Hi, I have a Dell PowerEdge R710. The HDD in the system have 32mb cache. Would it be okay to replace them with HDDs that have 64mb cache? HDDs are same speed and transfer rate.

Hello here is the homepage:

Yes, that will be okay.

But a SSD harddrive is much faster, than the old mecanical one.
I know they are a little more expensive, but you will see a speed improvement, you have newer seen before.

Good luck

SOURCE: Does Dell PowerEdge 4600 Server support DVD ROM

I am working on one of these now and yes, it should boot from DVDROM. Be aware that it is a notebook style drive and there are no onboard IDE or SATA controllers, so once the drive dies you're in for a wallet hit. Same goes for the floppy drive which is integrated with the DVDROM. Even worse, the presence of the broken floppy usually means a USB floppy drive won't help when loading windows drivers at install time.

Problem to install poweredge r710 can nor detect sata hard disk


That is an impressive piece of kit. Is it under warranty ?
You should probably have it professionally serviced but you can always check whether it detects a known good drive. You can also test the suspect drive in another system.
Before you do anything ask yourself: What changed last (or recently)? There find you will that which disturbs the force.

Make sure that the connectors are all fully inserted. This means both the power and the data cables. Try different cables and a different power plug.

ok you will need to get the windows 2003 drivers for your raid controller and put them on a floppy disk. when you first boot off the cd you will see a prompt to press f6 if you need to install any additional drivers. insert the floppy disk and select which driver you wish to load.
you should be able to see the hard drives now to partition/format.

Beeping PowerEdge 1300


When a Dell server beeps in every 3-5 second that mean it comes from Raid controller.
Dell calls PERC Controller.
It usually reason of a disk failure.

Install open manage server administrator on your server.
See which disks are failed ?

Try to run Power edge diagnostics on the failed disk.
If it passes the test reseat the disk.
if it fails disk has to be replaced with a new one.
If passes the quick test, reseat the disk and update disk + perc firmware and driver to the latest level. that will solve the problem!!

99% beeping comes from perc controller because of a failed HDD

cheers

Hi satti73,
I need you to explain your problem a little more clearly.
I think you are saying that when you press the ON/OFF you get a display? What is the display that you get? How old is this machine? What other events have taken place leading up to this problem. Do you get and error messages on the monitor? DO you get any sort of sound emitting from the server when you press the ON/OFF butoon?
