ML310 G4 - Reload Help

I have inherited the roll of System Admin. for our family company. I have worked in IT for awhile but not on the server side. The company will not hire a consultant so I have to figure this out on my own. We recently purchased a ML310 G4 server with SBS 2003 R2 - Premium pre-installed. I would like to reload this from scratch so I have an idea what to do if I need to reload down the road. I noticed I started the server up with the SmartStart CD but I am not sure what steps to take after that. Any help would be appreciated...just point me in the right direction.

You can use the System Erase Utility from the Smart Start CD

Hi Pete74

once load the SmartStart CD (SS)
you will find a SS homepage
(http://h18004.www1.hp.com/products/servers/management/smartstart/index.html)

- select maintain Server
- Go to Array Diagnostic Utility(ACU)
(configure the RAID Level you want)
just in case link for ACU manual, page 13
http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bc/docs/support/SupportManual/c00294139/c00294139.pdf
- after that go to SS homepage again and click on Deploy Server
- follow the steps like: OS, serial number and so on
-after that is going to ask you for the windows CD and after that it's a normal windows installation


those are the basics take your time doing it
