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..

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

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