I have a HP ProLiant MicroServer G7 N54L which came with one 250Gb hdd which I installed Ubuntu on. It also has a 2Tb external USB hdd connected - all this, is working perfectly fine.
When I loaded another SATA hdd into the 2nd bay, it isn't detected in the BIOS or for me to even mount. I can see all sorts of others with similar issues online that all mention smart array and array configuration tools in the boot loader etc etc but I'm unsure where to find any of this.
There doesn't appear to be anything of significance to this in the BIOS. I don't believe the server is faulty as it is aleady working fine with a SATA hdd in the 1st bay (I also tested the other bays the hdd isn't detected in any of them, the hdd also works in another system).
What am I missing? There must be something else required in order to load multiple hdd's into this server?
The hdd that I can't get to work in the ProLiant by the way is a:-
- Manufacturer: Western Digital
- Model No: WD10EARS
- Interface: SATA 3Gb/s
- Capacity: 1Tb
- Cache: 64Mb
- Form factor: 3.5 inch
