Smart Array 641: Attaching drives to controller


Hi all

A question from a newbie: I cannot figure out how to attach my 2 SCSI drives to the controller.

I have entered the ROM-based setup utility and the boot controller order is OK. But at startup it says there are no physical drives attached to the controller.

It is probably a really simple thing, but I am totally stuck, and I cant "see the forrest because of all the trees" as we say in Danish. I am very frustrated and hope someone can help me. Thanks in advance.

Never mind, someone told me: I had not attached the SCSI cable from the hard-disk bays to the array controller (it was still attached to the motherboard).

Basically I think the instruction manual was flawed, in that it didn't mention it. I cannot be the first person to have encountered this.

Question is hereby closed.
