I built my own intel server from chasis up. Everything worked fine and I installed 3 sas 2.5 hard drives and a 3.2 ghz processor, 4 gigs ram.. installed server 2008.. all worked great. THEN
I thought I would install a raid key with dimm unto the midplane. Now hard drives aren't recognized and can't do much of anything. So, when I added that raid key and dimm shouldn't it have been recognized?
HELP smart people. I spent $3500 building this thing and would like a raid 5 config but right now have nada...
The raid equipment is as follows:
FALSASMP Active SAS Midplane Kit with SAS controller (preinstalled in SR2500ALLX) 8 SAS/SATA ports N/A Active Midplane with optional ROMB upgrade (RAID 5/50) Host RAID 0,1,10 (optional ROMB upgrade using AXXRAK18E and AXXMINIDIMM installed
