Upgrade PE2950 from 2003 32bit to 2008 32bit

I need to upgrade a PE2950 file server. It has PERC5 for internal drives and Perc6 for an external MD1000 RAID array.

Can I just do an in-place upgrade? Will the upgrade keep/update the existing drivers?

Any other things I need to look out for?

thanks

Hi,

2008 uses a different raid driver. http://www.dell.com/support/home/us/en/19/Drivers/DriversDetails?driverId=CW1N9&fileId=3176119948&os...

 

You can try an in place upgrade, but it will probably need a clean install with the new driver.

EVANSP,

Were you able to upgrade your server ?. Did you face any issue.

I need to upgrade a PE2950 server too.

Thank you

Nevermind, I was able to make the inplace upgrade with no issues at all.
