Hello I am trying to configure raid on a PERC 4 running in a PowerEdge 1850. When I go into the bios configuration for the raid controller the drives I have attached are not present. Specifically when I go to the easy configuration screen all I see is "Processor" and no drives. Any ideas on what I am doing wrong? These drives are Ultra 320 SCSI. Is there a jumper or something else that I need to set on the drives perhaps?
This is rather embarrassing but it's also comical so I'll post it anyway. I could entertain you with saying I had to upgrade the firmware or something. In my haste and excitement I forgot to load the drives into the box :) I was not working facing the front so this was not obvious for a few minutes. Since I was using used parts fear led me to the dark-side, fearing that I had bought bad or out-dated parts. But yes your RAID array will show zero physical disks .. if you don't physically load them. Thankfully it didn't take me too long to realize this :)
