We have an HP DL380 Proliant G4 that is not bringing up a display or post. I have seen this problem on EE a couple of times here:
I have tried the posts advice by changing CPU, memory, riser card, cleaning it out etc but it is still having the same symptoms – powers up, no video or post.
We have an identical working test server that is not being used so I have used parts from that in the above testing.
The configuration of the problem server is as follows:
2x Scsi Drives that are mirrored containing O/S
1x Scsi controller card that is attached into an array where some data is stored
1x Scsi controller that is connected to a tape drive
My question is this:
If I remove one of the mirrored drives from the faulty server ( from slot 1 ) and place it into the identical server ( with no other discs ) and power on will that server boot windows?
If it does and I then replace the riser card containing the other Scsi adapters would that in turn pickup the external array data drives?
Or is there any other suggestions regarding getting the faulty server back online?
Any help would be great!
Thanks in advance,
