rx7640 not showing all 4 internal disks

Hi All,

im having the following issue with an rx7640 server in fact, i need to install 11iv3 on this newly acquired server however, at early boot stages the server is only showing/detecting 2 internal disks from 4 overall. Even at EFI shell it is only showing 2 disks. It s the case of a single partition with 2 cell boards. I already checked the components (ps commands etc ...) and nothing seems to be weird. Any hint please that can help me to start the hardware troubleshooting?

Post or attach a copy of the output:

# ioscan -fn


However, I suspect that you do not have a second SCSI board installed in the PCIe card cage.  To support the internal disk slots, there need to be LVD SCSI controllers installed (usually in PCI slot 8 for each - one in chassis 0 and the other in chassis 1).  These are then cabled through to the backplane.

forgot to update it long time ago

this issue was resolved by replacing the data cable having broken pins on one end
