HP MediaSmart Server - Rebuild
Love my HP MediaSmart Server BUT

HP Media Server - Final Resolution I hope

So now my server is restoring itself.


I got what I thought was all the updates, and tried to restore my backup to the server but there was no place to do that and no place to setup the external drive as a System Backup.  Everything I had said that if I added the drive to the server it would reformat.


I also had discovered that the drive that shipped with the server has failed. 

Decided to get both resolved.

Tech support looked up my S/N and sure enough it was a bad Seagate drive so they are shipping out a new one.

And why I couldn't restore?  Hadn't installed all the service packs.

So I am happily restoring now.
