Hello, I think you might find more information on starting up the DL380 G2 at the link shown below:
http://h20566.www2.hpe.com/hpsc/doc/public/display?docId=emr_na-c00972124

Also, the replacement instructions, in case it needs to be replaced, (and relevant troubleshooting info) for the 5i controller are found in the link here :http://h20566.www2.hpe.com/hpsc/doc/public/display?sp4ts.oid=316587&docLocale=en_US&docId=emr_na-c00688182

Please first make sure that you are using the proper startup boot disk for the server before entering the CD ROM option from the boot menu. Also, check the front panel of the SCSI drives for any errors or blinking LEDS that correspond to an error code. You can run a diagnostics CD/DVD that arrived with the manufacturer's pack to detect any raid issues on startup.

If you are still facing difficulties with booting up the server, you can find a video for replacement of the appropriate scsi drive here if you are still facing any issues of your scsi drive. Try a different hard disk or check the relevant diagnostics to verify whether is the controller or the drive that complicates the booting of the server

For more details check the scsi manual in the link below (section "FBWC LEDs" , pages 15-17).

Hello,

How big if your environment? How many users? Do you have remote access needs? If your environment is under 75 users then you might want to consider moving to Windows Small Business Server. It's a great little package that includes Exchange with it. You can also get the premium edition which includes Sharepoint.

Don't forget licensing needs during this whole process too. You want to make sure you are covered properly with software licenses from Microsoft when making the migration.

The hardware specs seem adequate but it will depend on the amount of users in your environment and workload for it.

I've included three links to different options for migration:

This link is pretty good to explain using the Microsoft tool.

http://www.petri.co.il/active_directory_migration_tool_usage_w2k_windows_2003.htm

This link provides info on the swing migration which is a bit more popular in the small business arena. Works pretty good. I've done it a few times.
http://www.sbsmigration.com/pages/14/

This link is for Acronis products that allow for easy ghosting or copying of data from one server to another. The good thing about this tool is that your SIDs are kept the same. So I don't know if its a big deal (depends on your environment size) but it can be a pain to rejoin workstations to a domain if new servers are added without successfully moving necessary settings. I've used this tool a few times. It's quick and easy.

I look forward to hearing more from you. Please update me on the questions I asked and if I can help further I will be glad too. Don't forget to rate the solutions once we're done! Thanks.

SOURCE: I have HP proliant DL160 server. How i will make RAID two HD?

Try going into the RBSU(Rom based setup utility) and configuring SATA RAID in the advanced section.

This doesn't work for all versions - if it doesn't help, please be more specific about your configuration, i.e. what "G" level is the server? Hot plug or non hot plug drive? etc.

Server won't boot and nothing to even show on the screen i need help urgently.


Are there lights on the front of it? If so, try to re-seat the memory as the first step; servers overheat and are subject to "chip creep". If you don't have any lights, it could be the power supply or system board.

How do i boot a compaq proliant dl380 with a usb drive set up for booting?


Hello,

Make sure you have turned on the USB Boot in the BIOS of the os. Once this is done, select the order you would like for the server to locate boot files. (Hard Drive, USB, CD/DVD, etc.) Once complete, insert the USB and reboot the server.

Good Luck

Make sure the BIOS is fully updated from the HP website. Most DL3-series servers supported booting from an external USB cd, try F10 or F12 at boot in order to bring up a boot menu.

In HP prolliant server sets, setup also logs system events. This error is due to that log. Enter setup, trace log and clear all events.
