Have a Dell PE R710 and 6x 4TB Western Digital RE hard drives.
Right now I have no controller connected to the backplane, just the drives in the slots. When I power up the server, the drives don't show any power.
Does a controller need to be connected to the backplane for the drives to show power?
If it does, what controller should I use that will successfully drive the 4TB SATA Hot Plug Drives in a RAID 5 configuration.
