How do I image the SCSI drives?

Ginko, thanks for your support ,appreciated.

Please tell me how I may image the hard drives since they are not ATA or SATA which can easily be connected via USB.
SCSI is a different story and I have no idea as how to image these drives as i do not have a physical SCSI---> to USB tool.

I do however have Acronis for imaging which is very much like Ghost (though much better)


Your prompt help is much appreciated

thank you very much

    It is amazing we look for support in all the additional places as oposed to using our common sense and contacting the MFR / supplier/Vendor conerned, in this case HP. After calling them and logging my request not only did they email me back with a FULL solution but followed up.

    The solution is rather simple, take out the Raid 0/1 drive (36GB) and repalce with the bigger 146GB drive let it rebuld and then once the rebuld has finished do the same with the second drive. Once the rebuld is finished use the HP ACU to Extend the unallocated free space and then Expand. there you have it folks :)
    PS: the same solution goes for Raid 5 {i this as an Array B with 3 drives}

    Thanks folks

Once you set the new drive into the array use Acronis to copy an image of disk with the system on one of the other disks (not the new one you are installing to), and then use restore image on imaging software to restore the image on the new disk.

Physical disk not found


Move into Raid Controller bios (ctrl +c)
Check other hard drives are visible.
If yes, you may insert disk in other free slot and see if it detects on that slot. If same issue then particular hdd may be faulty. You have to replace it
If no, turn off server, reset scsi and power cables.
Turn on server and see if it detects hard drives. If server has same issue then either scsi cable or hdd back plane may be faulty. Chance is more for hdd back plane

Thanks

Hard disk drive not detected during installing windows server 2003


It depends on what type of drive you are using. Plus, you may have to specify the array controller drivers if your are using the SAS (Serial Attached SCSI) drives.

Hello I have a query guys on hp ML350 server is that at the end of the inauguration of Windows blue screen appears You change the RAM first and then reduce Alhardat from three to two, but without the...


The system is not designed to use IDE hard drives which why you are getting a blue screen. It is designed to use SCSI hard drives and IDE CD/DVD drives. It might be possible to go into the server's BIOS setup and change the boot device from the onboard SCSI controller to the IDE controller. It is very likely that you will have to disconnect all SCSI devices to boot to IDE, if it is possible.
I hope this helps.

The hard drive needs to be set as the first SCSI ID device boot device..
The hard drive needs to have the jumper set to SCSI ID 0, the CD and FDD can be set to SCSI ID 1 and SCSI ID 2. No SCSI devices can have the same SCSI ID number unless it is on a different SCS controller.

My dell 2600 cannot identify the hard drives even from the bios.somebody mentioned the raid card.any ideas??


Have you used SCSI drives? I think it should have 80 pins. What was the SIZE of the HDD? You must have the EXACT SAME SIZE for all the Available Hard Drives. Its RAID. You must install (2 or 3 or what ever the number) hard drives with exact the same capacity. IF you have used/ are using 40 GB then you have to use the exact same size. You cannot CHANGE the Size. Then the Raid Array will Fail. If you are using RAID 5 or any similar technology then No Chance.
And you must Launch the "Rebuild Array".
If you have errors while Rebuilding: I would suggest updating the firmware on the remaining drives as there may be an issue with SCSI timeout errors that caused your disk to fall off its array.

Erase data from IBM x serie 306 Model: 8836-2MX


I'm assuming that you have SCSI drives in there. IBM has a built-in utility to manage these drives. Just watch the boot messages and it will tell you what key to press to bring it up.

Even better would be to go to the IBM site and download the image for the IBM Serverguide. I think you're looking for version 7.4. Check this link: http://www-947.ibm.com/systems/support/supportsite.wss/docdisplay?lndocid=SERV-GUIDE&brandind=5000008.

I can´t use a serial ata disk in a proliant 350


I know ATA disks are cheaper , but they don't last as long or are less reliable.

I do not recommend mixing SCSI and ATA .

Use one or the other , not both.

Do not try , unless your server is non critical.
If it is non critical , why bother with server , a PC will do as well.

Thanks

There are many configuration settings, although i personally would hunt down an SCSI hard disk, many will fit from many other models just like IDE ones
