HP 635199-421: HP DL180 G6, raid status
Hi all! I have two rack-mounted servers HP DL180 G6 with RAID1 (mirror) in them. The question programs can get raid status, diagnosis? And he with a GUI for the user.
I installed easy cd with "HP ProLiant series 100 management controller" and "HP ProLiant Smart Array SAS/SATA Event Notification Service for Server Windows 2003 and Windows Server 2008 x 64 editions. Is this all I need?
You can also ask your question on the Forum of Support Community Business Enterprise HP - DL servers section.

When a system starts, the virtual disk manager PERC S100 displays the status of the drives connected to the system. The indications may be, among others:
We have a T110 server with 3 connected hard disks. One is a virtual disk not RAID taking into the operating system (Windows Server 2008 R2). The other two disks configured in RAID 1 and contain only data. We want to replace data drives RAIDed with adults. We will not touch the drive no RAID OS.
The S100 said that the status of the existing RAID is 'NORMAL (R/W) '. When I replace hard drives in this table and configure a new RAID array with new drives, the status is "READY (R/W). Unfortunately, when the system starts, it gets stuck in a reboot loop, until I put the original disks. The only clue I have is this difference in the status of starting time of the RAID. There is nothing in the newspapers of the OS to indicate what could be the problem.
Anyone know the exact meaning of these status messages?
Uh,... I discovered. It is in Appendix B of the manual for the S100.
I am trying to reinstall my Toshiba Portege M400 146 provided with the original hard drive, but the recovery program will not accept that there is a record of hard work in the computer.
I know the drive works as I have used on other computers to experiment with Windows 7, etc and in the computer Toshiba windows 7 (always on the HDD) will also begin to start, but planting them.
The error message is that there is no record of hard work and the following text are in 2 command windows both with the title:
* Error screen 1: *.

I also tried with other drives and the same problem persists.
Anyone seen the same problem and found a solution?
Eventually the partitions that appear on the HARD disk is corrupted.
I couldn't install the OS on my laptop because the partitions have been confues up, I don t know why, but I couldn't format the HARD drive using the recovery disk.
Finally, I took the Windows XP disc and formatted the whole HARD drive and deleted all partitions on the HARD drive. Then I installed Windows XP by using the Microsoft disk.
After that, I made the recovery disc and installed the operating system using the Toshiba disc.
Then, it was possible to reinstall the OS.
Notes; The M400 seems supported RAID and therefore, you need to install the RAID driver first!
I have a Dell Power Edge 2900 with a Perc 6 / i controller version 1.11.82 - 0473. The display shows "E1810" fault on HDD 2 error and HARD drive 4. The two bad drives blink Orange. The controller is configured in raid 5 and displays the Raid status as offline. Under "VD Mgmt" 2 hard drives are missing. Under 'PD Mgmt' just 3 show online and the other two are not appear at all. 2 drives being missing, I can rebuild the table? Any help on how to proceed would be greatly appreciated.
No, with 2 hard drives in a RAID 5, data offline are gone. If none of the disks offline show never no status (that is, they are completely dead), then there is nothing you can do (except professional data, such as DriveSavers Recovery). You need one of the two disks to show a foreign State or offline.
Switch off, reconnect the two disks, turn it on and see if you see a status for the reader to the PD MGMT screen.
After the server restarts to install some new RDIMMs, data warehouses seem to have disappeared. RAID status for 1 on hard drives has been degraded (I decided to swap out all 3 disks for another series to see if it has changed anything), all 3 drives are online and happy after a RAID rebuild.
Once I connected the vSphere client, I noticed that the data warehouses were missing. Please see the attachment.
Then, I came across the option to add a data store. Which brings me to ask me if I keep the VMFS signature or create a new one?
Please see the image below:
This occurs when the host detects a new device of storage with an existing VMFS and a UUID file system already assigned to another storage device.
Usually, SAN-snapshots, which present one copy under a different ID LUN or modify manually the LUN IDS can trigger this. Don't know how this relates to the process of reconstruction of the RAID, but I usually do not expect this behavior.
In the case of SAN-snapshot, where you want to access the original and copy the store of data simultaneously, you will will the VMFS to be able to access both. Will treats it like a new data store, then the old VMs will keep being listed as orphans, and you need to browse the 'new' data store to add virtual machines in stock again.
But if the 'old' storage device is "definitely lost", which means that it will not re-apper with his old ID, you can keep the signature.
In your case, it won't matter too much, but I would opt for the preservation of the signature.
Not sure if anyone knows the 3ware cards, but they require the installation of the driver after installation in order to 3ware. work also provides a customized version of their "tw_cli" table setting utility that works on ESXi - http://3ware.com/kb/article.aspx?ID=15600
in any case, it works fine and all, but I noticed on every reboot reboot the binary tw_cli I copied in / on the ESXi server gets erased. I tried to leave in the House of the root (/) and also put it in the $PATHs root (/ bin, / sbin), but every time that I reboot it gets erased. I want to keep it there so I can always check my RAID status and also if I can write a nagios monitoring plugin. The only other thing I can think is to copy in the data store, but I prefer to know what is happening and have in the root file system. Any ideas? TIA-Jesse
Try this way:
CP - r YOURFILE_GOES_HERE/test
tar - xzvf oem.tgz
tar czvf - oem.tgz 'YOUR_FILE_HERE_AGAIN', 'FILE_CREATED_WITH_TAR '.
MV oem.tgz /bootbank
RM - r test
I tested here and the file were present for me after the reboot.

