Little bit late, but I had same problem while installing centos 7. My HP ProLiant machine has two HP Smart Array and I install the boot partition on one of them and my machine configured to boot with other. So I changed the primary boot drive to the one that boot partition was installed on (to change primary boot drive in smary array configuration menu which ...

You can do this, but I'd recommend finding a like-model disk rather than using the larger 146GB 2.5" drive. If you have no other options (especially since 72GB disks are no longer manufactured), the 146GB disk will work and rebuild. The size of the disks and the vintage of the server indicate that this is an older G5 system (2005-2008), so at some point, ...

Can I replace the failed drive with a 150GB hard disk, by unplugging the failed drive while the system is running, and hotplugging the bigger 150GB hard disk? Yes, the array will begin to rebuild using the new disk. Is there any risk of system failure? No more than when replacing the disk with one of the same size.

I discovered a bug in BIOS. During start up press ESC -> F10 to go to Computer setup (BIOS settings). In the BIOS go to STORAGE -> BOOT ORDER In the "Please select boot device:" menu, you have the following list or similair: EFI Boot sources Legacy Boot sources ATAPI CD/DVD Drive SATA2 Hard Drive SATA0 Scroll down the list (by using down arrow key). ...

When you're in the ACU, the blue LEDs light up for whatever drives you've got selected in the tree on the left side. This allows you to quickly see which drives are part of an array, or volume. Closing the ACU will reset the lights back to their default OFF state.

I don't think it's worth using this server in ANY situation right now. Even an entry-level modern $500 system will be more capable and robust. I'm not sure I understand the desire to use something for "non-critical functions" just because it's there. To answer your specific questions, though, Ultra 320 SCSI drives topped out at 300GB 15k RPM before SAS/SATA ...

From both the server spec sheet and the SmartArray 6i manual, the maximum HDD size is capped at 300 GB. While I think that this is not an hard limit, the fact that you had to use old Ultra320 disks (not newer SAS ones), let me think that you can not buy bigger disk at all. Regarding the supported disks, from my understanding HP controller have no problem in ...

I tried several times to install Ubuntu 14.04 LTS and 15.04 from a bootable USB onto a DL380 G7 without CD/DVD-drive. The installation looked fine, but every attempt to boot resulted in the dreaded ""Attempting to boot from hard drive C:" followed by a hanging system. I finally succeeded by defining the ISO as a virtual CD in the iLO and temporarily ...

Dude... you need to have working parts. There's a minimum number of fans required for that server to POST. You mention four fans. There are six slots. You probably only have one processor, which means that you need THREE running fans of FOUR to operate in order for the system to behave. At POST: o The BIOS performs an orderly shutdown if two or more fans ...

Fans show inoperative even though they run? Could be bad sensor or backplane. Obviously if "firmly inserting" the fan makes it run, even if temporarily, there is a bad connection or possibly a bad retainer/clip. One of the first things I do in our DC servers when something "fails" is reseat anything between the "bad" component and the motherboard ...

Ok, finally figured out what was wrong! Thanks to Chopper3 for pointing me in the right direction. The problem is that the firmware was too old for the Windows Server 2012R2 B110i driver. I had to upgrade the firmware using Smart Update Firmware DVD Proliant Support Pack v10.10 first, then I was able to run SPP to get the latest version. After all that, ...

Probably not. You've added a foreign component to the HP system. It can't be expected to work the same way as native parts. My experience with LSI controllers running the internal disks of a ProLiant server is that the disk LED activity is random or may not correlate to what's actually happening. But in the end, it really doesn't matter. It's worth noting ...

The controller will erase the disks if you do this the wrong way... Since HP Smart Array controllers store the array metadata on the actual drives, you can often move or relocate HP disk sets. However, there's some tolerance for drive displacement (slot reordering, etc). So if the drives are moved together, the RAID is usaully intact. If you start doing ...

Probably the safest thing to do would be to send them all to a company like Kroll OnTrack. They understand the on-disk format of HP's RAID. Since all of the drives are operational, this probably wouldn't be too expensive but you'll have to talk to the right rep to get them to understand what you want: identify and group, but do not recover. If you have ...

No, the Erase Utility does not delete itself. If you are having problems with Intelligent Provisioning, it can be reinstalled according to the instructions on page 72 here.

I've had similar problems on the same board. If you haven't provisioned Intel AMT yet. The problem is most likely that the autoprovisioning tries to connect to a provision-server outside your network. It's not default settings for Inte AMT and it isn't correct working so. Check your DHCP+DNS-server, and PKI-DNS field in MEBx. The solution is simple - you ...

You can download the latest version of the Java Runtime Environment (JRE) from java.com.

You need a newer version of your Oracle Linux... likely 6.6. The HP ProLiant DL380 Gen9 is much more recent than your operating system, so the storage drivers don't exist in your ancient Oracle Linux 6.4 installer.

Without more detailed logs it would be hard to tell exactly what is causing the problems. One approach would be to try to boot the systems with a recovery image and attempt to extract any OS logs related to the events. The OS logs along with the AMT logs and the Server/System Event Log(SEL) and Sensor Data Repository(SDR), which can be accessed through the ...

I searched HP's website... http://h20564.www2.hp.com/hpsc/doc/public/display?docId=emr_na-bpj02930#N10473 That is all.

It turns out, that the actual tape hardware was connected to the original server instead of the backup manager, it could not restore the backup unless I brought the original crashed server online. Thankfully I could do that, but I imagine, it could be quite problematic with other types of hadrware failures. Since I was unfamiliar with both the specific ...

Set the port on the HP switch to untagged for that VLAN. Assuming you are using the same HP switch to connect to the ASA, set the VLAN to tagged on the port connecting to your ASA Don't tag traffic on the endpoint.
