Hi Again,

Just to make sure, is that the correct name of the patch I need, the "SCSI
RAID Applications Utility"
for the PERC3DI RAID controller, to monitor my RAID 1 array on the 2650?

Thanks much Steve!

While on the subject,

2650 Power Edge shipped out second week of July, 2002.  Do you know off hand
if units shipped at that time were loaded with 2.6 or 2.7 firmware for the
PERC3DI?

I'm looking for a URL for a download of the "SCSI RAID Applications Utility"
for the PERC3DI RAID controller, to monitor my RAID 1 array and RAID
controller card - is that what I need to monitor an already configured RAID
1 Install on the 2650?  Do you have a URL for these downloads? Is there a
different version for the 2.6 and the 2.7 PERC3DI SCSI utility?

If different, if I install the incorrect version for this utility remotely,
and can't access the status of my array, would this cause any problems on
server or drives, or would I just not be able to monitor my array until I
remove and then re install the correct Utility?  Is it OK to install the
tarball remotely?

Thanks much

Dan,

The CLI (Command Line Interface) commands are the same for ALL Firmware
versions of Adaptec Raid Controllers.  Either link below will work fine for
v2.5, v2.6, & v2.7.

CLI Command Reference Guide:  http://docs.us.dell.com/docs/storage/romb25/
			      -or-
http://docs.us.dell.com/docs/storage/romb26/

Hi,

Couple of questions if anyone knows the answer I'd appreciate it.  I'm
looking at the URL
http://support.dell.com/us/en/docs/index.asp?cc=7&ct=24 for the user guides
for
Dell PowerEdge Expandable RAID Controller 2, 2/Si, 3/Di, 3/Si (version 2.6)
and
Dell PowerEdge Expandable RAID Controller 3/Di Installation Guide (version
2.7)

For some reason, there is not a Dell Command Line Interface Reference Guide,
Dell Command Line Interface User's Guide or Dell Flexible Array Storage Tool
User's Guides for the 2.7.  There is however one of each for the 2.6.  Does
the 2.6 documentation also apply to the 2.7?  Or is the 2.7 documentation
missing on the Dell site by accident?

Thanks
