Re: smart array 3200

There should be an F8 key that shoudl come up on POST ..But if your server is one of those server that requires F8 to get to the BIOS (or RBSU) then make sure you pressed the second F8 because the first one will be for the BIOS

Re: smart array 3200

I'm relatively new to Compaqs but I think you would need SmartStart CD. Which version very much depends on model of your server, have a look at:


and links to details about different versions of SmartStart CD is here:


Some utilities as well as SmartStart CD you can download from HP website, just pick up model:


If you looking for older models SmartStart CD choose Windows NT 4.0, Novell NetWare 6.5 or something like that as operating system and follow to Software-CD section where you will find HP SmartStart CD link
