COMPAQ Proliant 8000 - File Corruption

By jdecola ·
We have a Compaq Proliant 8000, we are experiencing database corruption. It isn't consistent with being in a certain area on the hard drive. Oracle is saying there may be something wrong with our disk array controllers. So far we have shut off Compaq Insight Manager and corruption seems to have gone away after we run DB Verify against the database on another server (Proliant 5000). We have 2GB of memory and it was suggested we up to 3 or 4 GB memory on the server. We have run Disk Array Controller Diagnostic Utility against and it is showing no errors.Any suggestions ?

COMPAQ Proliant 8000 - File Corruption

The insight agents should work fine, unless you are running Oracle and have their SNMP agents loaded and running.
My suggestions are the following:
1) Upgrade the BIOS
2) Upgrade the firmware on your drives AND your array controller
3) Run the CPQ support utility and upgrade where needed (especially the SCSI driver)
4) If all else fails go into the f10 config- go into advanced mode, clear the NVRAM, re-run the hardware config.
I had a 6500 running MS SQL 6.5 and it had a really wierd problem, after the third time it died- we cleared the NVRAM and it solved it. Basically the BIOS was looking for disks that werent there (and never had been).
Hope this fixes it for you! SFO
