Add new HDD SAS

Hi.

I have a DL 160 G5 Server with a 1 disk (146gb).

I bought a new HD but I do not recognize the system

I have tested the initial option and RAID not recognized.

I have to do to add?

Thanks

Re: Add new HDD SAS

It all depends on the storage controller in used. What kind of storage controller do you have on this server?

Hi,

you should go in BIOS(F10) -> Advanced ->
Configure SATA as -> choose RAID".

check page 14 :

Then when the server rebots you will have the F8 and will be able to create an array.

Thanks Taifur.

But I have a hdd with OS already installed.

I just wanted to recognize the disc ....... not create any RAID

Re: Add new HDD SAS

since you don't have RAID
it would be just inserting the HDD
and also
-> did you go to computer management -> Disk Management? and created a new partition???

Didn't your momma teach you to say thanks!

Re: Add new HDD SAS

Not recognized during boot up.
Nor in the BIOS or OS W2003.

I made the first question in this post for this

The disc is new. I do not understand what happens ...
