I have a Dell PowerEdge R320 with a PERC H310 controller
I did a CNTL-R at boot created a RAID1 with two SSD drives and installed Server 2012 R2 Standard
This RAID1 is two 256GB SSD drives, just a couple minutes and the RAID was done and ready

Now I added 6 SAS drives 1.8TB
Did a CNTRL-R and I'm building a RAID5
This is taking a very long time, I started at 1:00 pm and 2 hours later it's at 16%
does this sound normal?
thanks

I have what looks to be like a potentially serious problem on a Dell T7600 that is configured with Windows 8.1.  I have the speakers set up with a bluetooth USB adapter and a bluetooth speaker.  Last week that speaker stopped working, so I have no local sound.  On a lark, I decided to connect to the affected computer from Chrome Remote Desktop, and what is immediately clear is that the sound driver is playing continuously in a loop and never stops.

I tried this sequence:

1) Reboot computer
2) Connect to computer from Chrome Remote Desktop.  So far there is no sound.
3) Login.  So far there is no sound.
4) Start an application ( a stock price monitor ) that triggers multiple alarms, each with an associated sound.
5) Immediately after the first sound plays, the sound driver gets stuck in a loop and never stops.

The Windows System eventviewer is NOT loaded with messages.  I cannot find any error that corresponds to the looping sound driver.

How should I go about diagnosing this and fixing it?

I have several colleagues complaining that when they are on VPN - when they download something - the download stop in around 75mb.  It then gives a network error.  Users can resume the download - but again causing issues.

Is there a setting in Dell Sonicwall restricting this?

Pretty sure there is no GPO setup

Hi all,

i have some issues with iDRAC on our 13th Gen Dell PowerEdge Server.
the issue started after updating the iDRAC from older version (1.2.0) to latest version 2.41.40.40 or 2.50.50.50

issues faced:
1) Server hung at iDRAC initialization
2) or Server frequent reboot

the above symptoms are mostly seen in 13th and 12th generation PowerEdge and PowerVault server models of Dell

Hi,

I have SCCM 1706 running and manage about 20 Dell 7040 Micro desktops.

I would really like to set up OOB Management using AMT so that I can configure software updates to be installed over night i.e. SCCM can turn on the desktop at say 2am and install any software and updates etc.

I have installed the newly released Dell Command | Integration Suite for System Centre v5.0 which now includes the Dell Command | Intel vPro Out of Band.

I have SCCM 1706 installed on a Windows Server 2012 R2 Virtual Machine (Hypervisor is Server 2012 R2)

Every time I open the Intel vPro Out Of Band App on the SCCM 1706 server the Settings are lost - I do not know if this is correct? Intel vPro Out Of Band Settings
Intel vPro Out Of Band Settings Questions:
(1) Should the settings be remembered?
(2) Should (or can) the "Operating System User Account" be the Domain Admin Account
(3) Should (or can) the "AMT Administrative User Account" be the Domain Admin Account
(4) On the "Intel vPro Out Of Band Settings Indications Tab" what IP address should be in the "Listener IP Address" Intel vPro Out Of Band Settings Indications Tab
USB Provisioning
Intel vPro Out Of Band USB Provisioning
(1) The Password Section is the AMT Password? Default password for non-configured Dell AMT systems is just "admin"?
(2) Provisioning
(2i) User Consent: Shall I leave "Enable remote configuration of user consent policy" checked?
(2ii) Out of band provisioning: "Enable (will start "hello" packets immediately") - I assume I should check this

We had bunch of these come into my work.  I purchased one to bring home.  Before hand i had plugged it into a monitor at work and it came on just fine.  Brought it home and just got to plugging it in to reinstall a new copy of windows and no video will show.  I tried the VGA and the Display port.  It is not the cables nor the monitor.  I removed battery to clear CMOS and tried again, still nothing.  As soon as i plug the power cord into it, it turns on before i can even hit the power button though which i have seen other pcs in the past do.  Anyone know these computers if they have a known issue that may cause this?  I should state im only working with onboard video as well.

