help on proliant ml370 g3

i have proliant ml370 g3 rack mountable server
it has smart array 6400 controller card
i connected the hard disks to drive cage, and connect the drive cage to array controller

when the server boots up it gives error message

1776 slot 2 SCSI buss error, Single-Ended SCSI enclosure or device attached this controller model only supports LVD enclosures and devices

if i remove the cable from drive cage to controller card, that error message does not appear, it says 'no drives detected'

what might be the problem

Check you SCSI ID order and verify that the SCSI IDs are correct. Also there needs to terminator on the SCSI channel. Do you have one?  

Any chance you just plugged in the Hard drives without setting the SCSI IDs.  If you replaced a drive compare the jumper settings to the old one and make them the same. I hope this helps, its just a thought.

You have the wrong type(Single-Ended SCSI) hard drive or enclosure installed, and the controller only supports LVD(low voltage differential) hard drive and enclosures.

Have you determined yet if the drives are Single-Ended SCSI or LVD type?

I believe it is "ctrl + A" to open the SCSI controller utility at boot time. It will display the availiable SCSI Channels
There will probably be two of them. You can perform a scan. It will show you detected scsi devices. As well as thier IDs.

or

You can pull the drives. Look at the jumpers on the back and compare them to the legend(map) on the HD Sticker on the top. If it doesn't show have a legend then you can retrieve it online. The SCSI Ids need to be unique for each drive. I would number them 2 to 7 . I can't remeber the rule but i dont think you can go higher than a certain number. I think that number is 7.

Also Sparkmaker is right we could help more if we knew the model number or the drives.  Hope this helps

The hard drive is LVD capable, what drive storage model are you using.
