Make sure you are in the correct directory in the command prompt when you are running the copy command. "/b" is not referring to a directory to place the files in, but a command-line switch to tell copy that it's appending a binary file.

I recently set up a Dell 1950 II as a 3D laser scanning work station with dual pci-e x16 graphics cards. The process is remarkably simple but requires the removal of the DRAC 5 Remote Management card located on the motherboard under the right pci bay (when viewed from the front). If you cannot do without the DRAC functions proceed no further as the only ...

Admit to your boss you made a mistake. Tell him you'll deal with it by calling Dell and that you'll pay out of pocket if need be, chances are this little game you're playing will get you in more trouble than just simply admitting you didn't know what you were doing and broke it on accident.

No. EMT64T refers to intel's implementation of the 64 bit extensions to the x86 architecture. VT-enabled refers to the processor/motherboard combo supporting the VT-X extentions. There are also VT-D extentions which are necessary for some VM software to have direct, or near direct access to hardware You should be able to run virtualbox with no issues ...

There are significant benefits to keeping the same amount of RAM on each channel of a single CPU. There are some benefits, but not much, to keeping the same amount of RAM on each CPU. Each CPU can access memory connected to the other CPU almost as efficiently as it can access its own. It's so close to the same that today's operating systems and software don'...

The Pentium you bought is one of the new(ish) ones derived from the Core 2 line. Just because it physically fits in the machine does not mean it is compatible. Sometimes you can get lucky and other times like now - unfortunately you are not lucky! If it isn't working with the latest BIOS update, it means that it is not compatible - you can live in hope ...

An r710 is a bit expensive (and loud) to be using as a desktop. You need to buy a new video card though. Something that is PCI Express and supports dual monitors. My opinion is that you should sell the r710 if you're not going to use it as a server. Then you can buy yourself a proper workstation.

Why are you trying to install Windows 7 on a server? From the tech specs: Operating System Microsoft® Windows Server® 2012 Microsoft Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1, x64 (includes Hyper-V® v2) Novell® SUSE® Linux Enterprise Server Red Hat® Enterprise Linux® Virtualization options: Citrix® XenServer® VMware® vSphere® ESX™...

WLAN service is not installed by default in Windows Server 2008. In order to turn on Wireless LAN and WLAN AutoConfig service in Windows Server 2008 and Windows Server 2008 R2, go to Server Manager (in Administrator Tools). Go to Features branch and click on Add Features. Click and tick the check box for Wireless LAN Service. Complete the installation wizard ...

As the R710 dates from 2009/2010, component failure is always a possibility. Dell documentation (although for the R410) says : Alert! System fatal error during previous boot. An error caused the system to reboot. Check other system messages for additional information for possible causes. As the only other message I see is about the fan speed, I think ...

That message is coming from the BIOS asking you to continue. That means the motherboard saw something it did not like at the hardware level. The OS would not have done that and it and would have logged something to the messages file if it had been given the chance to. I would request a full diag be run on the server. the F1/F2 prompt is usually a BIOS mis-...

Assuming you can reach the server via RDP from within the LAN, all you have to do is set up port forwarding on your router. The default RDP port is 3389. Sometimes ISPs have a firewall externally, and in that case you would need to forward another incoming port which is more likely to be open, e.g. 443, to your server internally. This challenge has ...

Yes it does take a fair amount of work to quiet the Dell C6100 Servers but has been done by many. Part of the challenge is the stock fans used by Dell are 13,500RPM PWM fans @ 72dba each and dell uses non-standard wiring. L55xx L56xx Series Xeon CPUs use less power and make less heat you need to cool. Important when using slower quiet Fans (very ...

Have you looked at the online version of the 2850 specs? The spec sheet speaks of 16 GiB with a footnote "availability scheduled for 2005". https://www.dell.com/downloads/global/products/pedge/en/2850_specs.pdf Memory: 256MB/12GB DDR-2 400 SDRAM; 16GB with availability of dual rank 4GB DIMMs

Obviously I am not an ESXi expert or I would likely not have found this thread, but wouldn't it be easier to setup a VPN tunnel and just VPN into the network? So long as you have remote desktop (or ssh for linux/mac) turned on for each vm, which has to be configured anyhow, then you would only need the ports forwarded to the VPN server to gain access.

In order to set up what you require you will need to set up port forwarding rules for each VM you have (I assume you don't have a collection of static IPs to hand). This will also include changing the listening port for each VM you have with Remote Desktop enabled. If you wish to access your host OS then connect to your router (Default Gateway) admin page ...

Check the power system profile in the BIOS and try setting it to 'Performance'. We've found a variety issues when the system is in power efficient mode. In addition to reduced storage i/o we've seen high latency on 10GbE networking and poor VM performance when the system is a hypervisor. But like your situation, the problems only manifest after the system ...

From looking in the manual, the power button only performs a graceful shutdown if the operating system is ACPI compliant. By the looks of the answer here, you might need to get the acpi-support package or, according to the second answer, the acpid package. You could give either of those a try. Hardware Information directly from the Dell Poweredge 2950 ...

You must have Windows Server 2003 Standard 32-bit, which only supports 4gb RAM. You'll have to switch to 64-bit version (supports upto 32gb) or upgrade to Enterprise edition (supports upto 64gb).

Most likely you'll need to reformat the Cruzer with exFAT or FAT32 rather than NTFS, which it seems as though the T110's BIOS does not support.

The specs say that the R300 only has two x8 PCIe slots, so you are not going to be able to use nearly every graphics card available, as they need a x16 slot. It's not a suitable server for graphics cards. Matrox do make a graphics card which only needs a x1 slot, but as it only has one port, you would have to make sure that the onboard graphics do not ...

No, that is not the same thing. EM64T simply means that it supports "long mode", or 64-bit memory addressing mode. Not all Intel CPUs support VT. What exact model is it? If your BIOS doesn't show it, it probably doesn't have it.

This is the response I got from Dell: "The memory controller is embedded in the processor with the new DDR3 memory you can only populate the memory channels that have a processor associated with it." So I guess that's out...

The Dell configurator seems to show 96GB with one processor and 192GB with two. Kingston indicates the max with no mention of processor but checking with Dell support will likely get the definitive answer.

You will need: A new video card and earplugs to use the R710 as a workstation. Don't forget the earplugs. It will not be happy to be sitting on a desk without a nice free airflow and it will signal its displeasure by making its fans scream at incredibly high volume.

If you have Remote Desktop or VNC running on the server, you can use that. There is no (realistic) way to connect the laptop display directly to the server. Unless the laptop has video capture, and the server has something like an s-video out. But it doesn't.
