The new Dell T440 server with PERC H740P RAID controller is only showing 4GB for cache memory size.

Does Dell have incorrect advertising on their website? The website says 8GB for cache memory size.

I have an old dell r710 server with an embedded hardware RAID controller. This is to be a test box, it only has 1 1TB drive in it. I am unable to install an OS on this machine. I suspect that I must create a RAID which means I need another hard drive. Is this true? Also when I boot to system manager it states that no virtual disks have been configured

If the Dell T440 server has 4 x 4TB 512n drives in RAID 10 with PERC H740P RAID controller and 3 years later you need to replace a failed drive but you cannot source any 4TB 512n drives, can you replace the 4TB 512n drive with a 512e drive that is the same size or larger than 4TB?

I already have a "Server Room" temperature device that
automatically emails and calls me when the TEMP goes
above 75 degrees, allowing me to fix whatever
AC issues I might have.

What "Automatic Shutdown during Overheating"
features can I setup on my Windows 2012 Server,
Dell T630 so I don't have to worry about
the below happening ?

Maybe some type battery backup that automatically
cuts off the power supply after the room reaches 90
degrees, I do not need it to GRACEFULLY shutdown,
it can FORCEFULLY shutdown if needed

 1. server room AC fails, internet fails, but power
    is still on, room goes to 90 degrees, but I never
    get emails and calls since my "Server Room"
    temperature device cannot connect to the INTERNET

 2. I get automatic email at 2am on Saturday morning,
    but cannot drive the 40+ minutes to work to manually
    shut down the servers since it is ICEY outside and my
    home VPN internet connection is down so I cannot
    remote in to shutdown the servers

Does anyone have any idea on how to speed up the connections? I have a few people that their internet speed slow down to 1 tenth of what their speeds should be. The laptops are Dell Latitude 7480's

Hi
I'm deploying sonicwall cert from a firewall to all my windows clients.
The certificate has been distributed by GPO.
I'm having a problem with java apps (idrack) which can't connect.
I've imported this to my java store but the same issue appeared.
Eventually I will need to distribute this to all my Win and Mac clients.

Hi - hoping someone can help - We have a Dell Poweredge 110, RAID 1, Server 2012. We rebooted the server this morning and it came up with a message (see attached pic) about "Integrated RAID exception detected: Volume (HD1:079) is currently in a state DEGRADED - Enter the Dell 6gbps SAS Ctlr Configuration Utility to investigate!" First off, how do I get into the controller when it boots? Second, I'm going to pick up a 500gb HD, but need to know the best only way to install the drive (and to tell which one is degraded), is it hot-swappable? Do I just take out the hard drive and put the new one in? If I need to go back into the controller, do i need to add the hard drive there? I of course want to get this server back online without screwing up the RAID config. ANY help with this process would be appreciated!

Got a dell laptop from 2008. it doesn't boot.  Took out the hard drive.  put it in external dock to a win 10 machine.  Made 'unusual' scratching noises and an E and F drive came up. Couldn't browse them.

Crystal Drive info didn't see the root drive.

I put it in the freezer overnight.  

No scratching noice noise now - I can browse the recovery partition.  Windows shows an F partition but can't browse it / click on F and windows says F:\ is not accessible the parameter is incorrect.

Any thoughts short of a clean room type of service?

install it internally to a PC?
Booting in linux?

Crystal Disk info data is attached - takes a few minutes after clicking on the drive to get info

Windows disk manager says F drive is RAW.  E drive (recovery partition) is NTFS Healthy

I guess a partition recovery software.

VIDEO0021.mp4The machine is taking quite a while to start up (15 minutes) and once fully booted it freezes. It has six hard drives but as you can see in the attached video only one of them is actively blinking. Until I rebooted the one that is actively blinking was cycling orange and green indicating a predictive failure.
In general I am not sure what the problem can be. I am able to ping all the virtual servers on the machine but I cannot remote into them or see them on the desktop because it is frozen.

On a Dell Equallogic SAN, we have two VMWare ESXi Hosts and each have one clustered Win2016 servers, with SQL2016.  All had been working fine, but now get the attached error, even though both servers are connected to the SAN volume via iSCSI.

Any ideas where to look?  Please note that the servers are connecting on IP address to the SAN, not on CHAP.

Thanks

Hi

Hoping someone can help in a hurry. Just taken on a server consolidation and found a failed disk this weekend.

I really need this to run production for a few more weeks while we are migrating to new kit. It is out of warranty and I can't quickly find an exact 1TB Enterprise SATA 7.2k drive to replace it with.

I have a 2TB Enterprise SATA 7.2k from a different manufacturer. Can I swap this with the failed disk and have it rebuild onto the new 2TB disk (I realize I lose space but that is not a concern)

Any issues or gotchas I should know about? normally I would prefer to mirror two two of the same (I would gone with a higher raid in the first place...) but if this get me out of trouble it will all go on a new storage array in a while.

