At random times while using a Dell T5810 Precision Workstation (Windows 10 Pro 64-bit) I get  a System Stop blue screen. The code is
DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL and the failed device is iastorb.sys.

A minidump file is attached.

The system reboots on its own. I've seen it maybe three times over the past couple weeks. There are no hardware or software changes I know of that were done just before this problem started occurring. (I just removed an internal SATA data drive and added a new external hard drive but this crash problem started before then.)

The hard drive configuration has two sk Hynix 1TB SSDs on a PCIe 3.0 x16 expansion card. Drives are NOT in any RAID configuration. There are no drives connected to the SATA ports on the motherboard. Intel Rapid Storage Technology Enterprise is installed on the computer.

The external drive (Western Digital Gold 4TB WD4002FYYZ) connects through a StarTech docking station to a rear USB3 port.

I ran the Intel Driver & Support Assistant and the Dell update checker. They say all drivers are current.

Device Manager shows no devices with problems. In System Information no problem devices are listed.

Do I need iaStorB and iaStorA?

Assuming I do need them, any suggestions how to troubleshoot this problem?

Thanks, Pete

Hi,
I've got 20+ Dell servers at remote locations for clients and I'd like to figure out a way how to monitor hardware events remotely. All the servers are Dell PowerEdge Gen 9 and newer and all have an iDRAC card. Most are running esxi 5.5+ with server 2012 on the VM's. I've got OMSA installed and Support Assistant Enterprise on the servers that are still under warranty. Basically I'd like something like Support Assistant Enterprise that will run on the out of warranty and older hardware. At this point I pretty much just need to know the status of the hard drives, firmware versions of everything and get some alert when something changes. Ideally I'd like a single window where I can monitor everything from. Any advice would be helpful or at least a direction to start looking into.

Thanks in advance
Perry

We have two identical Dell PowerEdge servers running WS2012 R2 set up as a cluster to a Dell PowerVault SAN.
There are 14 Hyper-V VMs occupying a little over 3TBs. As we are looking to expand the storage of the PowerVault,
I need a good backup solution for the VMs.

What is the most common and best way to backup these VMs?

Dell Inspiron 17 5748 replaced damaged screen with new OEM replacement.  Goes blank after Windows 10 boot.   Will work perfectly fine in BIOS setup.   Unable to determine why will not work after windows boot.  I need to use external monitor.   Tried pulling CMOS battery but did not help.

I want to know if I can monitoring my Dell switches using MIBs as a custom device or using SNMP v2.

Found this guide

https://www.cisco.com/c/en/us/support/docs/wireless-mobility/wireless-lan-wlan/117707-config-ngwc-00.html#anc4

But I have read that even using open standards. Sometimes Cisco Prime couldn't recognise the device.

Any experience with Dell switches?

I have encoutered a blue screen of death that comes with the stop code:Picture of the error code. The unit is a Dell Optiplex 960 running 2-4GB of RAM using Windows 10. I'm currently servicing the machine for a client but have yet to see this Blue Screen. Much thanks in advance.

P.S. Once the bar reaches 100% while the screen says error data is being collected: it goes through a restart loop and the loop terminates after 2 unsuccessful boots.

Managing Security Policy in a Changing Environment
Managing Security Policy in a Changing Environment

The enterprise network environment is evolving rapidly as companies extend their physical data centers to embrace cloud computing and software-defined networking. This new reality means that the challenge of managing the security policy is much more dynamic and complex.

Wireless keyboards seem to go to sleep and it seems to be with Dell Latitude XPS 15's.  Staff will be busy with paperwork or calls so when they try to type it doesn't type the first letter and doesn't matter what the first letter is when they type.  I have contacted Dell and they have no idea why the wireless keyboard and mouse have this issue.  I have update all drivers in device manager.  This is a Windows 10 x64 computer with quad-core and about 16GB memory.  Any of the replacement I've used work for a while and eventually fail to print the first letter of the first word.

Afternoon,

We have an issue with a meeting room setup:
Dell OptiPlex 3050 Desktop
Apple Magic Keyboard
Apple Magic Mouse
Philips Bluetooth Conference Speaker
Startech USB dongle

The issue is that there are major issues when we connect the speaker to the dongle.
The dongle refuses to work.
The keyboard and mouse connect fine.

By default can bluetooth dongles connect to more than 2 devices
There is no inbuilt bluetooth on the PC.
Do we need another bluetooth dongle? Do we then connect the speaker to the other bluetooth dongle?

Just looking to see if anyone has had a similar issue.

I have a Clear Cube Zero client with two DVI ports and 4 USB ports, a
Dell Precision T 3500 with two DP with 6 USB ports, and Two Dell P2715Q monitors each with one HDMI port, DP (in), DP(out), mDP (in)

I want to be able to have the keyboard, mouse, and both monitor work with the Zero Client and at least one or both monitors,  keyboard, mouse work with the PC

What type of KVM switch would I need to switch between the Zero Client and the Dell Precision and be able to share the mouse, keyboard, and monitors?

