HP Disk System 2405

I have an HP Disk System on an Windows Server 2003 connetced via LSI Logic FC Controller. Now I have put in 5 HDDs (300 GB SATA). When I initialize the HDDs in the HDD management of the operating system, the HDD Order is kind of random. Perhapes the HDD in Slot 3 is HDD1 in the OS HDD management. Is it possible to configure the Disk System that the HDD in slot 1 is HDD1, slot 2 = HDD2, slot3 = HDD3, etc.

Thanks for help and sorry for my bad english
Regards

The DS2405 is a Fibre Channel disk drive enclosure (JBOD, in HP speak):

How did you put in any SATA disk drives?

Now, assuming that you're realling dealing with FC_AL:
you need to make sure that a disk drive is always mapped to the same target SCSI address in the Windows address space. I doubt that the enclosure can do anything and it's highly unlikely that you can find a tool that enables hard addressing on the disk drives.

See if you can do 'persistent binding' in the device driver for the 'LSI Logic FC Controller' (a Fibre Channel adapter or what is this?).

Sorry my mistake. There are FC HDDs! How can I map them?
The LSI Logic 7202XP is a Fibre Channel Host Bus Adapter.
