Disk config/setup before OS install

I'm trying to install 11.31i on a new RX2800 i2 server.  After getting it to boot to install the OS from the dvd, it says 0 disks and OGB of disk is avaliable.  There are 2x 146 GB disks in the server so I assume there is some sort of disk setup steps that need to be done before I proceed with OS install.   I'm really strugling to find the documentation on how to do so.  Any pointers?

 

Thanks

Re: Disk config/setup before OS install

Boot the server and select "s" to start EFI shell.

Watch the console for a message like this:

Currently the controller is in HBA mode
HP Smart Array P411 Controller (version 5.06)
Tape Drive(s) Detected:


Do you see HBA or RAID mode?

If RAID mode, are logical drives shown?

Hope this helps!

Re: Disk config/setup before OS install

OK, you need to create a logical drive now.
Access ORCA using drvcfg.
(I will search for a link, I wrote it several times here, maybe you can try to search too).

Hope this helps!

Re: Disk config/setup before OS install

Wow, 15 minutes and I'm rocking and rolling vs 4 hours of unsuccessful searching yesterday and HP 404s on various PDF docs.

 

Thanks Torsten!
