SBS2003 and HP RDX Storageworks
Posted on 2011-02-12
I recently installed an HP RDX Storageworks external backup onto my SBS2003 server. Since then, when I reboot, the server just sits at a black screen with flashing cursor. If I unplug the RDX, it reboot just fine. I've let it sit for a good 15 minutes at the blinking cursor - so if it eventually boots after that timeframe, I have not had the patience to wait and see.
If the server reboots after installing updates, this will be an issue as I am not onsite regularly.
Found someone with the same issue - it was suggested that the drive may be faulty. This is a new unit, and backups are running just fine so not sure that could be the problem?
I used to have an Iomega drive connected and never had a problem with that on reboot. Just started with the RDX.
anyone else seeing this problem? Any ideas?
