Win2k3: NTDetect Failed And SATA Hard Disk

Sep 12, 2009

trying to get my Win2k3 Standard R2 server to work.


I did some Windows update around 3am this morning but during the update process. I lost Remote desktop connection as my machine is do several attempts to connect with the remote server. I cancel the attempt after several try. I figure i can remote desktop back in again if i wait for a bit but I couldn't re-establish the connection with my remote server. So, I drove to the Datacenter to check it out and it turn out the machine have rebooted and I'm stuck with "NTDetect failed" error message. After some googling, I was trying to fix this error by copying NTLDR and NTDetect.COM into C: but when i tried to use the Win2k3 CD to go into Windows Setup and repair. I got an error message telling me that "Setup did not find any hard disk drives installed in your computer...".

After some googling, I found the two Maxtor SATA hard disks might be the problem and one soultion that i found was to disable the SATA or set it to IDE since the motherboard have nvida RAID controller onboard. I check the BIOS and the RAID is set to disabled and then i tried to disable SATA and only enable IDE. It still give me the same error message about not able to find any hard disk.

I'm on my last rope here. I'm short of reformatting the hard disk and do a fresh reinstall but I will like to avoid this.

Does anyone know if cancel Remote desktop connection attempt during Windows update process cause this NTdetect failed problem or something else that might related to my hardware. I can assure you that two SATA hard disks shown on BIOS.

The soultion to NTDecte failed problem seem to be just copying NTLDR and into C: but since i can't even get to Repair mode during Windows setup with no disk install error. Can someone recommand how to solve this problem?

The motherboard that i use is ASUS M2N-MX SE AM2 NVIDIA GeForce6100 / nForce430 and the BIOS is American Megatrends Inc.

Disk Writes Extremely Slow On SATA RAID

Jan 10, 2008

I'm running into a problem with a relatively new (2 months old) server. I have just a few accounts on it, and I'm already noticing unusual loads, for the... load. After some benchmarking with bonnie++ (and plain old "dd") there is clearly a problem.

Version 1.03b ------Sequential Output------ --Sequential Input- --Random-
-Per Chr- --Block-- -Rewrite- -Per Chr- --Block-- --Seeks--
Machine Size K/sec %CP K/sec %CP K/sec %CP K/sec %CP K/sec %CP /sec %CP
SERVER NAME 2G 9096 16 7725 2 2543 0 20609 32 621627 55 +++++ +++

Isn't a write-speed over 7MB/s reasonable to expect? Also look at the low CPU times...

Anyway running the same test on a similar but older AND busier server showed much better results than this. In fact dd'ing a 1GB file from /dev/zero "finished" in about 10 seconds but then pegged the server at 99% iowait (wa) for a full three minutes (until done being written from cache I assume), bringing load to 15.00

That's all the info I have so far... the data center just replaced the card (which gave no errors) with no effect. Running these benchmark tests is about the extend of my hardware experience.

SATA 7k RAID 1 Vs. 2xSATA 10k Vs. SATA+SAS

Jul 3, 2008

I'm currently in the process of ordering a new server and would like to throw another $50-$70 at the default SATA II 7k 250 GB to increase performance. The server will host a site similar to WHT (php, mysql, and some forum traffic ).

There are three options I can get for the price:

1. Add another SATA II 7k 250 GB and set up RAID 1
2. Add a 73GB 15k RPM SA-SCSI and put mySQL on it. No RAID.
3. Toss out the SATA II 7k and take two SATA 10k 150 GB instead. Put mySQL on one of them. No RAID.

Please keep in mind that the question is budget-related (I know I can get more if I spend an extra $200 but that's not what I want ). Which of the above will make me happiest?

Plesk 12.x / Linux :: How To Reinstall Fail2Ban Entirely

May 7, 2015

So on our server, fail2ban got itself in a mess. Tried various things to fix, to no avail, so figured I'd just do a fresh install of it. There was minimal customisation to it that I couldn't re-do.

