B110i and Seagate Barracuda ES.2

Dear HP,


I have a problem with all of my Seagate Barracuda's (ST3750330NS), the disks work fine when the sata controller is on AHCI. But when i change this to the onboard B110i all the drive leds trun red, i have checked all the disks and they are fine.

I'am not able to find a firmware/software upgrade for the controller, the server is a DL160 G6 (Running WS12r2)


Is there a solution to use the seagate drives in a RAID 10 configuration?


Thanks in advance.


Re: B110i and Seagate Barracuda ES.2



HP Smart Array controllers can work better with HP Hard Drives, its because HP Drives have HP Firmware which works better with HP Controllers.


Non-HP Drives may not work with HP Smart Array controllers.


Thank You!
