Compaq StorageWorks 4324R Dual Ultra3 14 Drive Cage

Hi I just purchased 2 147 GB scsi hard drives and I placed them in 2 9.1GB trays. When I add them to this array they flash red and are not being picked up by the system.

It should be noted that these are not compaq drives. They are

Interface:SCSI 80 Pin
Model MXJ3147SC800600X

I have 2 other drives from this brand, one 36GB and one 76, they seem to work fine. I tried this on another server Compaq Prolient DL380 and the same thing happens, the system is not picking it up.

Any assistance in this matter would be greatly appreciated as they are still under warranty.

What array controller is the 4324R shelf connected to ? It will probably be this that is not recognising the drives rather than the shelf.

When you say the drives are "not being picked up" what exactly do you mean ? Where are you looking...?