Alright, this is probably a silly question, but I do not necessarily know the answer.  

I have a Dell PowerEdge 2950 (yes, ancient, I know) with 2 E5405 Intel Xeon Processors (2 ghz) and 12 GB of RAM running Windows 2012 R2.  

I also have a Dell Optiplex 330 (obviously, it, too is ancient) with a Core2 Quad Q9550 (2.83 ghz) processor and 8 GB of RAM running Windows 7 64-bit.  

I need to stream video with one of these two machines.  Which one is better?

Aloha -

Very condensed version of my problem. The BIOS of all of our vmWare hosts show a time of UTC 0. We are UTC -10. We started using a DR product called Zerto which looks at BIOS time when booting a DR'ed VM. As a result, times on VM's are 10 hours ahead. Resetting time on BIOS doesn't stick leading us to believe it may be a time zone issue. A friend said OpenManage may be a way to resolve this. But unfortunately none of us have experience with OpenManage. My perception of OpenManage is that it's used to set up a server but not tweak settings..... Any guidance would be supremely  appreciated.

Mahalo,

The hard drive went out on this pc and im having to reinstall everything. The pc had a windows 8.1 license but was upgraded to Windows 10. To reinstall do I have to install 8.1 or will take a Windows 10 install and activate with a Dell Windows 10 Disk?

I bought a refurbished dell r720 with 16 - 600Gb sas drives.  It came configured with one single RAID 5 volume.  What are some suggestions for volume and RAID level.  I plan on using as a Windows 2012r2 host for Hyper-V.

I am having an issue with our Idrac connections to teh Dell Open Manage plug in for vCenter. I have a seperate vlan for idrac's for 8 hosts. I am able to ping the idrac's IP on VLAN 300 and its gateway. I can connect from other vlans using the WUI. But, when i try to run the Inventory Scan for the Dell Open Manage tool, they all fail to connect to idrac's.  The credentials are all correct as i am able to get to the idracs from a browser. Has anyone experienced issues getting DOM to connect?  The DOM virtual appliance is on a different VLAN 100, but when creating connection profiles, it can detect esx hosts that are on a different vlan 200.  

Any thoughts are appreciated.

I have scoured the internet looking to download this driver for a Dell Inspiron 6400. Every site I hit wants me to buy some download. Is there not just one spot where I can go download the driver to a flash drive and be done?

Aloha,

I am trying to change/save time in a Dell R710 BIOS. One problem - there is no option to save my change.
I'm stumped. Mr. Google isn't being too helpful either.

Hi All,
I recently setup a Dell Precision Tower Workstation with 2 X 4TB conventional hard drives RAID 1 managed by an Avago RAID controller. After 1 week of use, My client is not satisfied with the speed and wants SSDs and willing to pay for 2 x 4TB SSDs.

My thought to change to the SSDs on the Workstation is:
1. Clone the OS using Macrium, Acronis etc to a single 4TB SSD
2. Remove the conventional Hard Drives
3. Install the cloned 4TB SSD and the 2nd blank 4TB SSD
4. Boot the PC and let the RAID rebuild itself

Will this process work? Any foreseeable issues?

Hello all,

So I have a new Dell Precision it is 32GB Ram, i7 4 Cores 8 Logical Cores.   I am setting up a development VM using Visual Studio and many other developer installs.   Looking for recommendations for VMWare Workstation Pro 14.   My selections would be RAM, Under processors it shows Number of Processors, Number of Cores per Processor.   I have selected Virtual Intel VT selection I think that was correct and set network adapter to bridged.   Needing to know best suggestion for the cores settings and Ram.   Also how much disk space I set it to 60GB for now I have 1TB on the host.

I have a Dell server running 2012R2. The server has 4 Virtual disks. The 2 I am asking about are just 0 and 1 which are setup using the same 2 physical hard drives. I did not set this up. The other virtual are 1 raid 10 with 2tb of storage and another raid 1 with 538GB of storage. The user added 2 additional 538GB hard drives which have not been activated yet. They want to expand the storage of the E:\ partition. I am trying to do this in the easiest but best recommended method possible. We will complete a full backup prior to doing anything. Should I create a new partition with the 2 new drives and just attach them via windows to the E:\ Partition? Because of how these 2 physical drives were split up I am not sure how to do this with the least amount of user interruption and/or downtime.

Virtual Disk 0 [ Raid 1] (Contains C:\ partition (80GB) and G:\ Partition (200GB)
 - Physical Disk 0:1:0 (538GB)
 - Physical Disk 0:1:1 (538GB)
Virtual Disk 1 [Raid 1] (Contains E:\ Partition (358GB)
 - Physical Disk 0:1:0 (538GB)
 - Physical Disk 0:1:1 (538GB)

Virtual Disk 2 [ Raid 10] (Contains D:\ parition (2.1TB)

Virtual Disk 3 [ Raid 1]
