R900 disks failing

Hello Ee,

I have an R900 the disks are detected but "failed ".  Options in the perc are greyed out due to failure. Apparently these disks are refurbs, how can i attempt a format , is there a format util on board the R900?...Checked the normal routes including google .Do not think there is a server or desktop with sas around to try via windows util..

I found the issue to be the 6i PERC controller only supports up to 2 tb drives, I was using 3 tb drives

if the drive is failed then it's failed
you won't be able to format it or create any sort of raid container
