I have a HP D6000 (sometimes called MDS 600) storage array, HP DL380p G8 with an LSI 9207-8e SAS adapter.
When I am in the OmniOS (Solaris 10 fork), I can e.g.
dd to one of the disks, but I don't see the HDD led flash. On the front of the storage array are the HDD leds with numbers,
and they never light up. I suspect they should be green according to the manual:
Green: The drive is online, but is not currently active. Off: The drive is offline, a spare, or not configured as part of an array.
If I enter the LSI setup, then I get can get number and HDD to light up using the test feature.
What does the offline message above mean, and how do I active them, so I can use the disks as a JBOD for ZFS?
