MSA30 Not recognizing Drive

We have a Proliant DL380 G4 with a MSA30 with 6 x 300 gig drives loaded and running properly. I would like to add another logical drive to run side by side with the current partition. I put a new drive in, it lights up for a minute and completely goes blank. The HP array config utility doesn't even show the drive present. Am i missing something here or is there a problem. Any suggestions are appreciated. Thanks

Hi Mike,

How have you positioned all the disks in your MSA30 ?

Are the original 6 HDD's running sequential from the left ? Was the 7th HDD added to the next free slot ?

Drive lights don't turn on until it is part of a LUN.

Is your MSA30 Dual bus or Single Bus.

If you reboot, can you configure via the ORCA. ORCA is the online configuration utility right after POST.

I'll try this over the weekend, and see what happens. Thanks for the input!
