Dell SAS 6i to H700 upgrade problem
Posted on 2014-10-13
Hi, I have 3 Dell R610. They all had SAS 6i cards in them which I upgraded to H700 RAID cards. Each had no OS.
Using to 300GB SAS 10K drives, I was able to create a RAID 1.
I was able to load Server 2012R2 without a hitch. Installed Dell Open Manage, no errors or anything on the RAID CARD. However, in the log it does say:
"The storage SAS A cable is not connected or improperly connected."
I've upgraded each box's firmware/driver from BIOS, BMC, RAID, everything, using the latest SUU.
No matter what I do, I can't get an error to disappear that shows up on the front LED:
"E1a14 sas cable failure check connection"
Also when the server boots up, the same error comes up about the SAS cable being disconnected.
The server works fine but I want the error message to go away!
