Re: ServerView Suite

Installation manager will help you deploy an operating system onto either a physical or virtual server but it must be a PRIMERGY (no third party servers are supported) Agents must be installed on the physical host (not a VM) As I said earlier, RAID manager can be installed on a VM - you just need to...

Re: ServerView Suite

Hi JKA - lots of questions! You are basically correct. The whole ServerView suite is a collection of programs, all with different functions, which together make a whole family of utilities These components can be summed up as follows... 1) ServerView Installation Manager: This is the bootable CD tha...

Re: server tx1310m3

If your BIOS is set to UEFI mode (which is now default) then instead of getting the CTRL-M prompt for the RAID BIOS, it is instead found at the bottom of the Advanced tab in the main F2 BIOS. Or you can set it to legacy BIOS which will make it behave the old way Or you can boot off ServerView CD and...

Re: TX100 S3p reports hardware failure

Understand what you are saying about "generic" drivers .. EXCEPT ....

If you are running the onboard RAID controller then generic drivers won't work - you need the proper LSI driver. If you disable the onboard RAID and run it in AHCI mode instead then you need no drivers

Re: TX100 S3p reports hardware failure

Firstly, desktop operating systems aren't supported on a server so there will be no Windows 7 drivers available for this - you are probably running Win 2008 R2 drivers which may or may not be compatible with Windows 7 Your BSOD should give a stop code and brief description of the error - for example...

Re: FTS RAID Ctrl SAS 6G 1GB (D3116C) firmware update

The firmware for this card (other than updating via Windows) is only available on the Update DVD available on the download site under "Applications" Because of the size of this Update DVD, it doesn't support older servers and it is sometimes best to download instead the Update DVD Base and...

Re: Warning Led blinking in Primergy RX100 S5

The power button override message is probably just that - you've reset the server at sometime but forcing a power off. No timestamps on your message so it could be recent or could be ancient. Unlikely this is causing the LED though The other message is also self explanatory - BIOS Keyboard error - k...

Re: RX2530 M4 won't recognise HDD

If you are using SAS disks then you very definitely need a SAS controller. SAS controllers can drive SATA disks but SATA controllers cannot see SAS disks. Your onboard controller is SATA only so unless you put in a SAS card you won't see your disks. The SAS expander is irrelevant if you are using on...

Re: Installing new drives

There is no simple way to do this although some TX100 S3 base units were capable of taking 4 HDDs so you could potentially just add the two disks as extras and then create a new RAID1 on the 2 new disks and use it for data

Re: LSI WebBIOS keep showing "PD Missing: Enclosure 8: Slot 3"

It does look like it is the firmware level that is the problem - all released disks for RX300 S6 seem to have a firmware level of 52xx .. is it possible that the replacement disk has come from an ETERNUS for example? The ETERNUS units run completely different firmware on their disks (520 byte blocks...

Re: Problems winth 3tb hard disk on SERVER PRIMERGY TX100 S2

1. What theory? As I previously said this server only supports up to 2Tb disks 2. The controller is an integral part of the motherboard so the controller update would be included in the BIOS firmware. As stated this server is OLD so no more updates will be available 3. There is a certified PCI RAID ...

Re: Problems winth 3tb hard disk on SERVER PRIMERGY TX100 S2

The largest hard disks supported by this server is 2Tb. The last BIOS update for the TX100 S2 was nearly 6 years old (shows how old the server is) - so no, I suspect there is nothing you can do apart from buy authorised 2Tb disks instead
