Help with Dell PERC RAID
Posted on 2010-08-31
I have a Dell PowerEdge 2850 that I want to setup as a failover server.
It has the Dell PERC 4e/Di BIOS stuff.
So when I press CTRL-M to go into the RAID BIOS, I get a menu that starts off with
If I go into Configure, then View, I can see that I have 6 drives, and all 6 are ONLIN. When I press F3 to see Logical Drives, I see
LD 0 is RAID 5 with 104040 MB
LD 1 is RAID 0 with 34680 MB
When I boot the server, all the BIOS messages go rolling by, and this one tweaks my interest:
2 Logical Drives Found
0 Physical Drives Found
2 Logical Drives Handles by BIOS
0 Physical Drives Handled by BIOS
Whatever I try to install (linux, Windows server), they all say the same thing "No hard drive found".
What am I doing wrong? Is there some sort of step-by-step I can follow to make this work?
