You don't "reset" power supplies. They run until they fail. At that point, you replace the power supply with one that works.

If you meant "reseat" then you would first determine what type of PSU you have. If it's a redundant power supply, you unplug the power supply, activate the latch on the handle of the PSU module and pull...then push it back in and plug it back in. (Flip any switches to the "On" position.)

Replace power supplies that do not come back on.

Resetting the power supplies isn't necessary. Once one of the ptwo power supplies fails, the second power supply automatically takes over. Also, there isn't a need to power down the system to change the supplies as long as you change them one at a time.

SOURCE: Poweredge 2600 power supplies in red

Hi

PowerEdge 2600 utilizes a Power Distribution Module (PDM) for power redundancy. The two (Max) Power Supply Units plug into the Power Distribution Module in the front and two power cords at the back from power outlets..

If a power supply lites RED, it indicates the respective power supply unit is faulty (normally) and/or the slot/PDM is faulty (very rear). Given that both power supplies indicated fault the issue may as well be with the PDM.

Check here for help to re-seat the PDM cables. If issue persists consider replacing the PDM.

Let me know if further help is needed

Mike

SOURCE: Adding DVD to Poweredge 2600

PE2600 has lots of spare power (unless you are already using all 6 SCSI drive bays) ..

You can fit 3 x SATA drives in the space where the (useless) tape backup unit is sitting [you can even buy a 'proper' enclosure = Icy Dock MB453SPF or I think the SNT-2131 will fit ] .. and you can split the power off the Tape drive (4pin) power socket ..

I've not found a DVD burner (only a combined DVD reader / CD burner = TS-L462C) .. however if you have a spare IDE port you should be able to use an external unit [you will need an e-ide cable & enclosure for the drive]

Dell provides lifetime tech support for all PE servers. Call them at 800-945-3355 and give them the service tag or express service code from the server. If it can be done, they will tell you how.
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.

I recommend that you first try replacing the power cord, if that doesn't work try replacing the power supply.

Problem with creating array


The Perc RAID controller in a 2600 doesn't support RAID 4.
You can do RAID 0, RAID 1 and RAID 5.

With 3 HDD's your best bet would be a RAID 5.

Mirroring is RAID 1 (which would only use 2 of the drives)
