Re: msa G3 problem config

Have the 8 drives ever been used in anything else?
They might still have a config on them...

Do the drives show up as LEFTOVER in SMU or do you not see them at all?

Re: msa G3 problem config

Are the 8 drives supported in the MSA?

What are the part numbers?

Sounds like you might have a problem with the backplane on the last 8 slots then.

I'd raise a warranty case with HP...

Thanks,

Mark...

Hi,

 

As you have already checked by swapping the hadrdrive with others which are working fine and those drives lit up gree in last 8 slots also then its not the problem with drives. its with backplane.

 

Also what is the status if you put last 8 amber drives in first 16 slots? Does they still remain amber or gree?
