Controller monitor failed,controller not started appeared on my screen when i opened our server systemx3500


This is a raid controller failure. Server is not able to initialize device.

Workaround:
1: Turn off server
2: Take out Raid Controller from server > blow air on raid controller slot to remove dust.
3: Put it back

Now turn on server and see of it gets initialized.

If you still gets error then its time to replace controller

Thanks

I am trying to install SBS 2011 (Win Server 2008 R2 OS) on an IBM x3400. I have created a Raid 1 (mirrored) array. When partitioning the RAID to install we get the message "Windows cannot be installed...


A few questions:

1. Is this a new (clean) install? If so, have you installed the drivers for the RAID controller BEFORE you install the os? Most of the time Windows will ask for this as the os check your sysem. (You will see at the bottom of the screen "if you have a 3rd party controller and need to install drivers, do so now" or something to this effect.

2. If you already have an os on this system, (Server 2008) you may need to check the the HCL for SBS 2011 to make sure you hardware is correct for the install.

Good Luck

While i am tring to repair 2003 standard server on IBM 3400 Tower server i am facing a issue that hdd not found


Windows not see the disk because they are connected through a raid controller.
When you start the recovery windows you have to offer the installer the driver for raid. Installer wait new driver only 5 seconds.
During this time you must press "F3" and point driver on floppy.

SERVER IBM SYSTEM X3400: "CONTROLLER MONITOR


Hi,

Welcome to fixya

This error can come if there is any issue on Raid controller

Most probably , dust will be the enemy.

Just re-fix the raid controller and check. ( Power off the server while doing this job)

After re-fix check if it works . If it doesn't then it's time to replace the controller.

Thanks

Hi,
Welcome to Fixya
The problem is with the raid controller . Either the controller is faulty or it is due to dust or happen some shake. To rectify this issue do the following
1: Switch off the server 2: Remove the Raid controller from the server and clean the dust . ( Please Don't touch with hand just blow air ) 3: Clean the Controller slot 4: Refix the Controller and power on the server . 5: Check whether the controller is booting or not . 6: If you gets same problem then replace the controller

Thanks

there must be some key on the startup to enter into the raid menu. And in that raid menu you can create raid .
