    also this problem occurred after a power related event. I think the raid controller might just need to be reconfigured...please advise. thank you.

    There are four scsi drives in the sever on the same ribbon cable. I tested all the drives separately by powering them up one at a time and they all appear to be operational. Also I removed and reseated the power and ribbon cable connections, power leads, controller card and ram cell on the controller card.

SOURCE: PowerEdge 2600 does not boot up ?

you need to set the boot device order. Usually F12.
or you can go to bios with F2 or F10.

your cd-rom is wrong you need the Instalation and Server Management CD. I think it's possible to download this cd at their site.

good luck

Look in Bios setup for OS Install mode setting. If it is enabled, it restricts the RAM to 256MB. Change the setting to off and it will sense the total RAM

SOURCE: dell server poweredge 1800 frequently shutdown

is there an error message that appears? can you check error logs? I need more information to be able to help you. I would first try to blow dust out of the fans, as it may be over heating, another possibility is that there is software on the machine that is causing it to shut down.

SOURCE: Adding DVD to Poweredge 2600

PE2600 has lots of spare power (unless you are already using all 6 SCSI drive bays) ..

You can fit 3 x SATA drives in the space where the (useless) tape backup unit is sitting [you can even buy a 'proper' enclosure = Icy Dock MB453SPF or I think the SNT-2131 will fit ] .. and you can split the power off the Tape drive (4pin) power socket ..

I've not found a DVD burner (only a combined DVD reader / CD burner = TS-L462C) .. however if you have a spare IDE port you should be able to use an external unit [you will need an e-ide cable & enclosure for the drive]

Disk 4 "is not ready"


> it does detect it on controller initiation.

Even when the drive is not spinning, it will identify itself (manufacturer, capacity) when queried. So, it's possible that it "checks-in", but files/directories on it cannot be read.

I am having a problem with my dell poweredge 1800, it beeping continuous


Assuming this is still an issue...old as it is...

You need to boot the server and press the correct prompt to enter the BIOS of your PERC RAID controller. There you need to manage your physical/logical volumes.

Chances are that either you had a drive failure or the metadata on your RAID volume (JBOD?) was corrupted. This is a common issue with these LSI-based PERC[5-6]i RAID controllers that Dell utilized.

How do I replace a 73Gb disk in a RAID 5 config - DELL PE 4600


That depends on your configuration.
If the drive you want to change is installed in the peripheral bay, you have to turn the machine off before you can pull that drive out. Also: Hot-plug drive installation is not supported for systems without an integrated RAID controller or host adapter expansion card!

Look for more details on how to change a drive here.

If you have any more questions, just come back here and leave a comment - I'm happy to help.

1 logical harddisk degraded, RAID Poweredge


Revert back to original configuration of hdd in your RAID setup. Boot to SCIS BIOS and double check functionality of hard drives. The error is probably telling you that Disk1 is degraded because disk 0 is failing and you removed the wrong hard drive.

CAN YOU TELL ME HOW TO GET WINDOWS XP TO LOAD ON THE DELL 2600 POWEREDGE SERVER IT ONLY OFFERS SERVER 2000 AND SERVER 2003 AND I CANT USE EITHER OF THEM THANKS MIKE


Hi tham01,

First off, if the server has raid already setup, you will need to go into lsi logic to format the drives so you can install XP. Once the drives have been initiated from the server bios, just place XP in the CDROM, and shouldn't have a problem loading on the 2600 POWEREDGE SERVER. If your trying to install it with the Dell quick install disk, you can't!!! Install it on it's own without the Dell Disk.

Good Luck!

Dell power edge 1600 server


Is this hard drive in a RAID set? if it is, you will need to replace it with the exact same drive. After you do that, you will need to go into the RAID controller bios and initiate a rebuild.