Note I'd already rm'd /etc/fail2ban - as on previous attempts, the files in here didn't appear to be restored to their defaults. So I figured removing the directory would force this to happen (Whether this was wise I'm not sure!) ;-)

So, following instructions here: [URL] .... I now get the following:

# wget
# gunzip fail2ban.gz
# mv fail2ban /etc/init.d/fail2ban
# chmod 755 /etc/init.d/fail2ban
# ll /etc/init.d/fail2ban /etc/fail2ban/fail2ban.conf
ls: cannot access /etc/fail2ban/fail2ban.conf: No such file or directory
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 2141 Aug 15 2014 /etc/init.d/fail2ban

I then uninstall/reinstall with # /usr/local/psa/admin/bin/autoinstaller

(Have tried via the web interface too)

I then get:

# ll /etc/init.d/fail2ban /etc/fail2ban/fail2ban.conf
ls: cannot access /etc/fail2ban/fail2ban.conf: No such file or directory
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 2141 Aug 15 2014 /etc/init.d/fail2ban

i.e., no change..

and if I go to the fail2ban settings in Plesk, I get:

Internal error: f2bmng failed: ERROR:f2bmng:No section: 'Definition'
Message f2bmng failed: ERROR:f2bmng:No section: 'Definition'

Is there a way to regenerate what should be in /etc/fail2ban by default?

Plesk 12.x / Linux :: Restoring Backup After Server Reinstall

Mar 18, 2015

Is it enough to restore the full server backup via the web interface of Plesk to get everything running fine after a reinstall, or is there something else I should do ? I have all kind of backups (server, domains, customers). My server is running Plesk 12 on Ubuntu 12, and I think I will have Ubuntu 14 on the new installation. My backups are on a server on the same local network than my server.

Disk Image To Disk Partition (Xen)

Sep 1, 2008

can a Xen disk image be converted to a diskpartition?

Someone is asking whether I can host his disk image at his current host, which he is leaving for poor I/O (wonder why that would be ). I can host a diskimage, but I don't like diskimages (slow, and 100GB isn't very 'comfortable' either). Is there any way out there to convert a disk image into a normal partition?

Plesk 12.x / Linux :: After Full Reinstall Imap Doesn't Work Anymore

Mar 20, 2015

I'm using Ubuntu 14.04.2 LTS and Plesk 12.0.18 - update 38. Since i have reinstalled 3 servers, i don't have imap connection possible in some case.

- When i connect from a Thunderbird, it works only if it's not secure : any attempt with ssl is refused.

- When i try to use a smartphone with the same working config done in Thunderbird, i canno't log whatever i do to find something working on the smartphone (note : it's works with pop)

- Horde refuse all users. If i switch to Roundcube, all works...

There is something wrong : i search the web, the forum, for 14 days now, without success. I tried many thing from the success either.

Am I Really On A SATA

Mar 28, 2009

I rented a new server. I check WD6400AAKS, it's indeed a SATA drive. However, why is the label says hda and hdc? Isn't it supposed to be sda and sdc?

Is it true DMA is not needed for my SATA?

Is my disk performance to slow? Does the performance suggest it's a IDE disk?

Here is what on my WHM

hda: WDC WD6400AAKS-65A7B0, ATA DISK drive
hdc: WDC WD6400AAKS-65A7B0, ATA DISK drive
hda: max request size: 512KiB
hda: 1250263728 sectors (640135 MB) w/16384KiB Cache, CHS=65535/255/63
hda: cache flushes supported
hdc: max request size: 512KiB
hdc: 1250263728 sectors (640135 MB) w/16384KiB Cache, CHS=65535/255/63
hdc: cache flushes supported

root@abc [~]# hdparm /dev/hda

multcount = 16 (on)
IO_support = 1 (32-bit)
unmaskirq = 1 (on)
using_dma = 0 (off)
keepsettings = 0 (off)
readonly = 0 (off)
readahead = 256 (on)
geometry = 65535/255/63, sectors = 1250263728, start = 0
root@abc [~]# hdparm -Tt /dev/hda

Timing cached reads: 12040 MB in 1.99 seconds = 6036.46 MB/sec
Timing buffered disk reads: 24 MB in 3.20 seconds = 7.49 MB/sec

about SSD vs SCSI vs SATA HDDs?

I heard that SSD are slow in writing, but fast in reading.
is this true?

80GB Intel X25-M SSD is the model i am looking at.

Is this HDD recommended on servers? will this perform better then SCSI or SATA RAID10?

how this works, tell me more about writing

eading speeds (on SSD) etc.