Small question. I want to determine if the RAID is completely disabled on my G20 (2 x 100 GB hard drives).
When I reinstalled the operating system from the recovery disks in the RAID set up, I chose the option of two independent hard drives so they now drive C & D with Mac on C and D data on.
If I go to the RAID console, it says "Can not get status", so I guess that the RAID is completely disabled but I wanted to just make sure.
Yes, you are right. You need at least 2 disks for a raid configuration to choose two independent disks made (off since raid), and your raid is not enabled. Good day.

I have now installed ESXi with a new hardware raid controller and its working perfect, so now I think how I can watch on my diske is OK or fail?
Can I someway check my status of heath on my controller raid and eg. get a mail if somtings are wrong?
My raid controller is LSI MegaRAID SAS 9271-8i - 128xHDD
Thanks for your time.
You must install the CIM providers for controller LSI/MegaRAID on the ESXi. But it seems that they are not yet available for VMWare 6.0, if you try the 5.5.
Check 'Software downloads'-> 'Management software and tools' article on above page LSI.
Thereafter, you need a workstation on the same subnet and you can install MegaRAID Storage Manager (MSM) and connect to the CIM provider.
Here's a KB on LSI for VMWare 5.0 for example tools, but you might find more / more detailed by Googling a bit descriptions: VMware KB: ESXi 5.0 Server Management Tool media LSI
HP z820 workstation,

I'm looking for raid management software
I suggest that you follow the steps listed in the HP Document: "Z - series Workstation detection and fixing a hard drive failure within the RAID Controller utility" in the URL: http://h20564.www2.hp.com/hpsc/doc/public/display?docId=emr_na-c04474148#N10829 you can find instructions how to enter each State type of RAID (Intel RST, 2308 LSI and LSI 9260-8i controller - It's the main RAID controllers usually associated with the HP Z820 workstation according to the particular configuration you ordered). Note that in most of the cases described in this document, you need to access the configuration of RAID controller during computer startup steps, by pressing CTRL + I (for Intel RST) or CTRL + C (for LSI 2308) or CTRL + H (by LSI 9260-8i). The installation program uses the RAID controller firmware and does not require to install complex inside Windows software, because it is done outside of the Windows operating system before starting. Find more details in "HP Z220 SFF, CMT Z220, Z420, Z620 and Z820 workstations maintenance and Service Guide" in the URL: http://h20628.www2.hp.com/km-ext/kmcsdirect/emr_na-c04205252-1.pdf , in the devices of annex b: Setup RAID (pp. 161-171) all types of RAID controllers that are relevant at the workplace Z820 are discussed.
So the winloader on vista ultimate 64 is somehow messed up, the raid 1 array works very well. After start of the vista installation dvd and going through the repair option, it does not see the operating system... ok, load the drivers... still nothing. Any ideas?
This question is a bit Advanced for Windows answers Forum. We don't often treat the problems involved RAID (especially those where access is denied by the normal methods). The above was my best effort, but being a RAID 1 system, it did not work as I had hoped. I recommend repost you in the Technet Forum:http://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/en-us/itprovistahardware/threads where people are a little more technical will be happy to help you.

