How can I configure my Compaq Drive Array under Windows 2000 ?

Hi,

I own a Compaq Disk Drive Array which is drievn by a Compaq SMART Array Controller (6 disks with a capacity of 4.3 GB).

I would like to use it under Windows 2000 Pro (or if it is absolury necessary, I could use it with Windows 2000 Server).

My card is already recognized by Windows 2000 Pro. To configure my Array, I downloaded the following softs :

- Compaq Array Configuration Utility
- Compaq Array Diagnostics Utility

When I try to create a volume with the Compaq Array Configuration Utility it works good, but it doesn't recognize the SCSI port used on my Compaq Controller. When I reboot, the card's BIOS recognizes a logical drive, but I can't access to it with the Disk Manager under Windows 2000. I tried to create two logical drives, they are recognized too by my card but I can't access them with the Disk Manager. Could someone help me to find out why I can't access to my array with the Win2k Disk Manager ????

Thanks

Best regards,

Joel

It may have to do with the firmware on the controller download the options rompaq for the controller and update it and see if this helps with your issue
