I have dell poweredge 2850 that the RAM slot has broken and I canned get the server to boot, it just beeps no RAM. I have tried swapping RAM and replacing with new RAM but nothing fixes it. I can occasionally get the server to boot for a minute or two before the server blue screens with "Memory Parity Error." The 5 hard disks are in RAID 5 and functional, but the server is not.
PROBLEM: I need to recover the data from the RAID 5 configuration. How do I do this?
I have access to another functioning 2850 but it has a 6 disk configuration. So, what do I do to get the disks to boot up on the functioning server? Ultimately I just need about 10 gig of data. Ple
