Proliant 1600 Sticks Initializing Raid Controller
Posted on 2004-09-13
Didnt really know what section to list this under, so here we go....
We have an old Proliant 1600 with a Compaq 3200 Raid Controller in it (4 drives). Now the weird thing is that when booting up it will stick on Initializing the Raid controller and none of the drive lights light up. Now if I power it down and power it back up it sometimes will work fine....
Now, I tried re-running smart start again today and starting off from scratch so I could turn this into a small test server, however smart start will get stuck in the Hardware configurator at Saving Settings.
Don't really know whats up with this server.. this issue just started happeing.. i re-seated all the drives & put the Raid card into a different PCI slot but its still does it.
