I have tested several solutions but non of them cant detect my 2 hard drives (legacy mode , acpi and raid embended)
I have a 2 Dell-Seagate SAS Cheetah 15k,7 hard drives (ST3300657SS) (they are not brand new and was used on another server)
The hard drives cant not be detect by the system on the boot.
On the boot system tries with lights on a caddies to sync hard drives but ends with no lights.
Maybe its not compatible or i need licence to activate SAS? Jumpers?
- Is there an OS on these disks? (i dont know... and i dont have nay other place to test)
- Are these disks in HP drive carriers? (yes, this ones http://i01.i.aliimg.com/wsphoto/v15/803906963_1/HDD-font-b-tray-b-font-651687-001-2-5-SAS-SATA-Hard-Disk-font-b.jpg )
- What OS are you trying to use? (Freebsd in the setup cant detect them eather)
- Which RAID controller is installed? (on this server its Dynamic Smart array B120i Raid )
THE FINAL SOLUTION : http://h20565.www2.hp.com/hpsc/doc/public/display?docId=emr_na-c03326739 PAGE 5 compatible only with Hot-plug SATA drives and SATA SSD bot SAS.
