7825-H3 RAID Configuration

Unanswered Question

I have two 7825-H3's out of the box that don't have RAID configured or anything. These will be part of a new 6.1 cluster that we will be upgrading from 4.2, so the 6.1 disks came separately.

Whenever I try to load from the disk I get the following

Disk size [149 GB] failed check [MIN needed 232 GB]

I even tried configuring the RAID array manually prior to bootup but I get the same exact error.

These are two 160GB drives.

Has anyone seen this one?

Thanks in advance

Did u get the server from us or from HP?

BAsed on your description looks like disk size is fine...


Are you using 6.1 disk?

Per the error looks like Media doesnt recognize this new valid server (h3)

What is the exact version are you installing 6.w(x)yyyy-z ??

Interesting tidbit of info if anyone ever encounters this. The server had extra RAM installed to put it up to 6GB instead of the normal 2.

Once I pulled the extra RAM out, it worked fine.

I guess the DVD has some RAM flag in it or something and maybe it thought it was a 7845, not sure of the cause, but I do know the fix.
