Problem with new array.

Helo I have problem with new arrays on IBM DS400. IBM SAN is connected via Qlogic 2340 (drivers verion 9.0.2.16) to Windows 2003 server. Mian logical array works fine, but new logical arrays are not visible in win2003 hard drives console. ServeRaid detect new arrays, but only this application see new arrays. I can't activate new logical arrays by this application. Anyone have some idea how to fix this problem?

Do you see your new disk in the "Disk Management" window? To get there go to "run", type "compmgmt.msc", then click disk management. If you do see the disks there, then you need to format the disk to a "basic" configuration. If your new disk/volume does not show up there, I would suggest a hard reset on your server whenever possible. I see this issue at times with Windows and newly added storage array logical drives.

Does IBM x206m supports windows 7 and windows 8?


The original OS is Windows Server 2003. A real solid platform.

It all depends on the configurations and hardware. There is a real concerns on the array controller. I would not tempt fate. Instead look into Server 2008 or even 2012. MS has an evaluation of 2012.

If you really want to test without making any changes, download VMWare player and test away.

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.

You need to give windows installation the drivers for your Sata-Bus by pressing F6 while the installation load the drivers (like when we want to install on RAID drive). or do the following method follow the links in that page for Slipstreaming VIA Serial ATA drivers and the other link to create a boot CD Creating a bootable Windows CD with Nero.
it's all in the following link: http://weblogs.asp.net/jkey/archive/2005/08/28/423901.aspx

I have a HP DL 380 server and its configured as domain controler.... and has a raid5 configration .while we are woking it makes a restart and when its restarted windows was unable to boot asking for NTLDLR...


Are you able to get into the array configuration and make sure the logical drive is still intact? If the logical drive is gone, then your partition may be lost. If you are able to recover the logical drive in your array (which you should be able to if the RAID5 striping was stable) then you should be able to recover your data. You can get into the array configuration during the boot up sequence.

Run Compaq Array Configuration Utility


Hi Foambob,

Try all means to get a smartstart CD.
Normally new version will be able to use on older hardware , but no guarantees.
I have always found it easier to use smartstart CD auto mode.
You can also do the install and then run ntssd to update all the drivers etc., but I don't recommend it for novices. Use the auto mode , it takes longer but safely and surely.

Good luck
