Fedora Servers :: Put Old DualCore PCIe Board Into A Proliant 3000?

Apr 23, 2009

I'm wondering if I could put my old DualCore PCIe Board into a Proliant 3000? Why not; I mean, the Array Controller should plug right into the PCI slot on the DualCore board. Of course, I'll have to shoehorn a second power supply into the case for the newer Board, but wouldn't it be a monster! Two 3GHZ Processors, with a 256 MB nVidia graphics card, 1.5 GB of RAM, and 8 Hard Drives! (7, actually, because one of them doesn't work). I'm up late, and I think I'll start working on it right now.

Ubuntu Servers :: Installing 10.04 On Proliant 3000?

Jun 26, 2010

I got my hands on my first real server hardware yesterday - a PIII 600 MHz COMPAQ Proliant 3000 with 1.8 GB RAM, Smart Array 3200 controller and 4x18.2GB SCSI ULTRA 3 hard drives. RAM is upgraded from original and USB card added - otherwise hardware arrangement appears to be original.

Minimal 10.04 installed (35 minutes boot to boot) as Server 10.04 could not detect CD drive. My problem? Everything works but it does not look right. Probably my bigger problem?? I know almost nothing about RAID and the more I read the more ethereal my understanding seems to become.

When installing, I chose to install with LVM on c0d0. Grub written to MBR. I have posted df -l, fdisk -l and lshw output below. Would someone tell me if this looks correct and, possibly, offer some pointers if it does not.

Fedora Installation :: Loses CD-ROM Drive On Proliant 3000?

Apr 3, 2009

By way of background: I've been using Linux since kernel 0.97.something_or_the_other, but I've been using one of the other distros. This is my first crack at Redhat/Fedora.

I'm trying to install Fedora 10 on an old Compaq Proliant 3000, dual P-II 450, Compaq Smartarray 3200, plenty of drive space, 3C905 based NIC, original Compaq CD drive.

The install will boot from the CD just fine, I get the initial graphic menu to select whether to do an install, upgrade, etc.

I select option 1 to install and I get what looks like an ncurses based screen that asks me to select a language, another screen that asks for a keyboard, then a screen that asks me if I want to install from CD/DVD, NFS, local drive, etc.

If I select the CD install option, the next screen complains that it can't find a drive and asks me to either select a driver from a list of drivers or to insert a driver disk. Doesn't matter what driver I select, it always snaps immediately back to the screen that says it can't find the hardware to match the driver. Every time it does this, it's not spinning the CD to read the driver that I've selected.

IF I go for an NFS install, after it asks me the network parms I wind up at that same driver screen with the same results, no matter what I pick it throws me back to the can't find hardware/pick a driver screen. As far as I can tell, the NIC is never actually trying to wake up.

I know the hardware is functional because if I boot from from CD with my usual distro it identifies and starts all the hardware just fine, CD, NIC, RAID, etc.

I can see where it might work to have the necessary driver module for the CD on a floppy, but where do I get the module? I tried mounting the .iso images for the install set on another machine but I don't see anything obvious that looks like modules that I can cabbage onto.

Installation :: Squeeze Or Lenny Not Load Root On Proliant 3000

May 4, 2010

On a ancient server Proliant 3000 (works perfect) with Smart Array 3200 and raid 5, and a CD-ROM IDE drive, I have installed Debian Squeeze or Lenny more five times without success. Before run install the OS on this server is neccesary to execute Smart Start CD, which create (block 1 of the hard disk) the Compaq Diagnostic partition (aprox 39 MB).After that proceeding, I ran the installation CD (Debian Squeeze, or Lenny, both with same results) wich ended well. The bootloader was sets on MBR or primary sector.On restart, the OS remains long time trying to load root, and later it warns something as this:"Gave up waiting for root device:" etc etc and "ALERT! /dev/disk/by-uuid/c53f0423 does not exist. Droping to a shell!"

I summarized the screen text because lines that I pasted above are clear about matter.I tried to change GRUB 2 from bootloader screen ("e" keypress) the /dev/hda or hd0 or like this, but not resolved the problem...I went to other console (Alt-F2) and I typed "fdisk -l" and "df -h" and I saw that CD drive appears like "/dev/hda"... It not's something strange?

Debian Multimedia :: Can Put PCIE X16 Card In PCIE X1 Slot?

Jun 28, 2010

I have fairly new requirement for a second monitor. My main display is running fine using nvidia proprietary drivers.I do have a pcie (probably x16) video card sitting around, but my motherboard only has 1 x16 slot (used by my main display), 2 x1 slots and a few pci slots. From memory, the second video card is an ATI card.Questions:

1. Can I put a PCIE x16 card in a PCIE x1 slot?

2. Would using 1 Nvidia card and 1 ATI cause trouble?

Ubuntu Servers :: PCIe RAID Controller With 4 Intel SSDs?

Jan 12, 2011

I have been thinking about upgrading my RAID setup from a pair of Intel X25s running the software based RAID included with ubuntu to four Intel X25s running off a PCIe based controller. The controller is an HP P400 which I know works great on ubuntu (I have other machines running it with SAS drives). My desktop has an Intel S5000XVNSATAR mainboard and I have an open PCIe v1.0 8x (physical) slot that is wired 4x. The controller is 8x and will fit fine. How much of a performance hit do you think I will see running this 8x controller in the slot wired 4x with four Intel x25s in a RAID 10? Will I have enough bandwidth with the 4x for those SSD's?

Ubuntu Servers :: Streaming From HP Proliant Dl360G4P

Mar 5, 2010

I currently have my ftp server running off of my hp dl360. Ubuntu 9.10 server. I cannot seem to stream anything. I can use WINS and mount the share and then watch videos over my LAN like that but I want to stream my media over the internet, I already have a domain and NAT 100% set up with port forwarding. The snag I am hitting is I cannot seem to get streaming to work over the net.

the stats on the DL360g4p (1u rackmount) are as follows
1x Xeon 3.08GHz - 512MB cache
2x 300GB SCSI @ 10k RPM in raid0.
gigabit NIC
ubuntu 9.10 server

All web(http/ssh) traffic is forwarded to seperate ubuntu server VM running ontop of ESXi on a different 2u HP proliant dl380g3. All ftp/smb traffic is forwarded to the 1u dl360. I have tried vlc -I http (port 8080 redirected to ftpserver) under a detatched screen window and it failed to initialize video driver. I have an entire Directory that I would like to make available to stream.

Ubuntu Servers :: 10.04 Raid On HP Proliant ML115?

May 17, 2010

I have a problem installing Ubuntu on an HP Proliant ML115. This server has a 1TB mirrored RAID setup (and 1 250GB drive), problem is, Ubuntu apparently doesnt like it, it detects the RAID but fails to partition the hard drives and the installation cant continue. I tried the guided partitioning using the whole disk (detected RAID array). Here is what syslog gives me:

May 17 22:32:30 main-menu[504]: INFO: Menu item 'disk-detect' selected
May 17 22:32:30 net/hw-detect.hotplug: Detected hotpluggable network interface eth0

May 17 22:32:31 hw-detect: Loading PCMCIA bridge driver module: i82365
May 17 22:32:31 hw-detect: FATAL: Module i82365 not found.


PS: Im very noob regarding this kind of stuff so detailed instructions please, also feel free to give configuration tips

Ubuntu Servers :: Installing 10.04 On A HP Proliant DL180 G6?

Nov 2, 2010

installing Ubuntu 10.04 on a HP Proliant DL180 G6, especially via the LO100 virtual KVM? I can boot almost any linux distro with it, but unfortunately whenever I boot the Ubuntu server cd the screen gets garbled. I did some searching on the net, and found some references to older versions of Ubuntu where one had to add vga=771 to the boot options, but this still doesn't work with 10.04. I tried several vga modes, all to no avail (with vga=normal the screen gets garbled, with anything else the screen just stays black). Anyone got any idea on how to fix this?

Ubuntu Servers :: Blank Screen - HP Proliant Microserver And 11.04

Aug 3, 2011

I've installed Ubuntu Server 11.04 64-bit on an HP Proliant Microserver. The install seems fine but I'm having a start-up problem. When I boot the server, I get a blank screen after the Grub Menu. If I press ALT-F2 I get the login prompt. I've tried editing the grub file (after having done some googling) and tried adding nomodeset to the following line in the grub file:
GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash nomodeset acpi_osi=Linux"

I added nomodeset as well as acpi_osi=Linux to see if that would do somethng. After adding nomodeset, when I boot the server, I still get a blank screen after the Grub menu but this time a blinking cursor. Again, if I press ALT-F2 the login prompt shows up. So it boots (I'm able to putty/Webmin in even when the screen is blank) but don't know why I need to press ALT-F2 all the time to get the login prompt to appear. Plus I don't see the boot process right before the login as well.

HP Proliant has the following chipset and processor:
- AMD RS785E - north bridge, core logic controller
- AMD SB820M - south bridge
- AMD Athlon II NEO Processor 1.3 GHz Dual Core
I've also tried adding xforcevesa instead of nomodeset and that option too leaves me with a blank screen.

Ubuntu Servers :: 10.04 Server And Compaq Proliant ML330 G2 W/ATA RAID?

Jun 7, 2010

I'm having a great deal of time getting Lucid Server up and running on my Compaq Proliant ML330 G2. I've put a thread up in installing and upgrading, but people there don't seem to have any ideas about my problem. Since I figured there would be a higher concentration of server users here,

I've got a Proliant ML330 G2, 2 1.4 GHz PIV's
A dvd and CD drive on IDE1 (I'll explain why in a moment
A 65 gb hdd on IDE2
and four 40gb hdd's on hardware ide raid.

I've tried everything, but I can't get the sucker to boot. Installing to the raid array doesn't work. Some array setups won't partition, and others aren't even recognized as arrays. I've tried disabling the raid array and installing to the IDE hdd (my original intention) but I just get bad system disk errors. It would be exceptionally helpful if anyone has one of these boxes, or has worked on one, but I'm willing to take advice from any direction at this point.

Ubuntu Servers :: Compaq Proliant DL380 G2 Refusing To Install 10.10

Mar 29, 2011

I have a Compaq server, as per the title, and I wish to install Ubuntu Server onto it but ran aground when I found it got to trying to run the installer after the CD Boot menu, it just stopped there, waited 180 seconds (as per the error's details) and then locked up with the Caps Lock & Scroll Lock lights on the keyboard flashing.

Now I know it's not the server, as I have installed other OSes onto it in the past, including an older version of Ubuntu server (9.04), I did try and re-install the 9.04 version but the CD I had was too scratched up and got to a point in the installer (copying files) where it just failed cos it couldn't read the disc.

The specs of the thing are:

Dual PentiumIIIs 1.4GHz
512mb RAM (keep meaning to upgrade it)
3x 18.2GB 10k SCSI HDDs (Storage)


Not sure what else is in there, but the full specs are on the web...

Ubuntu Servers :: Installing HP Support Apps On Proliant ML370 G3?

Jun 1, 2011

I acquired an old ML370 Proliant server, and I'm attempting to find a way to control the fan speed, as all three noisy fans are running at full blast, and I had planned to keep this thing in the office, because it has no wireless capability or support.

I know the following:HP has a suite of programs that are variously called Insight Control Manager, Server Health driver, HP-health, hpasm, and a few more I can't remember. Obviously these are different iterations of the same program, but I have been unable to determine which one I need, and I've been completely unable to find a way to install any of them or find the repository that contains them.

The website: Download Drivers and SoftwareIt lists a lot of different Enterprise-class Server OSes, but nothing about Ubuntu or any home server OSes. I've only been at this for a week, so I don't know which of these would work with Ubuntu Server, or how to make them work if their aptitude file extension is not .deb. I'm currently running Server version 10.10, as 11.04 gave me monitor troubles.

Ubuntu Servers :: Fan Control - Power-Noise Optimization On The Proliant DL120 G6 ?

Jul 12, 2011

I'm trying to get the HP Proliant DL120 G6 server a lot quieter after startup under Ubuntu Server 11.04 (x64).

For now, it seems like there is no fan control at all: when I start the server, the fans start running at max speed, then it slightly lowers to 3.5K-5K RPM. Once there, it never goes down or up. There's just no fan or power control at all.

In no specific order, I will describe as much as I can my situation.

The system is IPMI 2.0 compliant, so when using the ipmitool package I can get the values of the sensors like this:


I tried to follow the procedures for using the fancontrol package together with lm-sensors, as shown at [url]. One of the very first steps is to launch "sensors-detect", which gives:

Ubuntu Servers :: 9.10 2nd Ethernet PCIe Adapter Found Then Not Found?

Jan 24, 2010

During install of 9.10 server, both ethernet adapters were found. One is built-in to the motherboard, the second is on a PCIe slot. Selected the on-board adapter for eth0 during install, set fixed IP on the web, connected, updated, etc. w/ no problems. The second adapter is for the LAN.BUT, on first and subsequent reboots after installation complete the second adapter is not detected at all, as if it were not even plugged into the PCI or the driver not loaded. This happens on either of two slots, with two different adapters, Intel or Netgear, both pretty recent, and both of which are detected and work in a different box. 'Ethtool eth1' says device not found.This is a fairly recent motherboard 3N78EM).Since the adapter was found during installation I'm assuming that the problem is not with not the board. I've built several server systems with two or three ethernet adapters and have never run into this situation.

Ubuntu Servers :: Install Server On An Alix2d2 Board?

Jan 14, 2010

I tried to install Ubuntu Server on an Alix2d2 board: [URL]It has a CF card connected with an IDE interface and no vga output. The processor is a AMD Geode. I'm aware that I need a 386 kernel as described in the german wiki:


What I did so far:

Installed imedia linux PCengines Alix build [URL] on an other Ubuntu machine with usb cf interface. This worked but I don't know how I can install Ubuntu from imedia linux.

Installed Ubuntu Server on the same Ubuntu machine. Installed the 386 kernel and changed the grub config file to enable the serial output to a terminal and updated grub[URL]. I created the file /etc/init/ttyS0.conf that the serial interface still works after the bootloader [URL].Unfortunately the alix board writes only "GRUB loading." and some empty lines.

Tried to boot with Tftpd32.exe by Ph. Jounin following this guide: [URL] So I set up a TFPT server following this german wiki: [URL]As advised changed /etc/inetd.conf and /etc/default/tftpd-hpa, prepared the boot image and the DHCP server. This should be enough on the server. I have to write N over the serial port to the board while it performs memory test to enable PXE boot. This was partly successful: it gets an IP adress but afterwards nothing happens. I can't find any error message in the syslog.

I attached my configuration files. As boot image I used [URL] and used the following commands to bring it into the right place:


sudo tar -xvzf netboot.tar.gz -C /var/lib/tftpboot/
sudo chown -R nobody:nogroup /var/lib/tftpboot

installing Ubuntu Server with PXE or from the other machine to the CF card or even directly from imedia linux.

Debian Configuration :: Reboot Cycle Running 64bit Squeeze On Intel T3200 Dualcore

Mar 13, 2011

running Debian Squeeze (standard 32bit squeeze Kernels linux-image-2.6.32-5-486 and linux-image-2.6.32-5-686) happily without trouble on a 64bit capable Samsung laptop featuring an Intel T3200 Dualcore processor. However, when I try to boot using the squeeze 64bit kernel (linux-image-2.6.32-5-amd64) the system proceeds through a few text lines immediately after Grub, and then performs a warm start.

