Question about Dell PowerEdge 2600 Server

1 Answer

Poweredge 2600/Powervault 770N does not boot

Just got a used PowerVault 770N, that thing does not boot up at all.
I get no VGA Display/output, no keyboard light, the system status light is blue for a few seconds, then the caution indicator blinks ("off" status + "blinking" caution = The system has detected an error and requires attention according to the Dell troubleshooting guide).

I don't think I can use console redirection at this time to troubleshoot this further.

I looked into finding a manual for the motherboard to see if any of the internal LED would give me any kind of hint on what's wrong (since no post code/sound is heard, I'm at loss).

What would you guys try first/next?

    The CPU of the server has jumped out of its socket. I'll blame the shipping company (USPS) but wonder how this is possible... I'm thinking someone played a little bit with the hardware before the machine was shipped since a CPU was also missing.

I recommend that you first try replacing the power cord, if that doesn't work try replacing the power supply.

SOURCE: CAn I disable RAID on a DEll powervault 770n server

Its called the JBOD RAID option - just a bunch of discs.

I don't know of any system that makes a RAID array an operational imperative, I would say the answer to your question is yes.

RTFM.

Tape eject from drive


Hi. This is from Dells site regarding automatic ejection of tape once inserted:

The PowerVault 110T DLT VS160 Tape drive reads and writes DLTtape VS1 cartridges. The PowerVault 110T DLT VS160 Tape drive can read - but not write - DLTtape™ IV cartridges written using the DLT1/VS80 format. NOTE: The PowerVault 110T DLT VS160 Tape drive automatically ejects any other cartridge types and any cartridges whose format it cannot read. Make sure all cartridges that you want to use for writing are DLTtape VS1 cartridges.


Perhaps your cartridge is improperly formatted or is of the incorrect type?

Operating System question


I don't KNOW that this will work, but what I'd reccomend is that you try using the drivers for windows 2000 on your windows XP machine

a list of dell drivers and support for the powervault is here:
