SANWorks Storage Management Appliance IIOpen in a New Window

Does anyone know where to get the ISOs and/or drivers to set this thing up from scratch?  I have one that has a faulty OS, and I need to rebuild it. 


If not, does nyone have any thoughts or know a bit about the server itself?  Like if I could get a quick-start CD from another server (DL380/DL385?) to get it up and running and installed correctly.


I can get to the OS, but it will reboot at least once a day and hang during the progress bar for 2003, so if there's information I need to extract to narrow anything down I can do so.


HP Data VaultOpen in a New Window

I had problems with the automatic backup service. This resulted in a "Failed" backup.

A repair of the database give an answer OK. But when starting a "Clean up" there is a system fault.

Error message:

Windows Home Server Console cannot execute the task.

An error in the backup service is preventing the cleanup service.


How to cleanup the hard way?

Hostname does not fail overOpen in a New Window

We are in the process of setting up our lab to test StorageWorks Storage Mirroring. The mirroring is working, and fail over is partially working. The hostname of the source server is not being added to the target server when fail over occurs.

Any ideas what setting we are missing?

CV SDM 1.09.02 UpgradationOpen in a New Window

I am new to HP Storage works. But I have to upgrade HP Storage Works Command View SDM 1.06 to 1.09.02 in HP-UX 11.11

Please help me do that. I have the installation guide, but is it as simple as it is mentioned in the guide to un-install the previous version and install the new version.

First of all I am not able to understand what type of installation is done before, as it was done by people from HP.
I am a SAP consultant, but expected to install this software.
Any inputs would be of great help.
Let me know if you require any information, I will give the same.

Thanks & Regards,
P. Kumaravel.


Windows 2003 does not recognize ARRAY in MA8000Open in a New Window

I had to reinstall a server that had Windows 2000 and connected to a MA8000.

Tasks done:
- Install Windows 2003
- Windows automatically detect the disks in MA8000 (that was great).
- Installed ACS88WinKit
- Installed Secure Path.

Now I had to install 5 new disks:
- Disks Installed
- New Array created (raid 5)
- Hosts associated

But this Array is not detected in Windows 2003. The old arrays are working fine.

The firmware version is 8.6F. Should I upgrade? I saw that there are many versions and I must upgrade step by step... Where should I start? Which firmware should I use?

Thanks for your help.

Tape Backup on NetworkOpen in a New Window

My Colorado Tape Backup drive is a model T3000

I have a small office 5 user peer-to-peer network. 4 of my five work stations are running Windows XP – one workstation (seldom used) is running Windows 98 and the server is running Windows 98.

My server is the oldest machine on the network with a 400 mHz processor. The server has a Colorado Tape Backup drive in it that I use to back up the server files nightly.

I want to replace the server with a newer CPU with a faster processor. I can’t move the Tape backup system to a new CPU because of its age.

Can I hook up the old server to a new CPU to do the tape backup only? If so, where could I find information on doing this


XP Ghosting to new disk concernsOpen in a New Window

Hello, this seemed to be the best spot to post this message. My concern has been ghosting the image of my old HD to the new one. I run WinXP Pro and know that ghosting an image of a Win2000/XP drive is not as easy as it was in Win95,98, etc. If your running XP, have you been also concerned with ghosting/migration software as I am looking for software that does this job reliably. I don't care about interfaces being pretty or easy, what I want is something I can rely on. I want to be able to ghost and image of any XP/2000 computer with applications fully set up and either burn the image to another Hard drive or CDR's. When I need the image, I can open it onto the drive of my choice and have it work. I have read bad reviews for DriveImage 7, Acronis TrueImage, V2i Protector, bothe versions. What's left? Must I go the "sysprep" route to copy this HD to a new drive. WIndows should have an application that can simply send a compressed image of your drive to any location and if disaster strikes, you can use the XP disk, boot, recover the image from the backup location and install to location of your choice, (server versions would also be able to access network drives). Anyone who has duplicated XP drives with software and has had reliable results please post your review or suggestion here. Thanks

SSL2020 and Backup Exec 8.6 on Win2000 - Hardware errors?Open in a New Window

About once a week I get an error like this during the verify stage of a scheduled backup:

Event Type: Error
Event Source: Backup Exec
Event Category: None
Event ID: 57665
Date: 5/16/2003
Time: 11:50:49 PM
User: N/A
Computer: (backup/media server)
Storage device "Drive1" reported an error on a request to seek to a logical media address.

Error reported:
No more data is on the tape.

It happens on multiple jobs, but always on the same tape library (there are two on the backup/media server).

It's happened on both tape drives in the library, so I'm thinking it's not a tape drive problem.

According to eventid.net, this error is related to MS KB Article 154690 - http://support.microsoft.com/?kbid=154690

Any suggestions? Is it a SCSI problem? A bad-media problem? Something else?
