We recently bought a PowerVault MD3420 and I sent Dell the specs of the server I was going to use to connect it to.
They sent me a card made by LSI instead of a PERC card for controlling the RAID from our R720.
When I opened up the R720, it plugged into the PCI slot snugly. After booting the server it said it new PCI configuration detected, will reboot after power optimization.
After the reboot, nothing comes up to tell me to configure the RAID. On the PERC cards in some of the other servers, it usually says press ctrl + R to configure RAID, but nothing of that sort comes up. I looked all around the BIOS to see if I was missing something but I can only conclude that our R720 is not recognizing this RAID card. Can anyone help me verify that this is indeed the problem?