The text output I get immediately after Grub look similar to the ones I get booting the 486 and 686 kernels, without any indication for the reboot behavior. The rebooting also seems to happen before any entry is written into the boot/system log files (logging is enabled). This behavior also occured when I first tried to prime the machine from the Debian squeeze install CD using the amd64 kernel. I'm generally happy with the 32bit kernels, but I'd like to use the amd64 support to do some Java compatibility testing for 64bit architectures.

The Laptop is a Samsung R510-Aura T3200 Delfina with the following Hardware and Setup (using Grub as boot loader):

- Intel Pentium Dual CPU T3200 @ 2.00GHz (see http://ark.intel.com/Product.aspx?id=37160 for details)
- NVIDIA GeForce 9200M GS
- 3GB RAM + 1GB reserved for GeForce
- Konfiguration Details:
-- Phoenix Bios


Maybe a strange BIOS-Setting that works with the 32bit kernels but not with the 64bit kernel? I've seen a post on here that indicates someone is running the amd64 kernel on a T3200 successfully, and the chip is definitely 64bit capable, so the reboot behavior is a complete mystery for me

Fedora Hardware :: Fail To Access PCIe User Space (Bar 2)

Feb 8, 2011

I am unable to access a standard memory pcie card bar registers through my driver on the pcie interface for Zotec H55 ITX motherboard (it includes a built in NVideo engine). This is the following setup:
1. Fedora 14 32 bit pcie scan does see the board (lspci -n show card on pcie bus #2)
2. Configuration register read is good. (pci_read_config_byte())
3. The following driver commands did correctly return bar information: pci_rsource_start(), pci_resource_end(),pci_resource_len()
4. The commands iowrite32() or memcopy_toio() results in no pcie transfers (determined through pcie core probing)
5. The same driver code fully functioned on the Intel DH57JG mini-ITX. (using lspci -n, pcie located on pcie bus #1)
6. Note, it seems that the pcie connector for Zotec is on bus#2, where as Intel MB pcie connector is on bus#1. Note also that the Zotec has a built in NVidia graphics engine.

The following driver code was used. Again, it worked on DH57JG:
pcid.pciaddr_phy_str_bar0 = pci_resource_start(pcid.pcidev,0);
if(pcid.pciaddr_phy_str_bar0 == 0) {
printk(KERN_INFO "fail to get pci start address for Bar0.
return -ENODEV; }
pcid.pciaddr_phy_len_bar0 = pci_resource_len(pcid.pcidev,0);
if(pcid.pciaddr_phy_len_bar0 == 0) {
printk(KERN_INFO "fail to get pci end address for Bar0.
"); .....

// testing
iowrite32(0x13572348,(void *)(pcid.pciaddr_base_bar2+(long unsigned int)(4*j)));
iowrite32(0x12344321,(void *)(pcid.pciaddr_base_bar0));}
i = ioread32((void *)(pcid.pciaddr_base_bar2));
printk(KERN_INFO "pci bar2 reg0=%x

Fedora :: Proliant G4 Becomes Non-responsive @ 100% Wait?

Jul 1, 2011

I've installed both Fedora 15 x64 and Fedora 14 x64 on an HP Proliant DL380 G4 with the HP SmartArray SCSI controller, 2x146GB UW320 SCSI drives.The server was running RH v4 with a hardware RAID 1 with uptime of 400+ days with no issues.I broke the HW RAID and made 2x volumes and software RAID. I have another identical server with 4x 146GB UW320 SCSI drives with Fedora 12 x64 and SW RAID, so I figured 14/15 should be the same process.What happens is the server runs great for a while, but when I leave it for a few hours, it becomes non-responsive. I've re-installed 15 and 14 multiple times now and also installed NRPE, which shows load increasing to the point to where the server is non-responsive. It hits high load levels (as reported by NRPE). The load levels appear to be increasing over time. Such as last night:

log off at midnight, load average 0/0/0
2:03 am - WARNING - load average: 9.91, 8.85, 6.75
3:03 am - WARNING - load average: 16.91, 15.86, 14.47
