all drives at the same time. Be sure to put the drives in the same spot in the new server.

Here are the bad news parts:

1. Your data is at risk. Make sure you do a good backup before trying this.

2. It is far more likely that your performance problems come from disk access or memory than the actual processor. If this is the case, then you probably won't be helping yourself with the migration. If you haven't already done so, analyze what is causing your performance bottleneck to make sure you are going in the right direction.

Can not boot dell poweredge from usb cd


try turning usb support on in the bios,if this doesnt work try reseting your bios this should return it to default,hit f2 as it restarts when you are in. hit alt e alt f it should beep everytime you do this,what this basically does is clears nvram, go to boot devices and see what you have available,exit and retry your boot device

I'm having some trouble with a dell poweredge 2650 I bought off eBay.


You are not too clear, however I'll take a guess ..

1) Booting from CD ... older CD drives fitted to PE26xx range do not recognize Windows 2003 bootable install CD's .. the TS-L462C (a laptop drive) should be compatible with the PE 2650 (I know it works in my 2600)

2) Installing the Operating System onto the PERC SCSI Array drives .. a total pain .. with older OS (Windows 2000) you can use the 4 x floppy disk set to install and hit (F6 ? as I recall) to tell it to 'load a 3rd party driver' ... get the PERC drivers from the Dell site.

Alternative = toss the useless Tape Drive and install a set of SATA drives in the same space (a 3 drive Hot Swap caddy eclosure will fit = Icy Box or StarTech) .. you will need a PCI RAID card (such as Si3124) since the M'Bd has nothing but a combined floppy/TapeDrive IDE interfafce.

3) Finally, be aware that this is a SERVER level box .. spare parts & Dell 'official' upgrades are going to cost you an arm & a leg = and don't even ask what the special 'ECC parity' Memory sticks cost :-)
