May be worth reseting the bios using the on-board jumper.

You'll need to load the SCSI hard drive controller driver.

This needs to be reconfigured again. My suggestion is to call DELL again so that things happen they can still able to do the replacement of the hard drive.

if the system has no redundant power supply.
basically you will need to replace it with the same make and model from Dell or a working 2nd hand model.

Need to increase the hdd size in a dell poweredge 1600sc with raid 1


You will not be able to increase the hdd size of a raid array, it's size is set. If you need more storage, you can add additional drives ( either in raid or standalone ) and use the new drive(s) for storage, but the original array will remain unchanged. The other option is to back up all of your data, install new drives and create a new array.

NO HARD DISK FOUND DELL POWERDGE 1600SC


Is the HD SAS/SCSI/SATA on a raid controller?

If so you need to enter the RAID config (not the bios, but there will be a RAID config option during the boot process CTRL+M I believe.. but it will say on screen.) Then you need to set up the raid config, then initialise, then the drive will be detected for loading the OS.

Either that or the drive(s) shafted.

What sort of disks are you using?

Wont boot says array controller wont start and no bios dell power edge 2500 server


Sounds like the RAID controller has failed. I would replace this first as RAID controllers are less expensive than replacing the system board, or the server as a whole.

Suggested: PERC 5i (RAID 0/1/5) or PERC 5iR (RAID 1 or 0 only)

Our 1600sc dell server is beeping continuosly.


Check the PowerEdge Raid Controller for parity problems. Sounds like the status on the physical volumes participating in a RAID array has been degraded.

Loud beeping from a drive is usually an indication that an invalid drive array member has resulted in a degraded logical volume.

If you were counting correctly, you had at least three drives - most likely participating in a RAID-5 setup. The array might have been rebuilt with one bad drive. But it sounds like you've got two corrupt physical volumes in the array. And that's not good.

Hope you've got a backup!
