HP proliant DL380 gen4 PXE-E61, when trying to install redhat and solaris.


First, it's not booting from a CD or Hard Disk if you've reached that error. The 'last-ditch' effort to boot is to attempt a PXE boot from the network card, but your Ethernet cable isn't plugged in. Unless you know you've setup such a PXE boot server, you'll want to check the BIOS settings to be sure the CD-ROM is set to boot first, followed by the Hard Disc. Be sure you have Disc 1 of the Linux installation set in the CD-ROM Drive and reboot. If you don't get the install screen, you may have another issue (bad CD-ROM Drive, bad cable/controller, no power to CD-ROM, etc.)

Another note on the DL380, if there is a RAID controller, you'll need to setup the RAID before installing the OS. You'll want to make sure your hard drives are properly installed and aren't failed. The RAID configuration screen will verify the RAID status once it has been initialized, which will somewhat verify the drive status.

Hp proliant dl380 g4 not booting from hard drive


I bought an HP DL380 G4 from here, and called them up any time I had a question like this. These guys were amazingly smart. Perhaps you can call them up and pretend to be a customer?

I have HP PROLIANT DL 380 (G4). I removed hard disk. Its start and few seconds restart again. its happening continuously. Any solution.


need to provide moreinfo.
is the server (prolaint DL380) constantly rebooting within BIOS mode or has it got to the stage of running windows.
The other item not mentioned here, is, IF the raid controller has failed, you will not see any disks initializing and would cause the system to continually reboot.
If it is an internal raid controller, it is part of the motherboard, you will need to contact HP to have it replaced.

If an pci related array controller .. i.e. separate to the motherboard, this will need to be replaced to see the HDD's.
Either way sounds like a hardware issue. Best to liaise directly with vendor to have the faulty components replaced.

I want step by step guidlines on how to instal smart start on a Hp proliant server


You don't actually install SmartStart. You boot from the SmartSmart CD and then based on the menu selections you make, it will configure RAID and install the appropriate drivers to prep the system for the OS of your choice. After this, it will initiate the installation of the OS.

Since your server is a G4, the CDs you have are probably very out of date. I would recommend downloading the latest SmartStart from hp.com before proceeding.

If you already have an OS on your DL380 and are trying to update the drivers you are looking for the Proliant Support Pack, not SmartStart. This can also be downloaded from hp.com - the exact directions for installation vary by OS but are included with the download.

Drive array problem


Hi Nick ,

As of now you can Select "F2" to accept data loss and re-enable logical drive. This Load OS Normally .
It seems that one of the HDD in the RAID 5 has failed , Did you notice any LED indications like red or amber on the HDDs ?? if so get that hdd replaced . Make sure the Failed HDD is replaced .
You can run the Array Diagnostic Utility from HP System tools to check the Failed Drives and also frimware version of the controller . If the frimware is not latest Update it from HP website. DL380 G4 should have Smart Array 6i controller .

Hope This was Helpful
cheers :)

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
David
