Windows 2000 not recognizing array C

I have installed a 5302 in a Proliant ML530 with 8 disks. (4x9Gb and 4x18Gb.)

The 5302 has been setup with array 'A' as RAID1 across 2 9Gb disks, array 'B' as RAID1 across 2 9Gb disks and array 'C' as RAID 0+1 across 4 18Gb disks.

Using Disk Manager in Windows 2000, arrays 'A' and 'B' can be partitioned and formatted and given drive letters, but array 'C' is detected as 'Unknown', has a red warning icon and can't be partioned.

Any ideas? Thanks.

Re: Windows 2000 not recognizing array C

What type of partitions are you creating? There's a limit to how many primary partitions you can make...

Try running the ADU from the Smartstart CD on the array, in case there's a hardware issue.
