Question about Dell PowerEdge Computers & Internet

Open Question

Running Dell r815, 48 core, 256g Ram, 2 - dual channel 8g hba, 8g path all the way to SAN (pooled solid state, 450g, 1T disk). Installed and fully patched Windows Enterprise 2008r2 server and SQL Server 2008r Enterprise. After reboot, everything is running great. Then as the week goes on, there is a degredation of performance. There are heavy ETL loads at night. Heavy reporting during the day. We have all appropriate maintenance jobs (indexes, stats, ect) running daily with logs and full backups. Everything across the board takes longer each night and each day. By the end of the 7 day ETL week, the Saturday processes run 2 to 4 times longer. Reports run 2 to not returning. All we have to do is cycle the SQL Server services. Processing goes back to normal. We manage over 1500 instances on 1400 servers. We have other large dell r900s and r810's. This is our only 48 core dedicate SQL Server instance. Joseph Devereaux First Niagara Bank, N.A.

What is your connectivity to the SAN? fiber or iSCSI? Have you checked the management tools to see if there are any errors on the data paths? If using iSCSI and the SAN and server are in the same network segment, make sure the default gateway is empty for the iSCSI connection. Look at the routes on the server to make sure the traffic is not leaving the subnet through a router and back to the SAN, and vice versa. If fiber then you'll have to use the tools given to check for errors. Ken

SOURCE: Automatic database backup

These instructions are for Microsoft SQL Server Standard.
Go into the Enterprise manager.
Select your server on the tree view on the left. Go all the way down to "Management" and click on "Backup".
This will allow you to set up the backup.
Check the box called "Schedule". This will allow you to select a schedule for automatically performing the backup.
Good Luck.

SOURCE: Dell PowerEdge 2900...USB Keyboard and USB mouse

Is it possible this is where the problem started? When updating the controller...

http://support.microsoft.com/kb/906690

I was going to suggest opening event viewer either through Administrative Tools or bye typing eventvwr in the Run dialogue box. You will see one column on the left and one on the right. The one on the right shows errors and performed operations alike, when you click on an area in the left column.

You'll see an "Event" tab if you scroll to the right after clicking on "System" in the left. Any red Xs mean error. Double click or right click & select "Properties" to read the error. Highlight and type Ctrl+C to copy the text in the Description area and search Google for an answer, careful where you click, reading the address for the location of the site, looking primarily for the support.microsoft.com website for solutions.

Go to the keyboard & mouse manufacturer's website and download any new drivers. You might also find legitimate drivers on the Dell site for the Host controller, USB controller & mouse/keyboard. Make sure they're for your system/model/components. Reboot if asked and allow divers to install.

My vote...

You can then/also try uninstalling the Keyboard & mouse drivers and rebooting to safe mode, then uninstall the Controllers themselves. Reinstall on reboot to normal Windows and try using only certified drivers... or drivers that came with the mouse/keyboard or that you downloaded as instructed earlier.

Uninstalling and then reinstalling iIMHO is the best method rather than updating. Sometimes drivers overwrite and become corrupt.

Try to only stick with microsoft & Dell (your manufacturer) for driver updates. Programs that connect to sites and download new drivers for your system often install incorrect updates. Even if your system has a say, Toshiba AB-01234-YX, the driver for the component might not be written the exact same way Dell/the computer manufacturer has written it. You also do not know the programmer and cannot honestly say you can trust them when installing and asked "are you sure" if it is not digitally signed.

HTH.

A disk read error has occurred when booting a Dell PowerEdge 2950. Passes all diagnostics. Will run chkdsk from CD. Raid battery was degraded at last reboot but all disks showed to be fine. Raid 1


what OS?
what disk?
no raid card stated, no array stated, no type of array stated.
One can put 100s of RAID cards in this server.
both raid cards or HBA cards,(forJBOD)
i can fix any server, but first need to know what is in the box first
you meant the boot disk has errors, right,? boot.
that would tell me the disk IS BAD.
but if and ARRAY , that means you must run SMART tests
on the disks, 1 by 1 to find the bad disk.
if smart shows its bad, or weak its for sure BAD.
on real servers. the server sends you email, (set up right)
telling you disk 3 in a RAID 6 is bad, replace it now.

are you running hardware or software raid, or HBA or
fake raid cards, (4 classes there.!)

the base system new has.
4 port SAS 5/i integrated SAS controller (no RAID_
and optional, from DELL , news.
Optional PERC 5/i integrated SAS/SATA daughtercard controller with 256MB cache,
PERC 4e/DC, PERC 5/e adapter

or any of 1000s of other aftermarket cards there.
I run LSI 9361s (with MSM appl loaded)
this card will tell you what disk failed every time no kidding.
so will the PERCs setup correctly
the PERCs and my LSI and my HP raids
all have installed monitors for the RAID ,a program that runs full time all the time, and reports errors , many ways,
did you load that first and use it? seems not.
as no mention of SMART at all.
good luck.
Im not sure the names on DELL , MSM like software.
ah its OSA
never run a PERC lacking this APP. or you can not keep the server on line,.

I think the problem lies with your dual core processor. Under Windows XP, these processors need to have the correct drivers installed to fully take advantage of the fact that they have 2 cores.
Try downloading and installing these drivers from the AMD website:
Dual core optimizer Processor driver
As always, back-up your important data, and preferrably create a restore point before going through with driver updates.
The radical choice is, obviously, to reformat using your own disk, as this should install correct drivers for all your hardware.

Hi there, You apparently don't have downloaded all drivers and software needed. I'd go to: http://www.sun.com/products-n-solutions/ hardware/docs/Network_Storage_Solutions/Adapters/index.html. Install the software in the following sequence: 1. Download and install Sun StorEdge SAN Foundation software 4.2 packages and patches. See Sun StorEdge SAN Foundation Software 4.2 Installation Guide, 817-1244. 2. Download and install the appropriate JNI 2 Gb PCI Single and Dual Port HBAs packages and patches. See JNI 2 Gb PCI Single and Dual Port Fibre Channel Host Bus Adapters Release Notes, 817-2260. Good luck!
