PowerEdge R310 and Perc H700

I have an older R310 which does NOT support the hot-swappable drives and I'm looking to add a raid card Perc H700.  A few quick searches show only cables for installation bottom of basket.

So I'm not the guy of material more experienced so there cables that go from the H700 to readers SAS?



It should be X394K part number. The description is HARD drive cable. PERC H200/H700 HDD card

  • PowerEdge R710 and perc h700, disc not visible in OS


    We have PowerEdge R710 with perc h700 raid 5 controller physical drives under raid6 running. We have recently added a sixth of the road which is much smaller (512 against 4 TBS) we want to just format and use it as a normal drive in the OS (Ubuntu 12.04.5).

    However, the drive is not visible in the operating system. When you enter the settings of the RAID controller that it says that the drive is READY but not configured and all the options to the title of operations are grayed out. How can we make this hard drive is visible in the operating system?

    See you soon

    The H700 does NOT support non RAID, so all records first must be configured on the controller, before its presentation to the BONE. You must configure (initialize) as a single drive RAID 0.

  • DELL PowerEdge R710 and PERC H700 RAID driver for WIn 2008 Std

    Hi all

    I have a DELL PowerEdge R710 with a controller RAID PERC H700.

    I try to install Windows 2008 Std 64 bit, but I can't find the driver. Even for the site web at support.dell.com. Can someone help me.

    THX in advance

    Even if you use a driver of 2008, it should at least recognize it, then you must be using the wrong driver or something wrong :)

    If you are installing 2008 R2, make sure that you use this file:

    If you install 2008 x 64, make sure that you use this file:

    With one, you must first unlock the .exe (right click on the .exe, properties, unlock), unzip / extract the files (run it and make a note of the default location), and then copy the 4 files on a CD, USB, etc., then when Windows tells you that he is not all hard disks, click on the link drivers load below to load the drivers from the media you have chosen.

  • PowerEdge R720 and PERC H710

    For the life of me, I can't the controller to detect the physical disks. These are Dell brand discs. Any specific ideas of the BIOS settings, maybe I need to change?

    The box has been initially implemented RAID 10 on the S110 raid, but I removed that and tried with the software raid times off and on and still no luck.

    Don't see anything that would indicate a firmware issue, but:

    H710 PERC v21.0.2 - 0001

    BIOS v1.2.6

    Thank you!

    If you have not changed the cable then this is the problem. The willing S110 to a different connector than the PERC.

    In the diagram #24 is the S110 connector you are currently using. #22 is the PERC connector, you need to use now. Here are the part numbers for the cable:

    If you have the 2.5 "HDD backplane - MJCP4

    If you have the 3.5 "HDD backplane - MX3P7


    Hello (or rather the night).

    I have a dell poweredge R310 (with PERC H700) server and 3 hard drives.

    The first two are the storage on SATA drive with a capacity of 3 TB (each 6 to total) this operation of RAID 1.

    The third is a 64 GB SSD for boot into the operating system (I chose to set up Debian).

    I read a few topics who insist to start using UEFI and put the storage disks to GPT for the OS can fully recognize.

    If I could access the UEFI interface, with the configuration of raid PERC H700, but I can't find any indication of the GPT.

    How can I go about it, is that I missed a step?

    Hoping that someone will help me :)

    No, TPG is a function of the operating system, NOT the hardware, so if the PERC does not recognize the full capacity of disc, then either your H700 firmware is old (> 2 to support has been added in the second update of firmware for this card) or the drive is not compatible.  What make and model are you using?

  • PERC H700 RAID 5, 3 disks, 1 Reporting failed and 1 predictive failure


    I have a PowerEdge T410 with a PERC H700, RAID 5 with 3 disks.  The controller reported a failed drive so I replaced the week last with a drive of new/refurbished.  Now only 1 week later it reported another drive has failed and the drive replaced as predictive failure.  Looks suspicious, i.e. I am doubting the controller card.

    I think updating the firmware of the controller first, but not sure if I should replace the faulty drive first, i.e. If updating the firmware could cause table failure.

    Also, if I install OpenManage on a virtual machine (host is ESXi 4.1), OM sees the controller?

    Thank you!

  • PowerEdge R310 Perc S300 Raid 10

    I'm trying to set up a PowerEdge R310 with a Perc S300 and 4 x 2 TB drives and raid 10 server r2 2012.

    I set up the raid 10 by pressing the R command during startup.  It implements the fine.  I then put in my dvd openmanage systems management and run the installer.  This is where the problem begins.  with all the 4 - 2 TB drives and raid 10, I should have 4 TB of hard drive space, and it is only showing 2 TB.

    I canceled the installation, rebooted and changed the UEFI BIOS.  the problem here is with the UEFI boot, server does not start on a dvd, instead, it starts directly to flash disk (this is where the BONE is).  It works fine too, but at the beginning of the installation, he said: "we have found all the readers" and it wants me to install the drivers.  I sail to openmanage dvd and can not find the drivers.

    once more I cancel the installation.  I switch back to normal UEFI bios, openmanage dvd start and try and reconfigure raid of openmanage.  everything sets up very well, but in the end of the process when it prepares the files, it gives me an error saying ' deployment failed due to: Boot controller culd details can not be retrieved ", and my only option is to restart.

