News from “The Lab” – The new server

I decded to switch over to a new server, as the old HP Proliant was unable to handle 64bit virtual machines (due to lack of BEST in its processors).

I found a cheap Dell PowerEdge 2950 with two quad-core processors, 8GB RAM and two 146GB SAS disks.

But…

When I turned on the server after its installation, this message came up:

It seems that the PERC controller is not working… I just tried reseating it and the riser card, but no luck.

I will try to remove the controller to see if the message still persists, just to isolate the problem source.

If anyone has some ideas on how to troubleshoot this problem, please let me know.
