Hi All,

I just bought 3 used HP DL380 G3's, all have 6 x 36.4gb 10k hot swap scsi drives.

2 of the DL 380's are configured that all the drives are on Port 2 of the raid controller, but the 3rd DL 380 is configured so 4 drives are on port 2, and 2 drives on port 1.

The question is how can I put all the drives on port 2 as this appears to be the standard configuration.

RIght now everything is blank so data is not an issue.

Many Thanks,

Neil

Remove the middle terminator and disconnect the second short SCSI cable from the motherboard and plug it in where the terminator was. See figures 3 and 4 in the following document.

That was it!  Thank you so much.

With used units you can never be sure what has been done before, so putting them back to standard can be a pain.
