We have connected the msa200 enclosure on the SAS expansion in port (left port) with the sas cable to the first sas port of the e500 smart array controller. Server and e500 have the actually firmwares. the server boots from the integrated e200i and two sas discs (RAID1) which have the OS.
when we start the server the e500 tried to initiliaze the msa-discs but after a while it stops with 1785: array is not configured.
the acu didn´t see the discs.

is this configuration possible, if yes want can we do that it will be work.