I'm trying to give a sense of the info in OMSA 2.1.0 for a RAID 1 virtual disk on a server Poweredge 2850 + Perc 4e/Di. Array disk 0:0 died at an unknown point in the past. Info OMSA before replacing the drive:
We have added another 0:0 drive, he rebuilt successfully automatically and this is the current info:
So the State of the virtual disk RAID-1 is is more "degraded" and yet it is still showing only 0:1 Hitachi disk array and not the new 0:0 Seagate. How this should be interpreted? We also have another virtual disk raid 10 on this same server with discs model even who had also a drive down and replace this trained player the new Seagate drive not appearing in the table of Raid-10 list as expected. the difference was that the Raid array-10, the original disk was displayed in OMSA as 'impossible', while on RAID-1 above, no other player has been listed.
It should show the other disk. A few things to try:
- Refresh the screen VD
- Closing/re-open OMSA
- Stop/re-start services OMSA (DSM)
- Clear the ESM/Hardware log in OMSA
- Restart the server
- Updating system firmware (BIOS, ESM, PERC (first pilot), HARD drive)
All the foregoing may work, but it's probably caused by obsolete OMSA and/or firmware/drivers.
Goal: large, reliable Time Machine back-up.
(No purpose: archiving.) I do that separately on optical carriers per year, double copies, which goes off site. I understand that optical media can degenerate over time - even if some are marketed as "of archive-quality" - and therefore based on a cloud of archiving is the way to go but for now he takes too much bandwidth and I'm worried about security. I recently got a burner external blu - ray: exceptional.)
Question: can I use RAID for Time Machine if I connect by USB directly on my computer?
Issue 1: reliability external drive. This has happened twice that I bought a property, brand, large external hard drive and was prematurely fail at a difficult time. My local computer guru said "it happens" and is "unpredictable" and just buy a new one, most won't. Or, for better quality, get a NAS - network attached storage that can be attached, they have the temperature control, mine is a RAID 2 discs, so there is that the degree of redundancy - but not, I learn, protect against a corrupt Time Machine backup and that can happen, or power increases (although it is on a high-tech power bar) , or theft, etc.
Problem 2: using NAS, which I connected to a Terminal Airport Express via an Ethernet cable - if connected to the computer by WiFi - the Time Machine backup becomes a "sparsebundle" (set of files, in fact), encrypted file with password (?) drive access. However, this was work and I did a full restore of your data (no 'system') the other day with Migration Wizard when I got a new hard drive installed in my old iMac (also upgraded at the time of 10.9 to 10.11). It took over all night, but the wonder of wonders, it chugged along and finished and seems fine. (I have not checked tens of thousands of files individually!)
(My SIN explicitly supports Time Machine, and I checked that box in the configuration of the SIN, and it seemed to work.) I didn't have to leave the mounted drive. Time Machine found hourly and used invisibly in the background.)
Problem 3: I have rename my hard drives for some reason any and do not remember quite what its name was. I wonder if this is part of my problem (read more). But there is a method in Time Machine to 'Browse other discs of backup. " I was looking for a file that I kept outside my usual login "user" and so had not been returned when I used Migration Assistant for data recovery only.
However, when I do this, then nothing is there. I've learned that sometimes, with an encrypted sparsebundle, wireless backup, you will have to let Time Machine sit for a few minutes before the back-ups start to appear, but now, with my new hard drive (with a new name) and the new version of the OS, there is simply nothing; just 'today' that shows only my current hard drive status. Obviously, there was something, or Migration Assistant wouldn't have worked, but during the inspection of the backup via Time Machine, the file seems to be here (whatever_my_computer - name_was.sparsebundle), but it is empty.
If I just try to navigate in the Finder to the sparsebundle NAS Time Machine, I can find it but not to open it. Double click: nothing happens. It is not that I forgot to connection settings, this is what it do not ask me for them.
This happened to me twice and the first time was the day after archiving (luck and good planning) and I thought that it is a kind suddenly lucky, but now it happened again.
So, I tried a bit of searching and not found a clear answer to my question above. I do not see these links:
Of them, it seems that a NAS that has an explicit ability to Time Machine might work (mine did), but is not fully functional, not approved by Apple and is completely unpredictable. My limits are described above. (I work around them).
However, moving forward: I have this RAID 2 discs sitting around, seemingly more reliable than a drive external non-temperature controlled, and I wonder about the connection by USB directly on my computer. What is the downside of this? That is my question. Who will 'normally' work as a Time Machine backup external drive?
Another option is to get two large external hard drives and the value of Time Machine to switch between the two. I have not tried, but apparently it was possible for the last iterations little Mac OS X.
I have important data that requires careful management.
Thank you all,
I use a direct attached Drobo (it is a very easy to use RAID device).
I've always had problems with Time Machine on the network, so I stopped using it in this way. I've never had problems with the TimeMachine and direct-attached storage.
With the Drobo if a disk goes bad, I buy a replacement and hot it swap for the failed drive.
I have a problem with my blended Xserve RAID.
I see in RAID-Admin and configure it successfully (via Ethernet). Connect with our Xserve via Fibre Channel, but the XServe and XServe RAID do not detect each other.
The fiber on the Xserve channel LEDs are white on the Xserve RAID completely off and permanent.
RAID-Admin status of Fibre Channel: 'No connection (1 table)' with a red square.
If I try to open the utility of fiber channel I get the message: "card Fibre Channel is not found." Utility disk OS X can't, too.
I changed the card connector cable, and made several reboots. But each time the same thing: they do not detect each other.

