Im trying  to boot the server after a power failure this morning and its doing something different. When I try to boot it its starts checking the NVRAM and then a new screen with the following text:

Novell netware firmware: V1.00
via PCI 10/100 Fast ethernet adapter

Analizing netwaork media Type

RPC-ROM-FFC: 1sec.....

And it stays counting and erver wont start.

Please any suggestions what could be wrong

Your server doesn't know where to boot from anymore and it is stuck on the LAN...
What is the status light of your Hard Drives....
You definitely need to go to the RAID setup and check the consistency of the drives or it depends on your app, you can do a repair...
Hope that helps.

What is the brand and model????
