Re: Unable to detect the CD/DVD on HP9000 server

Try to pull the power cables, wait and try again. Does this help?

Hope this helps!

Re: Unable to detect the CD/DVD on HP9000 server

Power cycle the server may help due to a firmware issue on some old internal dvd drives models.

Hope this helps!

If you pull the power cable, everything is off. If you plug in again, it take a minute before the GSP is ready.

Hope this helps!

Re: Unable to detect the CD/DVD on HP9000 server

Without a terminal or access to the GSP you cannot do anything. Take a notebook/terminal and get access to the console.

Once you have access, put the install CD in and boot from. Any problems with this?

Hope this helps!
Regards
Torsten.

Re: Unable to detect the CD/DVD on HP9000 server

now i am not able to take even the system console though i have directly connected the console to the system, i guess some serious problem might have arised due to power cable removal and then inserting it directly

Removing the cable should not produce trouble. In case of doubt try again and wait some minutes before plug in again.

Hope this helps!

Re: Unable to detect the CD/DVD on HP9000 server

Problem is the button is *inside* the server.


Any results so far?

Hope this helps!
