Put the hard disk in, allow the OS to identify it, format the drive and you'll be all set.

    Yes. Just pop it in, and have the disk formatted when it gets identified.

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.

Drive Options with a Dell Poweredge 2600


I would definitively not recommend to remove the backplates, unless you want to ask for serious trouble with your system.

I would install a PCI SATA adapter card (one like these) and connect your SATA drives to it.

Regarding Adding Higher Configuaration HDD Into Exisisting Raid 5


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:

I need to add more hard drives to my poweredge 2600


You'll probably need to get caddies for the drives. You can get them from Dell by plugging in your service tag at http://support.dell.com.

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 Poweredge 2600 Bios FREEZES After Cpu check and before SCSI Drives check HELP!!!!


The BIOS check can freeze for many reasons.

Can you tell me if this is an existing system that was working fine and then had this problem, or is this a new (or new to you) system?

Can you give more information on what is actually showing on the screen?

Can i add 142GB of hard disk on Dell PE 2600 motherboard


You can always add more storage to a server, as long as you have enough internal connectors in the server. You can also purchase another scsi or sata backplane to add more ports if you're out of internal connectors.
You may also want to look into a SAN or NAS device to offload some of your not too frequently used data. Many SAN devices give incredible performance with pretty good scalability.

I want to format scsi drives and configure raid0


You can either do this in the BIOS or (easier) just run a Linux installer (such as Ubuntu) and it will offer to do it for you when it sees Windows-formatted partitions.

Would a SCSI disk and a IDE disk work together?


This solution works on WIN98 and I don?t see a reason why it wont work on you If there is something that you were missing you might want to check with anther expert. This solution is a little complex so I hope ill be able to explain it well enough: 1. Make a boot disk so u can format and install windows. 2. Define the new HD as MASTER and hook it up to "primary IDE" 3. Disconnect the SCSI and pull the board out. 4. Reset the comp from the boot disk u made (HD is connected) 5. Get in "bios settings" and make sure that the new HD is defined as "primary drive" In the 1st IDE 6. Now, perform a FDisk on the new HD, define partitions, do a reset and format the HD Install the operating system you wish to have, make sure it works well. 7. install the SCSI board and its HD make anther reset. 8. now the comp is supposed to make boot and recognize the SCSI, it is possible that you will need to define your system configurations but for that, regretfully, I cannot guide you Although this is not necessarily have to happen. Good luck
