Problem with MSA500 G2 array

Hi,

I Have a problem with HP MSA500 G2 array which is connected to a Intel Server with Compaq 5300 smart array controller.

All the commands I try to give to the array result with the same error:

Error: Could not clear configuration. Please check your configuration for
possible hardware or configuration problems. Use the "show" command on
devices to show additional details about the configuration.

What can be wrong?

here are the infos from 'show', 'show config' and 'version' commands.

Operating system is Debian.

Re: Problem with MSA500 G2 array

The error on the message was from 'clear' command, here are errors from few other commands:

=> create type=ld drives=1:1,1:2,1:3,1:4,1:5,1:6,1:7,1:8 raid=1+0

Error: This operation is not supported with the current configuration. Use the
"show" command on devices to show additional details about the
configuration.

=> modify chassisname="Test"
