Mounting Brackets/rails For A DAT Drive In A DELL Server

Sep 13, 2007

I look after a Dell PE2800 server, it has a pair of 5.25 bays on the front, the top most of the two contains a Dell PowerVault 100T DAT72 tape backup drive. I have a second identical drive that i now wish to install into the bay beneath in a similar manner.

Problem is this - my colleague tell me that Dell are no longer selling the mounting brackets / rails needed to install the drive. I have had a fruitless look through the internet for a number of weeks now and hope that someone in the forum may be able to suggest a solution to the problem... anybody know a source for the brackets? Is there a parts site somewhere ive missed? Anyone happen to have what im after? Or any alternative suggestions?

24" Depth Rails/mounting Kit For Supermicro 2U CSE-825TQ/SC-825

May 30, 2008

Basically, I bought this case:


and didn't forsee any problems as we have lots of servers with this case at work (which is where I am co-locating the server) but I didn't realize that the racks we have those servers in are setup for a longer depth (like 26-30 inches) instead of 24 inches like the rest of the racks. Well the problem is that all employee stuff is limited to two different racks and both are 24" depth racks so the rails which came with the chassis (26 inch) will not work. Does anyone know of anywhere I could get a 24" rack mount kit which will work with the supermicro SC-825 2U case?

Hard Drive Mounting

Dec 3, 2007

I am going to mount my new hard drive to /home/user/public_html but I have a question before I do so. If I upload stuff to /home/user/public_html will it go to my new hard drive that I just mounted there or will it still go in the old hard drive?

The reason why I want to mount it there is because my other hard drive ran out of space, and I would like to continue this user account's space without having to move this user.

New Dell Poweredge Rails Too Short

May 6, 2008

We have a rack with a bunch of Dell servers in them. The distance between the front vertical mounting brackets and the rear vertical mounting brackets is just over 28 inches (715 mm). We've always used Dell static rails they and they have always fitted perfectly.

We have recently received some new Poweredge 2970s with Rapid / Versa rails, and it seems that the front and rear mounting brackets are only 24 inches (609 mm) apart.

Am I missing something? I can't find any way of adjusting the length of the Rapid / Versa rails.

It looks like we are going to have to pull all the gear out of the rack, move the rear mounting brackets forward, and put everything back in. This is a real nuisance (and I would do pretty much anything to avoid it).

/usr/tmpDSK 485M 14M 447M 3% /tmp

the problem is that I have /dev/sda5 mounted to var. I want cPanel to use this HDD as the main storage for the /home directory. How do I make cPanel use this hdd for storage?

Mounting Drive Between Win-Linux (ntfs & Ext3)

Jul 25, 2007

I wanted to mount a Usb portable drive of some data I have inside my Linux server and make them read on my Windows xp.

The drive has been formatted as ext3 and it just won't show in "my computer" inside Windows unless I reformat it again as ntfs.

The same turns around if if I format as ntfs, and i can't mount it under linux with the message "mount: unknown file system type 'ntfs'"

Problem with . they turned off my server and tell me :

To turn on the server, we require:

If you do not want to lose your data, you may purchase secondary HDD so you can
transfer your data to the secondary hard drive.

FYI : mounting the old hdd is not our responsibility

If I do step 2 .Is it Possible ? (I need All data)

I think if I mounting a new Hdd , I lose All data -

Mounting A HDD

Jul 14, 2007

I read a few threads and it seems as simple as fdisking the drive and then mounting it, but im a little scared..

so if someone has a proper step by step guide to do this can they please help me..

at the moment i have a 40GB ( ide, i think ) hdd and a secondary 250GB IDE hdd, i also have servercp installed and i think im on fedora 6..

Now i dont want to just type fdisk dev/hdb incase that is my first 40gb hdd, i dont mind losing the extra data on it i just dont want to format the OS and stuff was im on an un-managed server and will cost me time / money for them to re-install it all..

is there a ssh command to list all the hdd's connected to the server and to tell me what size they are, and where they are on the server before i start formatting, fdisking and mounting them?