I am using :
wmic csproduct get name,indentifyingnumber,uuid

I have tried bios updating to the most recent and version prior and reset the bios and re-installing windows server all to no avail.
I would appreciate comment on how I might resolve this or if indeed it is unresolvable.
Thanks,

I have an issue on a Clients Dell XPS 13 laptop after a BIOS update was completed.  At startup now, the blue Bitlocker Recovery screen comes up every time and we have to input the long recovery key that luckily we were able to get.  
I have read some forums which suggests we go into Control Panel and disabled the Bitlocker function, but they have Windows 10 Home on there and it does not show up in the Control Panel.  Some posts suggest that Bitlokcer does not come on Windows 10 Home.

I have disabled the USB boot option in the BIOS and no luck.

Can anyone else suggest how to resolve this so it does not keep asking for the Bitlocker Key at every startup??

Hello

Trying to achieve the above.  I see we need to use the dell command program.  

We have a deployment program that we can push out batch files or msi etc, so will use this.  

What's needed in order to change the settings remotely?  Can we use a command/batch file only, do we need the program installed on the machine?

With the HPs we had to push the HP install utility, copy edited config file local to the machine and run the command on the remote machine form the software we use.

The dell stuff looks like a PITA..

thanks

I am trying to install  Dell Laserjet 5210n on our school network server so it can be shared across all clients. I have assigned a static IP address to the printer and I can ping it. When I try to install the drivers I downloaded from the Dell website I get the attached error.
I have tried installing as a network printer using the TCP/IP port and also as a local printer also using the TCP/IP port. Either way I get the same result.
The Server on the network is running Windows Server 2008R2 and all of our clients are Windows 7 Pro.  I did try to install it using a PCL driver found in Windows and I was able to print one test page but after that the printer went offline and will not come back on line even though I can ping still ping it.

Please Advise.

Thank you!

I have a Dell Inspiron computer.  I have forgotten the password and it is running windows 10  * did not create a emergency USB disk NOR another account to access the computer.  I am looking for a way to just access the machine again.  There is little that I need on the machine and I have tried  F8, F11 and f10 during the boot process to try and do a recovery process  -- nothing has worked.   How can I get back into my machine EVEN IF I lose my data.   I have looked for software to gain access ((but don't want to waste money without getting exactly what I need  --IF that is the answer then something that I can use on 7,8, and 10 would be great)).  Any help would be appreciated.

The amount of bass on my computer needs to be cut in half. The voices are sometimes so bassy that they cannot be understood. Also, this same computer does not seem to give me the option of telling it that i am listening via headphones. It is defaulting on full range speakers.
computer: Dell M4800 Workstation / Laptop 64 bit
Opsys: Windows 10
Memory 8 gig
Sound card: Realtec (Net indicates that  I am using the latest driver)

Note: I am a patient in a Hospital that could delay me in responding in a normally timely manner. I cannot tell when I can be online due to a multitude of medical reasons. Please be patient if need be.

I just bought a new laptop, Dell Inspiron 15 7000, for my work. As I was testing everything, it was a physically working very well, so no complaints, however, when I tried to wirelessly connect to my server, it was giving me issues until I hardwired it. I was unable to ping any IP address (Local network or Google, Yahoo, etc.) and I notice that my virtual machines when run on this new laptop is doing the same thing no matter what OS (VMs running Ubuntu Server, Windows 10, Windows Server 2012, and CentOS)

Browsing through file explorer shows other PCs and servers connected, I can use Chrome, Firefox and IE to connect to a multitude of websites, however if I ping either the domain or the IP address... fails everytime.

Then I noticed that after I have installed Eve Online, it will not connect to the main server either, I ran all the port changes and fixes that I could possibly find online and everything fails.

This is a new issue that I have never experienced before, even as a network engineer, and I am completely flabbergasted at this. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

My company has over 180 employees who use centralized printers throughout our buildings. Specifically, we need to cut down on the number of print jobs that are never retrieved.

We are also looking at user education regarding wastage printing. What is another method of making users accountable for the print jobs they send to the printers?

We would also like to minimized the amount of legwork (i.e., touching every PC) in accomplishing this task. We presently use a mix of HP and Dell printers. We are on an AD domain as well.
 Any suggestion is welcome.
