I have a Dell PowerEdge 2900 with PERC 5/i Integrated controller. Currently the system has three SAS 300 GB disks in a Raid 5. I am trying to add two - to - four - 1 TB Western Digital SATA drives to create an new virtual disk either raid 1, 5 , or 10. I added the SATA disks to the server, but cannot see them in OpenManage. They are NOT Dell certified. I had "extra" disks, brand new, that were used as spares for another server.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