    I reboot and start all over again.

    My only option so far is to install NO UEFI and don't have 2 TB of hard drive space, but I really want to use all 4 to.

    Help, please!

    The OpenManage DVD has no drivers in the format you need for use during a manual of OS installation - you need to get them from the support.dell.com site (or ftp.dell.com - you need the hard / ZPE file version).

    Have you checked the UEFI boot options? You should be able to boot from a DVD using the UEFI. And what do you mean that you can start only "directly to the flash drive? If you can start on a flashdrive in UEFI mode, then why not install Windows from a flash drive? And what do you mean "this is where the BONE is?

  • PowerEdge T710 PERC H700 RAID level migration issue

    In my new role, I inherited a number of servers managed until now by someone else.  One of them is a PowerEdge T710 with a Controller PERC H700.  There are two matrices; the other has four 3TO disks in a RAID-5 configuration.

    I don't need the storage space any where near as much as the reliability factor.  Is it possible to do a migration on-site from RAID 5 to RAID-6 without disturbing data?  There is enough free space, and I have no problem losing a portion of the free space I have.

    "Is it possible to do a migration on-site from RAID 5 to RAID-6 without disturbing data?"

    Yes, BUT you can use this method by ADDING another disk.  RAID 6 requires a minimum of 4 drives.  Insert a disk "to hot', then in the software OpenManage (OMSA), go into storage, PERC, virtual disks and reconfigure in the drop-down list of tasks available for RAID 5.

    "There is enough free space, and I have no problem losing a portion of the free space I have."

    Apart from the fact that RAID 6 requires a minimum of 4 drives, even if you want to spend a 4 drive RAID 5 has a 4-drive RAID 6, it could NOT be done.  You can't make a smaller table.  The controller doesn't know - or care - on real data of BONE on the disks (so the amount of 'free space' is not serious) and is not worried about virtual disk space (which would be filled if the total capacity of the discs has been used).

  • PowerEdge T710 Tower Perc H800 / H700 not Compatible

    You can't update a PERC 6 / i with PERC H700 firmware. It is not an update of the firmware you need - you need a new/different controller card.

  • Update of firmware and driver PERC H700

    I hope an easy answer, but I have a firmware and driver update for my PERC H700 and ask yourself which must be installed first? Is it still important?

    Hello Blake

    You probably won't have issues updated in any order, but recommended when performing updates is to start furthest from the system BIOS and work your way back. This means that you would update the driver first.

    Behind put reason in this way is that if you update something like the BIOS OF THE system firstly something that takes over after the system BIOS is incompatible older revision you backflash THE system BIOS in order to enter the other device/OS to be able to update it. If you update in the correct order you should still be able to perform updates obsolete unit to bring it to a compatible revision.

    Thank you

  • PERC H700 driver during Windows Server 2012 r2 - disk Raid not recognized not


    I try to install a r2 Windows Server 2012 to a Poweredge R710 with a Raid Perc H700. 2 HDD in Raid 1, but the HARD drive is not rcognized Italian Installation even if I try to use the 2008 r2 for the Perc Raid driver. They are listed, but if I select one disk HARD are not visible. What should do?

    Best regards...


    Leave in the Raid Controller, what is the status of the table? In addition, was the raid 1 initialized after being created? If this isn't the case, then, who will have to be done before you try to install.

    If you download this and start on the lifecycle controller (F10) and then select deploy BONES, load these files there and proceed with the installation of the OS.


    I would like to know how will install it.

  • Dell Power Edge R410 & Dell Perc H700 modular F2WGY

    Hi guys

    Need some advice please, a few weeks ago, we bought a Dell R410. This came with a modular 6/ir Perc. However, when we arrived at the installation of drives we noticed that the controller did not recognize disks larger than 2 TB. It's not good because we need to use 2 x 3 and 2 x 500 GB disks in a RAID 1 Configuration.

    After Googling autour, I came to the conclusion that the card that it came with the "Perc 6/ir' does not support disks larger than 2 TB.

    So, I advanced and bought a new modular a "Dell Perc H700 F2WGY" controller which apparently supports disks more great.

    the controller came yesterday so I removed the old Perc 6/ir controller from the slot in the bottom of the map editing and trendy "Dell Perc H700 F2WGY" modular at the same place. : Photo of slot, I inserted H700

    H700 card: see picture

    PERC 6/ir map: see picture

    Anyway, once I inserted the card and started, I was presented with the error; "PCIE training error" system HALT.

    Obviously this would not start any further. So I brought the wrong card? im confused at the moment between modular and integrated? the pcie slot is low for integrated only cards?

    I then add the new map on the PCIE Top slot. the system then started and he could see the card. However, it found no readers?

    What exactly I do bad will this card work at all? or I'm out of luck and need another card?


    The problem you are experiencing is due to the model of the H700. Map H700 modular version is actually designed for the blade server Poweredge series. The model that you would need is the H700i which is the version that is integrated, designed to go into the white storage controller slot you are talking about. The references are KK67X and CNXVV. The latest model of the H700 is the H700A which is the adapter, it's the model that is necessary for installation in a PCIe location.

    This link explains in detail in the overview H700 - http://www.dell.com/downloads/global/products/pvaul/en/perc-technical-guidebook.pdf

    Let me know if it helps.
