Proliant Storage System U1

Just picked up a Proliant Storage System U1 with 4X18.2G drives. Is it normal system operation that the drives do not spin up when the unit is powered on, but not attached to a server?

I certainly hope so because my U1 behaves the same way... yet to find a cable.

The drives do not spin up until a signal is sent from a controller upon boot. So, yes this is normal operation.
