I have an IBM x3200 M3 server running SBS2011. This server has an LSI SAS1063e controller (the basic BR10il RAID controller that comes with that system). Already existing was a RAID1 array of two 500GB SAS drives.
I have inserted two 2TB WD Red drives into the system, with the goal of creating a second RAID1 array for archival storage. This was done while the system was shut down. Upon starting it up and opening the MegaRAID Storage Manager (which is the latest version from the IBM site for this server model) I can see my existing array, as well as one of the new unconfigured drives (but not the second one).
I thought it might be that the drive wasn't fully inserted or something similar, so I pulled that drive out and reinserted it. This didn't help, so I took both of the unconfigured drives out and swapped their positions (the drive that was in bay 3 is now in bay 4, and vice versa). Unfortunately now neither of them are detected by the controller.
What steps do I need to go through in order to get the controller to detect the two new drives that I know are plugged in? I would prefer not to shut the server down, but will if it is necessary.