Data Lost , But Still Have Old Home Drive , How To Copy To New Drive

Jan 26, 2007

1- i did Os Reload with new Hard drive for "home"
2- data "backups" drive lost

3- replaced the old home drive as "/old drive"

4- " /old drive " is now the secondry drive in my server and it has the all sites usres and evry thing

5- what i need , to trasfer, copy this sites from " /old drive " to "home"

but data center said

The /olddrive/home directory contains the contents that were previously in the /home directory. You can copy files from this directory to any other directory on your server.

The command to copy files in the UNIX environment is the "cp" command.

The user directories in /olddrive/home directory contain the web page files for the users. However, simply copying the contents over will not recreate the users or domain entries in DNS/httpd. If you wish these back you will need to recreate them manually or restore them from backups.

Dell Drives In A RAID Array With Non-Dell Drives

Sep 14, 2009

I have a couple of Dell 1950s and in one of them, I have 2x Seagate 15K.5s that I purchased through Dell and I also have a spare sitting in my rack in case one goes bad, also from Dell.

I was going to be repurposing one of my other 1950s and was going to get two more 15K.5s for it, but wasn't planning on getting them through Dell (rip off?). This way, could still keep the same spare drive around in case a drive went bad in that system as well.

When I was talking to my Dell rep recently when purchasing another system, their hardware tech said you can't use non-Dell drives with Dell drives in the same RAID array because of the different firmware between them.

Anyone know if it is true? Anyone have any experience with using drives from Dell in conjunction with the same model drives from a third party retailer?

Drive Corrupt, Recovery From 2nd Drive Mount

Feb 16, 2007

Primary drive (centos/cpanel) is corrupt

The server is displaying these errors when I tried to do an FSCK:
Bad inode IO
ext3-fs error (device(8,3)) IO Failure

I am having a new primary installed and old primary set as 2nd drive. I need to recover the cpanel domain accounts from this 2nd drive after I mount it with the method below:

mkdir /backup
mount /dev/sdb1 /backup

However, how do I actually recover these accounts in an automated process via whm? I've done this before with the same matter (corrupt primary drive, mount as 2nd, etc) but cannot exactly remember the proper steps.

Issue Mounting RAID Perc Partition

May 19, 2007

We had a problem on one of our servers and it was running RAID 1 with two 300GB SAS.

When I boot the server I have the following issue,
PXE:E61: Media test failure, check cable

I searched through all the net but couldnt find a solution that helped me.

Now I took one of the HDDs out and installed as slave on another Linux server. One of the HDDs says when I do /sbin/fdisk -l,
no partition table for /dev/sdb (something like that)

The other HDD have all the partition table,


The big partition (probably when I have my data) is under /dev/sdb2, although when I try to mount that partition I get the following error,

mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/sdb2
missing codepage or other error
In some cases useful is found in syslog - try
dmesg | tail or so

Is any command specific for mounting RAID partitions or the HD is gone ?

I really need the data that are inside it.

Drive Corrupt - Should I Ask For New Drive Or Reimage

Jul 9, 2007

I have a dedicated box and I started getting Input/output errors today.

I tried:
# fsck
fsck 1.40-WIP (14-Nov-2006)
e2fsck 1.40-WIP (14-Nov-2006)
/dev/hda2: recovering journal
fsck.ext3: unable to set superblock flags on /dev/hda2

then I tried:
# fsck -a -t ext3 /dev/hda2
fsck 1.40-WIP (14-Nov-2006)
/dev/hda2: recovering journal
fsck.ext3: unable to set superblock flags on /dev/hda2

My data is backed up, so was going to ask for a reimage, but is this an indication of bad hardware? Should I ask for a replacement drive? Is there anything else I should try on my own before going to the host?

Best Hosting For Rails

Apr 10, 2008

I don't wanna say "rails-specific" hosts because I'll be hosting some python/PHP, but I want a host run by a team who actually know and use Ruby on Rails themselves. Deployment shouldn't be a pain, and it should be VPS. My budget is $25/mo for now, as I don't need much space or bandwidth until I begin scaling the sites.

I will be hosting numerous rails sites, so memory might be a problem if I'm using mongrel... but performance wise, is mongrel the best?

Right now I'm looking at SliceHost, HostingRails, and Linode.
