I have an x4100 with 4 drive slots 3 drives are part of the RAID 1E. On the RAID Array I have installed Debian. I am using the 4th slot for accessing file storage drives. The HP 600GB drive attaches successfully as an sd device. The HITACHI 146GB drive does not attach as an sd device.

Here is the dmesg for HP 600GB which worked

Here is the dmesg for HITACHI 146GB that did not work

[ 1843.665188] mptsas: ioc0: attaching ssp device: fw_channel 0, fw_id 3, phy 3, sas_addr 0x5000cca000286b05

Because the second drive does not attach as an sd device, I am not able to use lsblk or fdisk.

How can I correct this? Or is this SAS drive simply not compatible with Debian?

  • Have you considered the possibility that that disk is dead? It certainly looks dead. Feb 8 at 19:24
  • Hmm. You are probably right. I actually have 4 drives. One works. Two show dmesg like above and the 3rd does not give any dmesg at all. They are probably just dead.

  • Googling that error message certainly gives no other result than the drive is faulty. Feb 8 at 21:26
