I need to connect my MSA20 to an adaptec SCSI card, I installed the softwares on MY Server2003,
but the MSA is deteced as "HP U320/SATA BULK 1 SCSI Array Device" , but in device manager it is not installed, since it did not find a driver. One year ago I could connect another MSA 20, without any problem. at the msa enclosure the label is :
-Part Number: A7566A

-P/N: A7566-63001

-Serial Number: USE072700Z

-Regulatory Model: HSTNM-S001

 

I searched hp, but could not find. In the ADU report the enclosure is detected as:
MSA20 in E02UMLJ1CG
please i need to connect it to my server.

I don't think you'll be able to connect it to an Adaptec SCSI card, it has to be connected to a Smart array 642 or 6402. The adaptec may be able to see the control LUN but the actual logical disk LUNs use high numbers that most SCSI controllers can't cope with. I'm very surprised that you managed to use one on an Adaptec a year ago.

In Fact I connected two different MSA's . But the drives were SCSI and they are identified easily, but with sata drives it produces a device driver problem

In that case they were MSA30s, big difference between that and a MSA20. The MSA20 has an internal RAID controller, the MSA30 is a dumb SCSI shelf.
