Question about Dell PowerEdge 1650 Server

1 Answer

Poweredge 1650 pinouts

Yes looking to identify mainboard connector for the front panel so I can fire it up, hdd indicator led, reset switch etc. I think I have figured out how to interface the power supply, but need to figure out how to connect switches and led's. I think it actually has an LCD status panel in the rack mount frame.
Ideally would love to find a scrapped out rack case for it, but nobody seems to be selling just that peice cheaply.

Hi there, i'm assuming that you have a bare bons system without a case whichis why you are asking the question.

The power switch and status LEDs are mounted on a control board that sits to the left of the drive bay at the front of the machine and connects to the mai board via a flexible circuit board/ribbon cable.

You might get more indication of where this connects from the service documentation which you can find here :-

Hope that's of some help.

Can windows xp operating system be installed on poweredge 1650 server


Yes it can however XP isn't a network operating system. Your server would be deprived of many features and options that make a server a server. I've heard of people putting XP on their servers, and if all you are doing is using the Poweredge 1650 as a file server then fine. But you don't need a server for that, could have used a desktop with XP as a file server.

Dell poweredge 1650 is beeping with blue flashing light


Flashing blue light is harmless - it simply means the Identify button has been pushed. There is a small button with a white, cursive 'i' on the front and back of the server - pressing this will make the light flash blue (or make it stop).

Go to Dell's support site and view the manual for the 1650 for an explanation of the beep code - identify the pattern of the beep.

If you are still able to get to Windows, use OpenManage Server Administrator to check the Hardware logs and RAID array.

System will power on for about 3 seconds and then shut down and the blue indicator light on front is flashing


your poweredge has detected a hardware fault. If it is under warranty contact Dell. If it is out of warranty, you might carefully open the unit, and locate the fault diagnostic leds. They should be lit indicating the code for the fault condition/part.

In raid 5 yes you can, yet you won't use the ful hard drive, the system will take only 73GB because that's the smallest HD in your array.

Just, of course, follow the indications for your specific RAID hardware/software about how to add a new HD to it:

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.

Poweredge 1650 not booting


It is possible the mainboard/motherboard is bad. However, you might want to check the internal fans on the 1650 to make sure they are not clogged or they are not obstructed. That would be the
first thing to check. After that if nothing work, then look to reset the CMOS (you should simply be able to short a jumper for them) or just simply take out the CMOS battery for a minute, then reconnect it.

Power light


Are you referring to to Power LED or the System Status Indicator cause what I can remember from that particular model Dell server thst system status indicator was blue! Use this page to help identify what exactly is showing up as orange(or amber)! http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/pe2600/en/sm/beep.htm#1057698 If it is the system status you'll need to go over the other indicators to troubleshoot what exactly is causing the problem! regards, babb
