I'm hoping this is the right place to ask. I recently received a new HL DL380 Gen8 server, on which I want to install Server 2012 R2 via Intelligent Provisioning.
According to the specifications, there's no FBWC installed. On POST, the server reports the following error:
"HP Dynamic Smart Array B320i RAID Controller 1746-Drive Array – Unsupported Storage Connection Detected – SAS connection via expander is not supported on this controller model. Access to all storage has been disabled. Upgrade controller or detach the expander based storage connections."
Does the lack of FBWC have anything to do with that? Neither ACU or Intelligent Provisioning are able to see the harddrives, so I'm unable to create an array. The drives are original HP-drives (http://h30094.www3.hp.com/product/sku/10389317)
The server was installed by our supplier, when we received it here, so I'd assume it was installed correctly.
Any tips on how to proceed from here?
