DL380 series Remote insight nightmare... by
Hi, Firstly, I've inherited this mess from the previous chief techy so don't groan too much... We've got 4x CPQ DL380 G2 machines and an HP DL380 G3 machine at our colo facility. They all have remote insight boards fitted of varying descriptions. The DL380 G2 machines apparently (despite...

Comparing servers? by ***** charles
Hi all, new thread/question. I went to the local computer fair yesterday. Around here they hold them twice a month, first and third saturdays. Someone there was selling some Compaq 6400R's for $150 each. They seemed fully loaded with both cpus', lots of ram and lots of hd's in them. Another...

The PL3000 story continues. by ***** charles
Hi all, Well I went to work on the ProLiant 3000 yesterday. It is actually about 40 miles from where I live. I took my newly SLOWLY burned SmartStart 5.5 cd and a Debian Internet install ISO cd. I inserted the SS55 into the cd drive and fired up the machine. It booted and I got the graphical...

Resurecting a ProLiant 3000? by ***** charles
Hi all, The Linux group I attend just got a ProLiant 3000. It had just one cpu and 64M of ram and 6)hds. One of the other members got another P2-333 that matched and got the ram up to 851M. One of the hd's was bad and was removed so now it has 5) 9G scsi's in it. The cmos date is 1998 and I...

Adding hd space to a PL3000? by ***** charles
Hi all, I am trying to set up an addon pci ide card in a proliant 3000. If I install it with a couple of 250G ide drives and leave the scsi drives unplugged during install, then it only boots to the card. If I leave out the pci ide card and plug in the scsi drives and install to them, then the...

Playing musical chairs with RAID configuration by .
I currently have a Proliant 1200 with a SMART-2SL RAID controller. There is one drive installed in the system, naturally configured as RAID 0. What I'd like to do now is have 2 drives in the system and configured as RAID 1. I also have a 7000 with an empty drive bay, so I figured what I'd do...

Can you modify RAID5 configuration on a Proliant 5000 without nuking the drive? by .
I've successfully managed to get Gentoo onto this system after going through the usual hoops. Now before I started, I used SCU to set up the SMART-2DH for RAID 5, and I have 4 disks in the bay (0-3). They're all being used as a single logical disk (/dev/ida/c0d0). Now my question is:...

Can you add a Integrated Management LCD to a 1200? by .
I've just acquired a Proliant 1200R server, and I've noticed the little blanking plate on the front panel that certainly looks like it's meant to take a Integrated Management Display, a la the Proliant 7000. This machine is a Pentium II (266MHz) model and I was wondering, will the 1200 accept an...

Pentium II 300MHz in a 1200 - can do? by .
On my quest for headers in the junk box at the back of the workshop, I stumbled across a CPU, a Pentium II marked 80522PX300512EC which I believe is a 300MHz model with a 66MHz FSB. Now I just wondered whether it would be worth plugging into the Proliant 1200R I got last Sunday - it has a 266MHz...

Proliant 1200 Error 162 - System Options Not Set by .
My 1200 keeps booting up with this now. It doesn't affect the way the machine runs except that I have to be there to hit F1 to get it past the error. This is undesirable as it's a firewall and has to be able to boot all the way when it powers up. I've checked the battery on the expansion board...

Proliant 7000 rails by .
Can anybody tell me the specific part number for the rackmount slides to suit the Proliant 7000 machine? I've got a bunch of normal slides to suit the 5000/5500/1200 stuff, but they don't suit the 7000. The machine width is 422mm for these machines, but for some reason Compaq decided to make...

Question on Compaq StorageWorks RAID Array 4100 by .
I have a question about the Compaq StorageWorks RAID Array 4100, as someone I know is selling one, but I'm not sure about exactly how it all hangs together. I'm interested in building up a Network Attached Storage device. I know the 4100 has 12 slots, a smart array controller, and a fibre...

Bar graph display on IMD for Proliants by .
I remember somewhere that there is a utility which talks to the IMD on machines like the 5500, 7000, and so on which gives you a bar graph display of CPU load, memory used, and a couple of other configurable things. I also remember that it's strictly a Win2K or Win Server 2003 utility. I've had a...

Max storage on Proliant 7000? by .
What's the maximum internal storage I can have in a 7000? I've seen the original literature that said something like 18 x 18GB drives for 324MB, but is there anything, say, stopping me from getting (for example) 72GB drives, putting them in the caddies and having a RAID 5 array of 350MB or so that...

Screwed by .
Can anybody tell me the name of those spring-loaded knurled-headed screws that are press-fitted into the front panels of the ProLiant rack servers, used to secure said beast into said rack? I'm trying to get hold of a few to fill in the holes in a couple of machines and it would help if I knew...

What's the deal with rack mounting the ProLiant 7000? by .
I've been busy building up my rack today, and put in the 1200 and the 5500 without any great dramas, apart from lifting the 5500 to head height - talk about working out. Now the rail kits I'm using are seconds from the local Compaq wrecking yard. The 1200 was good in that I bought it with rails,...

Question on RAID by .
I currently have a Proliant 5000 doing RAID5 with 4 disks. If I add the final & fifth drive, and run SCU to reconfigure the SMART-2DH array controller so that the new drive is an off-line spare, do I need to have the new disk partitioned and formatted before I do this, or can you just plug in a...

SmartStarting a Proliant 1600 by .
I've just picked up a Proliant 1600 (dual PII 400MHz) to build up as a firewall for a friend. It's got two 9.1GB drives in it and the first thing I did was do a system erase on it and started doing a manual install for Linux. The odd thing is, nowhere can I find where to set up the array...
