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?

    It is normal so he can make a full discharge of the battery as part of his learning cycle every 90 days. Make sure that this isn't that. If this isn't the case, the reason, give it 24 hours. If it is fully charged, update the system (including RAID firmware, driver first) firmware. If not fully charged yet or it reproduces quickly, then replace the battery - power down to replace.

  • Drives 3 TB for DELL PoweEdge R510 with PERC H700 Controller

    Good afternoon.

    Currently, we have 8 x discs 1Tera in our PorwerEdge R510.

    -1 RAID 1 for the first 2 discs, which have the operating system (Windows Server 2008)

    -1 RAID 5 for the other 6 disks

    We strive to upgrade our RAID 5 with new disks of 6 x 3 TB.

    The problem is OpenManage pointed out that the discs that we inserted the 2 TB, and the State is "unsupported".

    The PERC H700 firmware is:

    Firmware version

    12.0.1 - 0091

    Driver version

    Version of the Storport driver


    Do you know why this phenomenon occurs? Do we need to do a Firmware Update for the PERC controller? If so, this will delete RAID 1, OS disks?

    Thank you in advance for your help!

    See you soon.

    If you change to UEFI, you will need to reinstall the operating system. UEFI completely changes the way the operating system reads the system hardware, so there is not a way to avoid a reinstallation.

    The firmware update will not affect the RAID array.

  • 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 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.

  • 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 -

    Let me know if it helps.

  • Reference Dell PERC 6 / i stand?

    I have a Setup Raid 6 on a Dell PERC 6 / i on a Supermicro H8DGU

    running a trial of the esxi 5.5u2

    No matter what I try, I can't do the Dell raid card is displayed in the storage adapters. I don't get any device also appear for passthrough if it means something.

    I have the AMD - V active and I had once made quick initialization (it's now the initialization in the background) I saw him appear on the list as a possible drive to install esxi. That tells me the esxi sees the card and the raid. But once I'm in vsphere nothing appears. Have not found a lot of messages from people not able to pick up this card so I think that the problem is just me. Ideas of things to check?

    But I guess that even with 'Boot Support' is enabled on Perc, is yet to appear in ESXi?

    I just checked your listing of motherboards to Supermicro. It employs riser card for the PCIe slots. Just to rule out it because there are a lot of wiring on the Perc: the card is well adjusted to the port of mounting?

    You can check if ESXi usually sees the device by runiing "lspci - vvv" on the CLI/ssh. It lists the devices seen by the kernel, if Perc is not here I would consider the Perc is defective or some strange PCIe connection problem.

    I have a Perc 6 / I works well for a client on a DELL Poweredge 2950 ex personalised Dell VMWare 5.5 Update 2 but on SAS, disks. But it's all DELL hardware and software side. I assume that the custom DELL VMWare image works only on DELL systems.

    I have found several traces as the Perc 6 / I could run a little crazy if you use disks not certified by DELL. Also the Perc 6 controllers do not seem to be supported more than 2 TB of drives (see for example: disk HARD Support for 2.5 to 3 TB drives and beyond - TechCenter Extras - Wiki - TechCenter Extras - Dell Community)

    So, you can probably run the test to disconnect all readers of your first and remove the Perc firmware RAID configuration and see if ESXi detects and it lists. If it does not help either I ran the test on different materials/mobo.

  • Reference Dell perc h800

    Hello everyone we recently bought dell precision t7600 and perc h800 map for

    control of Keystone md 1200 powe... Win server 2008 r2 is installed but no driver work for dell perc h800 tried so site Web of frim dell drivers but still no hope... am wondring if anyone can help me... Thank you

    Since you're under 2008 R2, you might be able to run the Package version of update for Microsoft Windows, but since 2008 R2 is not supported on the T7600, it may not work properly, then you can try the hard drive version.  Since the H800 is not supported on the T7600 at all, it is possible that none of the Dell drivers will work.

  • PERC H700 reconfigure RAID5 to RAID6

    We currently have a Dell PowerEdge R610 (PERC H700 embedded controller) with SAS 6 x 300 GB disks in a RAID5 configuration. We want to replace it with 6 x 1 TB drives in a RAID6 configuration. We must do so with as little downtime as possible (preferably no). Is it possible to Exchange each small disc out with the largest disk and perform a direct reconfiguration of 5 + 1 RAID5 to RAID6 4 + 2 configuration?

    States of the documentation you need to add a new disk to reconfigure from RAID5 to RAID6 RAID6 for a smaller virtual drive, but given that the new drives are much larger, it should theoretically be possible to reconfigure without adding a new drive all in maintaining / increasing capacity. If the controller supports that is my question.

    1. you cannot mix SAS and SATA drives in the same array, to replace a 300 GB SAS drive with a 1 to SATA will NOT work.

    2. IF you were to replace the 300 GB SAS drives with 1 TB SAS drives, you might reconfigure your table to include all of the space on the disks, however...

    3 If you reconfigure your 1.5 to 5 to VD VD, you MUST have already installed the operating system in UEFI boot mode. If you currently have your system in the BIOS boot mode, you should be limited to a 2 TB VD or need to reinstall the OS using the UEFI.

    4 reconfiguration of a 6-disk RAID 5, RAID 6 requires the addition of a 7 disk, regardless of the involved disk space.

  • 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.

  • Add the disk to the PERC H700 of RAID integrated table 5

    Hi all.

    I have currently a Dell PowerEdge R710 configured with 4 SAS - 2 10 146 k Seagate 2.5 "drives in a Perc h700 integrated Bay RAID-5. I ordered a SAS-2 10 146 k disk Seagate 2.5 "to add to the Bay RAID-5 storage, making it a 5-disc set. What is the best way to add the drive to the RAID-5 array without losing any data? I have OpenManage Server Admin on the server.

    OS: Windows Server 2003 R2 32 BIT

    You can use OMSA... go in storage, PERC, virtual disks and select Reconfigure in the drop-down list of tasks available for your RAID 5.  This will add the disk to your RAID 5, then you will need to adjust the partitions in Windows once it is completed.

  • 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!

    Start on our live image and export logs of the OMSA facility there.

    Asked if drieves NL - Seagate SAS (ST4000NM0023) can be used in the following configuration.

    Reference Dell Perc H710 + PowerEdge R720XD MD1200.

    The answer that I gave them was who should be tested. Because in documentation it is stated that mark Dell hard disks should be used.

    I know that some controllers Perc will give a warning each time if not dell disks are used, but they work without problems. Is this the case even when you use a box MD1200?

    Kind regards



    You're right that only some drives are tested and supported in the bays of the MD. Here is a link that will take you to one of the manuals that list all drives supported for 1200 MD and MD1220.

  • PERC H700 drive failure

    Have a PowerEdge R510 with a PERC H700 / RAID 5. Newspapers showed the road 3 has failed, but turned upward. We have replaced (hot swap) with a new one (from Dell). Server administrator still shows as having failed, but turned upward, the logs show nothing except flashing in car 3 / unblinking the defective drive until it was removed (logs do not show the removal / departure of replacement or regeneration). Is there something we're missing in the H700? Thank you.


    Install the latest version of the OMSA and check the State of VD. See the link for download with instructions for installation at the bottom of the page.
