    Re: Avaya 1152A2 DPU – which port is the uplink?

    Listen dude, this is a gig we’ve just inherited, we have nothing from the previous bunch, not even a blank piece of paper.

    And I know very well the seriousness of the situation, and it’s cause.

    So since you’ve offered nothing of value DON’T bother posting back eh.

    I’ll take your pointless response to mean you know f##k all about Avaya devices.

    Do me a favour and keep responses like that to your self.

    Read the question again.

    Whilst I appreciate that you went to the bother of replying, before answering try to understand the question first.

    Thanks guys

    Got out of it by using the /p and /t switches to create the defragged edb file on a drive which had enough space to take it.

    Thanks again

    Re: SQL Server upgrade failure (SQL Server 2005 Express Edition to SQL Server 2005)

    Hi

    Please close this call.

    SQL newbie error.

    I was running the setup.exe file from the tools folder instead of the servers folder.

    Doh!

    Re: SQL Server upgrade failure (SQL Server 2005 Express Edition to SQL Server 2005)

    Hi there Ossian

    I tired, as a test, to add some of the in the available options, just to see what would happen.

    After I select some (Connectivity Components, Management Tools, Business Intelligence Development) when I click next I get a message that says ‘None of the selected features can be installed or upgraded. Setup cannot proceed since no effective change is being made to the machine…’

    Which is, to me, odd, since I am running the upgrade off of SQL Server 2005 Standard Edition.

    These things are sent to test us, I guess.

    Thanks

    Re: SQL Server upgrade failure (SQL Server 2005 Express Edition to SQL Server 2005)

    Thanks for that, pal.

    Alas, it only demonstrates what should happen when upgrading.

    Unfortunately, it doesn’t work out like that for me, as per my original post.

    Strange though that when I run the upgrade, it doesn’t pick up that there is a SQL Server express edition install.

    Thanks anyway

    Re: Configure non-RAID disk into RAID 1 array without losing data/restoring

    Update:

    I came across this document:

    http://www.cs.uwaterloo.ca/~brecht/servers/docs/PowerEdge-2600/en/Perc4scdc/UG/bios.htm

    In the document there is the following chapter:


    Using a Pre-loaded SCSI Drive “As-is”

    note.gifNOTE: To use a pre-loaded system drive in the manner described here, you must make it the first logical drive defined (for example: LD1) on the controller it is connected to. This makes the drive ID 0 LUN 0. If the drive is not a boot device, the logical drive number is not critical.

    You may have a SCSI hard drive that is already loaded with software. The drive may be a boot disk containing an operating system. If so, add the PERC device driver to this system drive before you switch to the PERC 4 and attempt to boot from it. Perform the following steps to use the PERC 4 controller as a SCSI adapter for such a drive:

    1. Connect the SCSI drive to the channel on the PERC 4 controller, with proper termination and target ID (TID) settings.
    2. Boot the computer.
    3. Start the BIOS Configuration Utility by pressing .
    4. Select

    Configure—> Easy Configuration.

  • Press the cursor keys to select the pre-loaded drive.

    [*]Press the spacebar.
    The pre-loaded drive should now become an array element.

    1. Press .

    You have now declared the pre-loaded drive as a one-disk array.

    1. Set the

    Read Policy and Cache Policy on the Advanced Menu.

  • Exit the Advanced Menu.

    [*]Highlight Accept and press .
    Do not initialize.

    1. Press and select

    Yes at the Save prompt.

  • Exit the BIOS Configuration Utility and reboot.

    [*]Set the host system to boot from SCSI, if such a setting is available.



    The intersting line is:

    1. Press .

    You have now declared the pre-loaded drive as a one-disk array.

    I wonder then, if the pre-loaded scsi disk is now configured on the perc raid controller as a ‘one-disk array’ can this one disk array be morphed into a raid 1 configuration by adding another disk?

    Anyone done this?

    Cheers

Re: Configure non-RAID disk into RAID 1 array without losing data/restoring

My apologies.

With so many different servers to manage spread over various customer accounts, I wrote ‘HP DL’ instead of ‘Dell PE’.

Re: Configure non-RAID disk into RAID 1 array without losing data/restoring

Hi guys

Here are the server/raid details:

Current Server

Dell PowerEdge 1850

SCSI Adapter

LSI Logic PCI-X Ultra320 SCSI Host Adapter (embedded)


Disk

Maxtor Atlas10K5_73SC 68.37Gb




Target Server

Dell PowerEdge 2850

PERC 4e/Di Raid Controller




Do Dell raid controllers offer the option to build an array around an existing data disk?

Thanks

Re: P2V failure: Warning (13210) Timeout occurred while waiting for VM integration se

Hello Sorin

Thank you for responding.

1) Yes, exactly the same, both are Windows Server 2003 Std Edt SP2. The server that P2V’d perfectly ran Forefront CS, the server that continues to fail runs CRM

2) Been through the logs repeatedly on both the target box and the Hyper-V server, nothing helpful found.

Checked the hardware, all ok.

The guy from the MS forums says it must be connected with the configuration of the VM – but what is wrong I cannot fathom. I basically selected the same settings as before, all bog standard stuff.

I had hoped there would be a tool available from MS which would help diagnose the fault, but alas no.

Real challenge, this one, I guess especially since Hyper-V is a fairly new product.

Cheers for now

in reply to: SCE 2007 target computers stuck in Pending Management area #310215

Re: SCE 2007 target computers stuck in Pending Management area

Hey there

This was all my fault, not SCE’s!

Sorry Microsoft!

The server had suffered from stop errors for a two days, I installed Debugger for Windows to read the crash dumps, which highlighted the HP nic driver.

I replaced the driver and broke the team, since only one card was patched (again, I didn’t build this server).

Anyway, when the server first rebooted after the nic team was broken, the card picked up an ip address from dhcp. I quickly changed this to the static address, but the bugger created a host record in dns pointing to the dhcp address, not the correct server address.

Once I corrected this, all pc’s in the pending queue disapeared.

Total plonker, me.

Re: SCE 2007 target computers stuck in Pending Management area

Thanks for replying pal

None of the pc’s have the windows firewall running.

Weird thing is that some of the agents, I uninstalled from the console, which worked successully, but when I go to reinstall the agent on the same computer, the install just sits in the Pending Management area.

Had so much bother with SCE 2007 – what an utterly dire product.

Shame on Microsoft for selling this.
