SBS 2003 on Proliant ML 350

I have a Proliant Ml 350 and i buyed microsoft small business server 2003. i have smartstartCd 6.4B and an smart array controller 642. i have four disks and i want to create 2 drives. each drive with 2 disks raid 1.

the smartstartCD doesn't take in charge the sbs 2003. it takes only windows 2003 server. so i should install it manually. is there any one that knows the steps that i should do. I want to use the array controller 642 as boot.

Jalil:

Did you try the install? I'm surprised if it won't work, after all SBS 2003 is based on W2K3.

Make a great day!

Choosing Windows 2003 server from SmartStart 6.4 should work but if you what to do a manual install:

- Select the OS in RBSU
- Set the boot controller in RBSU
- Configure Array using the smart start or the rom based setup of the controller.
- Boot off the os cd, hit F6 to specify the controller driver. It can be found @

- After the install run the ProLiant support pack for windows 2003.

Re: SBS 2003 on Proliant ML 350

well, when i choose Windows 2003 from the smartstartCD 6.4, it goes and i inser the disk 1 from SBS package. it installs the disk 1 and it reboots and this is the End and it doesn't ask to continue the installation of the rest of disks. if so, how can i continue to install the other disks of SBS 2003 ?

SBS 2003 apparently comes in DVD format. Have you tried installing from that? I would appreciate it if you could let me know, as it is something I am looking at doing.

Cheers

Hallo Scott
SBS 2003 in my case didn't come in DVD. it comes in 6 CDs and all these CDs must be installed on the same machine.
