Getting the OS installed on a Dell PowerEdge T110-II. Should it be this hard?
Got a Dell T110-II server with PERC S300 Raid controller. It has 3 drives. I want 2 as a RAID 1 and 1 as hot spare.
It did not come with OEM OS. We got that through VL. I have the OS as an ISO. Put it on a Zalman device and boot off the ISO. Asks for the license key and I enter it. then for installing, it 'doesn't see any drives'.
I look at the Dell support site for S300 drivers and don't see any? There's files for OpenManage but none of those on the website that I see are bootable and the only Open manage disk they sent with the server says 'this is not a bootable DVD'.
What shoudl I be doing from the S300 BIOS vs. elsewhere and what files and apps should I be using to configure the RAID and hard drives?
