I run a server with 2 drives in raid0 configured through BIOS. I just added 2 more drives using hotplug (the server is dell r610 with RHEL 5.4 64bit) and I would like to configure a separate raid0 partition on these drives. I am getting the following error:
/opt/MegaRAID/MegaCli/MegaCli64 -CfgLdAdd r0[32:2, 32:3] -a0
The specified physical disk does not have the appropriate attributes to complete the requested command.
Exit Code: 0x26
All the parameters are correct and there is just no reason why this command could not work, see this (fujitsu is current raid, seagate is the new one I want to create):
/opt/MegaRAID/MegaCli/MegaCli64 -PDList -aALL | egrep 'Adapter|Enclosure|Slot|Inquiry' Adapter #0 Enclosure Device ID: 32 Slot Number: 0 Enclosure position: 0 Inquiry Data: FUJITSU MBD2147RC D807D0A4PA101174 Enclosure Device ID: 32 Slot Number: 1 Enclosure position: 0 Inquiry Data: FUJITSU MBD2147RC D807D0A4PA10115T Enclosure Device ID: 32 Slot Number: 2 Enclosure position: 0 Inquiry Data: SEAGATE ST9300603SS FS033SE0TF5K Enclosure Device ID: 32 Slot Number: 3 Enclosure position: 0 Inquiry Data: SEAGATE ST9300603SS FS023SE070FK
I also tried to set up the drive as hotspare, also some strange error:
/opt/MegaRAID/MegaCli/MegaCli64 -PDHSP -Set -physdrv[32:3] -a0
Adapter: 0: Set Physical Drive at EnclId-32 SlotId-3 as Hot Spare Failed.
FW error description: The specified device is in a state that doesn't support the requested command.

As you can see the disk is in Unconfigured, Good state:
