Hp Smart Array P600 Controller cannot start error code 10
Posted on 2012-03-27
I have an hp dl380 g4 with the p600 controller on one of the pci e slots. The purpose of us installing this controller is to connect an external Hp Storage LTO backup tape drive via SAS instead of using the scsi.
I downloaded and installed the drivers. After downloading and installing the drivers for the controller, devmgmt shows an exclamation mark and device cannot start error code 10 message in the properties. I tried to reinstall, move to different bus...most of the 101's.
event viewer shows even id 11: the driver detected a controller error on \device\raidport1.
event id 11 the driver detected a controller error on.
Also during server start up the scsi raid controller initializes but the p600 conroller stays initializing untill it finally fails.
Is there a specific set of instructions I should be following to install this SAS adatper for my external LTO tape drive?
Please help soonest
Thanks and regards