Thanks for your help and sorry for my bad English!
Check if you have enabled LUN masking. To be able to see, you will need to download raid admin 1.5 not the 1.5.1
Have you also tried to use the other controller? Even if there is no disc in there, then it should appear in the preferences of fiber card system.
I have installed 2 new identical 500 GB hard in my Qosmio G30 with Windows XP.
The system works well, but the disc cannot be mirrored. Report of the Raid Controller is 'Normal Operation status.
This disk cannot be used for mirroring because it is outside the management of the RAID."
Who can tell me whether it is a disc error or is the drive of 500 GB to big for the toshiba with Windows XP raid controller?
> Can anyone tell me if it of a disc error, or is the drive of 500 GB to big for the toshiba with Windows XP raid controller?
Hmm. I m not very good, but it could be possible that the 500 GB HARD drive is too big for the mirroring of the mode.
But have you tried to change the mode in comforter Toshiba RAID you might find in Toshiba Assist-> Protect Fix & -> RAID Console
Check if you can switch to the mirroring.
By the way; RAID-1 is defined in the BIOS?
Usually, when you use RAID-1 configuration, the RAID is set to mirroring. In this case, the operating system recognizes the reduced ability to both hard drives (in your case, it is not important since you are using the two 500 GB HDD).
I can't understand how to configure my new HP Envy 700 - 200z for RAID 1. I ordered it with 2 matching records and told me before that I ordered that this device supports RAID 1. PC running Windows 8.1. Then I converted the readers to dynamic ND, but when I try to put readers to 'mirror' I find that option does not exist. I went into the BIOS and changed from readers (I think it was ACH or something close to that) RAID, but then the PC would not boot into Windows. So I changed the BIOS back, but don't know where to go from here. I don't know that I must be missing something... You don't know it's important, but I have 16 GB of RAM, two corresponding 1 TB disks, AMD A-10-6700 3.7 GHz, operating system 64-bit Win 8.1. Thanks for any help!
I finally understood how to set up RAID without backup-restore and difficult procedures:
1. install your new disc from the computer if you have not already - at least 2 of the same size as the original one)
2 Disable User Account Control: go to control panel - Action Center - change settings (left menu) control user accounts and set the cursor down-> restart required
3 - Download Intel Raid storage technology to:
https://downloadcenter.intel.com/confirm.aspx?httpDown=http://downloadmirror.intel.com/23496/eng/SetupRST.exe & lang = eng & Dwnldid = 23496 & ProductID = 2101 & ProductFamily = Software + Products & ProductLine = Chipset + Software & ProductProduct = Intel % C2% AE + Rapid + Storage + Technology +(Intel%C2%AE+RST)
(This will not install when this OPTION is enabled)
Reboot - you will have technology Intel Rapid Storage Technology in the taskbar and "All Applications"
4. in all Applications, locate 'Command Prompt', right-click and choose open with administrative privileges: Type "msconfig" - tab "Startup", check "Safe Boot" and click OK.»
5 - reboot - enter the BIOS with 'Escape' - change the Drive Options of AHCI RAID BIOS settings - save settings and start
6 - open "Intel Rapid Storage Technology": under status, you will be able to create a custom volume and to preserve the data on the original disk - drives synchronization process will take time.
7. when 100%, enter again in msconfig, uncheck the "Safe Boot" and you can restart your pc
8. you can put UAC in the original position.
