Proliant 3000 RAID CD missing

I may be inheriting a Proliant 3000 Server.

It is a big looking puppy with six SCSI disks.

What seems to be missing is the utility for managing the RAID array.

The current configuration has five disks configured with one hot spare. I'd like to change that. The current owners of the server are not sure where the proper CD is located.

Is this downloadable and if so, where might I find it. If not, how do I obtain a replacement cd.

Re: Proliant 3000 RAID CD missing

You will need the array config utility (ACU) it can be found at the url below. All files for your system are here

for windows 2000

Thank you and enjoy your Rabbit.

It took me a lot longer to earn my first solution.

I'm assuming I write this utility to a CD and execute it.

Nope, this version of the ACU tool only works within the OS (NT4 or W2K/3).

If you want ACU (Array Configuration Utility) to run from a CD, you'll have to get your hands on a SmartStart CD but only if the version is lower than 6.x otherwise it'll not support your server (so f.i. 5.50).
Also, make sure that the version of ACU supports your Smart Array controller which you did not mention in your request.
You can try this floppy based W32-bit version, ftp://ftp.compaq.com/pub/softpaq/sp14001-14500/sp14286.exe but is still needs an OS to run in (maybe you have a bootable CD?).

Re: Proliant 3000 RAID CD missing

From the post above I found version 6.3. Do you mean thats wrong and won't work?

I've been busy erasing a HP-9000 server so I have not laid hands on the Proliant in a few days.

I plan to make a CD. Boot off floppy and then execute the exe. Hopefully that will work
