I've actually managed to install Ubuntu 11.04, and it doesn't like any versions above that. However the OS seems very slow, is it meant to run like that on a server like this? I mean it has 2 x Xeons and 10 GB of RAM...
I have just installed Ubuntu 10.10 and am now upgrading to 11.04. Hopefully it will work! How do I check whether the 2 CPUs and 10GB of RAM are installed?
I left the dates out because I thought they were kind of irrelevant, as you say, they could be years old.

I have just run the "omreport system esmlog" command and got a few errors back, the machine freezes whenever I open up Firefox so I'm going to have to type some of them out, please excuse the typo's I might make: Severity: Critical Description: System software event - Event Logging for single bit errors had been disabled Severity: Critical Description: ESM Frt I/O Temp temperature sensor detected a failure (50.0 C) Severity: Critical Description: ESM Frt I/O Temp temperature sensor returned from failure (48.0 C) Severity: Critical Description: System software event - Event Logging for single bit errors has been disabled There are all the Critical errors, although some of these repeat themselves, so there is not point in repeating what I have just typed. And here is what comes up when I type in "uname -a": Linux ubuntu 2.6.18-92.1.10.e15.centos.plusPAE #1 SMP Thu Aug 7 12:55:59 EDT 2008 i686 i686 i386 GNU/Linux Again, thanks for the help!
Just ran the command. Should I post all of it? Or what parts should I post? P.S.- For some reason, it's really slow. I know it's running off a CD, but it's really slow.
Booted off the live CD! Booted into the CD fine. I have never used Linux before, so I don't know what commands to type in to access the error log files. Please help.

Awesome! I have been looking for a simple answer like that towards SCSI and RAID! Thank you so much! Are there any good diagrams out there on where the motherboard jumpers are? And which ones to 'jump'? And all the PCI and expansion slots are empty. Aww, that sucks! It would have been useful if it did support USB. Ah, that's why they take long to boot, I've been wondering that as well. I thought I just had a bad machine or something. It doesn't really matter though, they are usually on 24/7. I heard that Ubuntu requires something to see both CPUs, was this the case with you, or did it work straight away? And which version of Ubuntu are you running? OK, so what version of Ubuntu should I install? (And should I still think about installing Ubuntu, as Jonathan said it wasn't a supported OS?) Again, thanks for the reply.
I'll give the OpenManage Live CD a go and see what it gives back.
Thank you very much for the reply, I was starting to think that I wasn't going to get one! Woops, I added 2650 into the tags, but for some reason is didn't register it. I have added it, and checked... See more...
Thank you very much for the reply, I was starting to think that I wasn't going to get one! Woops, I added 2650 into the tags, but for some reason is didn't register it. I have added it, and checked that it has been added now. When I said: "I don't know what this SCSI thing is". I meant that in the BIOS, you can check either SCSI or RAID for the RAID Controller, if I recall correctly. I meant that I didn't know whether to choose RAID or SCSI, I went with RAID as I have worked with RAID before. When I power the other one on nothing shows up on screen (or the little display at the front of the machine, just a blank, blue screen), the fans run just fine and the same lights on the 'working' 2650 can also be found on the broken one. Is it possible to boot off a USB drive? Because in the BIOS, there is no feature to do so, as it might be an option to think about is possible. Another quick question to a fellow 2650 user, is it supposed to take a few minutes to boot up, a I really do not know how long they are supposed to take as I have never worked with servers before. Also, does Ubuntu recognise the 2 CPUs? And how about more than 4 GB of RAM (as it is a 32 bit system and I will have 10 GB in mine eventually if I can)? Again, thank you for the reply and thank you in advance for any further assistance you give me to attempt to fix this issue.

Hey, I am new to this forum, as well as servers, although I have a reasonable amount of knowledge with building computers. Recently I bought 2 x Dell PowerEdge 2650 and an Intel Server off Ebay. I found that the Intel and  one of the Dell's were fried (I'm guessing it's a motherboard issue). The last Dell is working completely fine and I have configured a RAID 1 array and 2 regular volumes (I also don't know what this SCSI thing is). I tried plugging in an old Windows 7 Professional (64 bit) CD into the machine, when the installer finally came up, which took forever it gave me an error, saying the CPUs didn't support 64 bit.  I then found an old Ubuntu CD (not knowing whether is was 32 or 64 bit) and plugged it in. It also gave an error, although it was a generic error, and didn't specify anything about 32 or 64 bit problems. I still assumed it was because it was 64 bit. So I burned a new CD with 32 bit Ubuntu on it and plugged it into the machine. After a while it came up with the Ubuntu background and a toolbar on top, displaying only a WiFi, Keyboard, and Volume icons in the top right of the screen, although no installer showed up. I left it for a few hours, and found that nothing had changed, and the exact same thing was displaying onscreen.  I really have no idea what to do. The guy I bought them from said that he didn't think that the Intel and one of the Dell's were working but this Dell was pretty new and hadn't been used that much. Obviously he had wiped the drives, so no OS.  Any responses are welcome, and if anyone has any advise for running servers, or anything then please leave a quick response.
