ProLiant "disaster recovery"


ProLiant "disaster recovery"

When installing MS patches on ProLiant servers, I use to take off the second hard disk of the mirror containing OS. The disaster recovery procedure (insert disk1, take off disk0, F2, F1............)did not work properly on a DL380 G3 server. Now I'm no more able to login into the domain, I can only login with local accounts.
I'd like to know if this procedure is still valid and, if it's not, if there's another way to rollback.

Re: ProLiant "disaster recovery"

the procedure should be still the same. Safer way to do it is: Power down machine. Pull 1 disk -F2 -F1...
But if you want to start from the pulled disk for recovery: first do a system erase to empty all smart array settings. Then place pulled disk back in its original position and switch on server......

I guess the problem you have now is due to the fact that you lost your network settings.
After restoring them you should be able to login to the domain again.
