Not "seeing" all drives attached to a controller
Posted on 2007-11-14
We are running NT4sp6 on a Proliant 3000. The controller is Smart-2DH. From the internal cage, attached to Port 1 we have 7 drives, Three 9 .1GB drives in their own array and four 18.2GB drives in their own array. Recently we attached a ProLiant Storage Model UE - Rack - (348700-001) to the external channel of the card (Port 2) with seven 36.4GB drives. When it POSTS only the first 4 drives "light up" during its diagnostic. We've run the system configuration during boot and it still only sees the first 4 drives. Same thing when we run the Array Configuration Utility, we only see the first 4 drives. Any suggestions would be appreciated on how to make the other drives appear, or why they won't, would be greatly appreciated.
