Hi Jeff

try first updating the server with the firmware CD
http://h18023.www1.hp.com/support/files/server/us/download/24777.html

after that try again Smartstart 5.50

what kind of error are you getting? what does it say?

It says:

Re: ML370 R01 Smartstart CD?

sorry Jeff

I tried to look for SS 6.xx mmm too difficult
I found some pages describing it but no link at all.

http://h18004.www1.hp.com/support/files/server/us/SmartStartinfo.html

it's like a ghost
well another thing according with the SS matrix 6.xx is not supported in that server
ftp://ftp.compaq.com/pub/products/servers/management/smartstart/serversupportmatrix.pdf

so Linux? right?

Re: ML370 R01 Smartstart CD?

hey Jeff

I was thinking does your server have a smart array controller?