Hi again guys thanks for all your input previously.  I'll start again.  Starting with 3 sata I found Sata drive 00 was beyond repair, so I had no OS, raid 5. Repostioning the two remaining satas drives to 00 and 01 i installed esxi 5.5 which is stable, raid 0. Reclaiming 3 other sata drives (now a total o 5 drives) i'd now like to use all drives in a new esxi setup (probably losing the first esxi install), can you advise how to bring the extra 3 drives Online?
i'd like to use raid 5 so if a drive collapses again i don't lose all data in my new esxi build, the drives are all various sizes, 00-150Gb 01-150Gb 03-250Gb 04-80Gb 05-1Tb is this a viable setup?
thanks again all. steve.

How to find out the level of thunderbolt hardware support via a command line, or via a diagnostic utility.
Looking for anything that when run, will say something like, "Your system supports thunderbolt, etc, etc. and possibly gives more detailed hardware info.

This specially address a problem of detecting thunderbolt features on some of the newer Dell laptops, e7480/p5510/p5520.

I know that the e7480 has to be requested to have thunderbolt enabled for the USB-C port at time of purchase, but wondering if there is some type of diagnostic like Speccy that just tells you the hardware supports thunderbolt tech.

Sorry for sounding like I don't know what I'm talking about--cause I don't, lol

I have an older server Dell Power Vault NF 500.  It was running Windows 2003 storage server.  A week back the drive holding the OS failed.  There are two drives on one controller (C: drive)  and 3 drives on another controller.  The data is held on an array (Raid5) with three drives.  I simply want to get the data off the array (Raid 5) drive and onto a backup disk. I am guessing the two drives holding the OS were a RAID 0. How do I go about getting the server back up and not risk the drive with the data?  I can stick another drive in there and install an OS on the drive but will it see the data drive after?   Will the install leave the RAID 5 alone?

I have never had to do this in the past and I cannot afford to make a mistake.  I would love to get some advice and queue up a conversation with someone who has experienced this before.

Hello,
I am new to dealing with file server systems and hybrid solutions. My company was looking at a dell emc that was going to have functionality that would take files based on rules and push them to the cloud. This would leave a pointer in place so if an end user would ever need to do anything with the file they would not know it was in the cloud, it would just take a bit longer for it to download. Unfortunately this won't work in our position as the emc product would have to be used as a san or as a file server. We are using it for a hybrid approach.
I would like to continue to use aws for our cloud storage, but what is out there to automatically do what we are looking for? I know that you can backup data to the cloud but I would like to keep IT's involvement low as we are a small team for a larger company.

Hi,

I have an old Dell Latitude D630 laptop with Windows 10 installed.

The battery displays as 0% available (plugged in, not charging) when charger plugged into laptop.

When charger is plugged out from laptop, the laptop turns off.

I find that because the battery is always 0% that the laptop may be running slower.

Is there any setting to make the laptop run faster?

Thanks,
Robbie

Have a client with 5 sites, each running on a 6KVA APC smart UPS
Each site is equipped with routing and switch gear, plus 2 powerfull Dell Rack mount servers.

I need to configure theses HyperV host and VMs to gracefully shutdown when UPS has about 40% battery run-time left
Then once power resumes, I need hosts and VM to auto start up again.  This has to work 100% as the site are on average 200-300KM apart and the furthest site is 600KM away from my office.

Please will someone send me the exact parameters to get this right. All UPSs has an SNMP card installed and the hosts already have to Power Chute client installed and configured, but I need to confirm if my config is 100%.  Please i need the best practiced way to do this as well could you advise if the UPS should also initiate a Self shutdown in the event that input power fails.  

UPS and Current Firmware is as follows:

Model: Smart-UPS RT 6000 XL
Position: RACK
Firmware Revision: 452.18.W
Manufacture Date: 10/04/12

Scanning to folder SMB on Ricoh MP C2003 does not work. The logs only say: Output Failure or Timed Out. We have Dell Vostro laptop with Windows 10 Pro. It is the latest built on ly with built-in Windows Defender now. I have shared the folder in the root of C drive and allowed Everyone full access for both sharing and security options. We have UAC on. I tried setting up scanning to folder with IP address rather than hostname. I tried disabling Windows Firewall. I tried setting up scanning to folder on Ricoh with the admin username and password for Windows 10 laptop as well as Everyone without password for Windows 10 laptop. We have all the latest drivers on the laptop.

It does work on the other Windows 10 laptops although I did not set them up. I thought I mirrored all of the settings from the laptops which have it working. Not sure why it does not work. I do suspect SMB group policy changing in Windows 10 but wanted to ask first what you think.
