BL10e G2 takes days to format and install

Morning all!

We have a whole rack of BL10's (20 of them). One of the servers needs to be rebuit. We are using the RDP system to install Windows 2000 on it. The system deploys fine on the other servers, but on this one server, it takes days to format, and then a bit more to install Windows. I was told performance of the system was unusable when it was actually finished.

So, I just dumped a new install on it. I just figured something happen when the other guy did it. But, it is having the same problems. I upgraded the RDP software, but it didn't help any.

Anyone have an idea?

Thanks,
Tom

Well, I know the firmware isn't up to date on it. I thought about that, but couldn't figure out how to do it with out an OS on it.

I might be able to pull one of the other systems.
