2nd hard disk installation not detect

Hi All,
I bought a HP ProLiant DL360 G6 and installed Windows Server 2008. I have 2 SATA MDL Hard Drives with 500 GB capacity each. i put these to hard drives but the other is not detectable. Only the first drive can detect by the server. What should I do to make it working? Please Help.
Thanks in advance.

Re: 2nd hard disk installation not detect

The DL360 G6 has a raid controller, P410i, and most likely the two disks are configured as a raid1 array (mirrored pair) with one logical disk in it. So the windows OS will not see the two physical disks but instead it sees the single logical disk of the array.

No need to do anything in windows. Check with ACU to see the disk configuration and start reading on raid hardware on these servers.

Re: 2nd hard disk installation not detect

If the support pack is installed, you will find the ACU in start menu.

If not, install the PSP or run ACU offline from smartstart CD.

Hope this helps!

Torsten.

Re: 2nd hard disk installation not detect

Thanks for the reply.

I've installed the ACU. I am here now in the ACU wizards for Smart Array P410i in Embedded Slot. I can see now my 2 Hard Drives under SATA Array A - 1 Logical Drives.

I want to use the other drive as a normal drive so I can use this as my storage drive.

what will I do next?
