Is it possible to plug 10 cat5 (network) cables that come from 10 different DSL modems to an HP server so I have 10 different broadband lines connected to one single server? Yes, it's a terrible idea but yes you can. If so how? Buy some multi-port NICs Any suggestions from geniuses in Networking? A hint of sarcasm there but I'll rise ...

The Intel X5690 CPU is not compatible in an HP ProLiant DL360 G6 server. The X5670 is the fastest 6-core CPU that will work in that model... This is a heat/power constraint on the DL360 G6/G7 platform. When my specifications called for X5680 or X5690 CPUs, I needed to use G6 or G7 DL380 2U servers to accommodate them.

There is an advisory about a ROM upgrade dated 2013-08-15 that lists that system amongst others and apples to a small number of processors including the X5690. The Intel chipset used on the MB does support it. Advisory: ProLiant Servers with Certain Intel Xeon Processors - CRITICAL SYSTEM ROM UPGRADE REQUIRED for Intel Xeon X5675/X5687/X5690 ...

Please examine the ILO log and the IML log. The server will tell you exactly what's wrong. But really, I wonder if you may have caused another issue while swapping components looking for a solution. If you're seeing an error on a particular DIMM slot, there may actually be a problem with the CPU socket for the processor associated with that memory ...

Do you know the IP to the iLO in question? Do you know the credentials? If not, you'll need to use one of the following methods, up to and including powering off the server and using the dip switch block on the motherboard: http://h20564.www2.hp.com/hpsc/doc/public/display?docId=mmr_kc-0115524 Then access the iLO via https on the IP you have set with the ...

You don't even need the ILO for this. If you have access to the operating system, you don't actually need to do this through the ILO. You can download the HP Service Pack for ProLiant DVD .ISO to the server and run it, following the instructions along the way. You can download the individual firmware updates for that platform piecemeal from the ML370 G5 ...

For help with the ClassNotFoundException "com.hp.ilo2.remcons.remcons.class" error, see "Investigating/Fixing HP ILO2 Java Remote Console fails to start with Class Not Found remcons.class" from framer99 Link Here. This fixed the problem for me on my older HP servers.

Two things: I would build anew and rsync data. Your downtime allotment/window seems to be too short. 30 minutes can work in specific situations, but shouldn't YOU be dictating the realistic downtime requirement based on what it takes to actually accomplish the work? Depending on the data contained within each server, the amount of data churn, and your ...

If your previous OS version is able to handle the new Hardware (mostly RAID controller) you can give a try to CloneZilla. To check if it is possible to move from one hardware to another you cad pass all data from old to new server doing some tricks with dd. Boot the new server with a live distro like SystemRescueCD, configure with an IP address and a dd ...

It should be noted, that there may be other steps needed, depending on the distribution. Most notably the drivers (thanks for pointing that out @ewwhite). Boot the new server from livecd/usb. Prepare partitions and bootblock on the new drives. Depending on setup, this could be done by copying MBR/bootblock. Make the filesystems. Do an rsync from old ...

I don't have any 12-bay servers to test with right now, but understand that there's an expander backplane in between your disks and your controller. From the HP SSA utility: Enclosure SEP (Vendor ID HP, Model DL18xG6BP) 248 Device Number: 248 Firmware Version: 2.20 WWID: 50001C1071540013 Port: 2I Box: 1 Vendor ID: HP ...

Why wouldn't you just correct the order? There's no reason to "what if" when you KNOW that this is not a recommended configuration. As for whether it will work, you will see once the server completes its POST. But I don't think it's necessary to play that game. Do you want to do this the right way? If so, spec and arrange the RAM according to the DIMM ...

There's no need for another license to enable RAID6 functionality on an HP Smart Array P42x RAID controller. It was included after a certain release of the firmware. The current controller firmware is version 6.34. You can download the firmware for this from HP. Go to http://hp.com and select "Support". Enter your product's name in the provided field... ...

It is free in the latest versions of the firmware (since 4.68). However, you may need a licence from HP to legally download the required update.

This is a bit nuts... That's too many disks for a RAID5. It's offset by the fact that you have two hot-spare drives, but damn!! However, you've already expanded the underlying Array, but not the Logical Drive. Remember, the "Array" is the physical grouping of disks. The "Logical Drive" is what you assign RAID level to. You can have multiple Logical Drives ...

Unused Space: 8974754 MB - that 8.55TB. There's your missing space. You should be able to expand it with hpacucli command (modify size=max parameter).

As i know is not possible to get temperature via HPilo at least on hpilo2 on Integrity Is possible to get with hpux or linux using smh(linux/hpux) and crprop(hpux) This at least on my old rx2600 server

No, you can't just use any SSD in that model server. The Smart Array P410 array controller is a little sensitive, but will work with most SSDs. For others, it may not recognize the disks or will show error lights or even cause the system fan speeds to increase (because of misread SSD temperature sensors). Being more specific about which SSDs you'd like to ...

I couldn't find this anywhere else so if hopefully this helps somebody The command is: ip route static 0.0.0.0 0.0.0.0 x.x.x.x (IP of default gateway)

What's the question here? You don't seem to be comparing apples-to-apples. So I'm not sure if you just want this system to run like your other systems, or if you really care about the cause of the performance difference. You could obtain another of the server model and SKU that you're familiar with. You could use the same type of disks you used in ...

It's almost like there's a guide you can follow for this :) But the quickest option for you may be to bootstrap your Windows 2012 R2 installation by using the HP Intelligent Provisioning Utility baked into the system BIOS. Use the opportunity to update the system BIOS and firmware as well. The Smart Array RAID controller on the Microserver is the culprit ...

As ewwhite say this can be made to work but with a few caveats. Firstly you don't mention the specific model or generation of blade you're using but I'm imagining they'll be something a BL460 G6 or similar, presumably with a single P711m in mezz slot 1 - does that sound about right? If so then you do have a couple of problems - mezz slot one maps to ...

I'd work with the partner to make sure this goes smoothly, but in general, this should work. Some of the gear here is old-school (G6 boxes, first-generation MSA2324, MSA70, etc.), so once you've moved and ensured proper functionality, you should consider firmware upgrades.

That's a lot of work for ancient 2006-2008-era servers. I wouldn't bother trying to repair/replace a motherboard, when you can just get another unit for $60. But a bigger lesson is that servers of this vintage may not even be fit for repurposed use. Is the headache worth it? For repair, though, please reference the HP DL380 G5 Maintenance and Service ...

ewwhite was right. For those how want to see how i get the values in PRTG (Networkmonitoring) here are my scripts. I know the following is NOT very nice and seems to be very "froggy", but for me it works and i only need values over a periode of about a week... The ssh connection is established via "plink.exe" a smart comand line tool as a part of the SSH ...

I cross posted this to Reddit and this was the best reply there, which is the closest to an answer I got: http://www.reddit.com/r/sysadmin/comments/337n7v/any_hp_tape_drive_knowledge_here/ Note: I have never done this, so do this at your own risk, but my google-fu turned up: http://h20564.www2.hp.com/hpsc/doc/public/display?docId=mmr_kc-0114372 ...
