I have a Dell PowerEdge 2970 with 5 Drives.  Currently I am seeing only 2 of the drives.  In the Dell OpenManage Server Administrator ->Storage -> PERC 5i/Integrated(Embeded) ->Connector 0 RAID -> Enclosure(Backplane) -> Physical Disc. Physical Disc 0:0:0, Physical Disc 0:0:1 and Physical Disc 0:0:2

Physical DIsc 0:0:0 and Physical Disc 0:0:2 there are only 3 item in the drop down menu under Task Column which are (Blink and Unblink) and for Physical Disc 0:0:1 has an additional item which is Clear, I clicked on the clear item and the % Complete under the Progress Column never moves.

Can anyone please tell me what to do to have my drives back?  Though I was seeing only one drive since I started working on this server. Note it is a Refurbished Server
