Creating Ramdisk on Target Server


Novell Platespin Migrate comes with a target iso (based on XP 32-bit
os), which is used to make the destination server a target or slave
machine, but in order for this to work, the iso has software that
creates a RAM drive by using the machine's memory RAM. I got this
process to work on a Dell 2950 and R610, both Intel architectures, but
it fails on a Dell R715 (AMD architecture). Any thoughts as to why I
can't get it to work on Dell AMD servers? I haven't tried it on another
vendor's AMD server.

Re: Creating Ramdisk on Target Server


What actually happens when you try the ISO? Also, what version of
Migrate are you using? Migrate 9.2 supports a WinPE3-based ISO (Windows
7) and if needed the support team can customize a WinPE 2.1 (Vista) ISO
for you as well (both ISOs require Windows 2008 32-bit drivers, though
WinPE 3 will also work with Windows 7 32-bit drivers).

My best guess is that the ISO doesn't have the right drivers to boot
properly. It's also possible that the Dell R715 doesn't have a BIOS
version that plays nicely with the ISO. Either way, try another ISO and
other AMD-based hardware if you can. If this is driver-related (for
example, if you're getting a stop 7B), you'll need to open an SR to get
assistance from the support team. Provide the drivers and the team can
get an ISO for you.
