1.HP Proliant DL580 G5.
Is there anybody that have a server like that in object?
I need to share some impressions.
2.HP Proliant DL380 G3 slow shutdown
I've a Proliant DL380 G3 rackmounted server running on dual Xeon processor,
2GB RAM and 4x36GB HD configured in RAID 5 and running Win Server 2003. My
problem is, whenever I tried to shutdown the system, it takes ages ..
exceeding 15 minutes each time. The system was setup by HP engineer during
the installation and I don't think it was that slow. I know that RAID 5
will slow down the shutdown process, but when it exceeds 15 minutes ..
there should be something wrong with it .. BTW, the server has Trend Micro
Server Protect running if that a matter. TIA for any advice given.
3.HP Proliant ML 370 G3
I just bought a new Proliant ML 370 G3. It came with 2-256 ddr memory
installed. HP had a free memory upgrade promotion for 2-256 memory
sticks, for a total of 1024 Mb memory. 2-256 memory was already
installed and the extra 2-256 sticks where packaged and boxed. The
original 2-256 memory chips are installed in slots A1,A2. I put the
extra 2-256 memory chips in the next available slots B3,B4. When I
power on the server I get the lovely continous beep. I take out the
extra 2-256 memory chips and the server boots wonderfully showing 512
memory. I take the original memory out and put in the extra memory in
slot A1, A2, The server boots fine. I add the original memory in
slot B3,B4 and I get the nice contiuous Beep. All four memory chips
are the same, and Identical. both work as 1 pair 2-256 but not
together as 2 pair 4-256 for 1024 total. Is there a setting in the
bios I have to enable for adding extra memory? all the manuals just
say to plug and play so to speak. No mention of jump setting or
anything. I would welcome any suggestions on this, before I call hp
4.Proliant DL380 G3 server questions
I just got a surplused DL380 G3 (3.06GHz) but I'm not sure if it's
working as it was damaged in shipping. It was advertised as "no OS" so
I can't tell from network activity if it's actually running.
It has a RILOE II card in it, but I get no video output on either the
RILOE or the internal VGA adapter, even when I pull the RILOE. It does
seem to power up, and if I pull one of the two 512MB DIMMs I get beeps
so I _THINK_ the main CPU is running.
Is there a way to reset the unit back to factory defaults, and should
I be trying to talk to it over the Ethernet interface in the RILOE, or
from a local console, or from the serial port? Right now I just see
nothing at all when I power it up, but it does seem to be going
through POST. It's kinda hard to tell for sure though because every
single peripheral in it is intelligent - for all I know, the main CPU
is dead and the RAID card and system health processor are running
their own diagnostics indepedently.
