Re: Cant add new hard drive 2 array

Are you sure the server is a 320e Gen8? Quickspecs show the 320e has the B120i embedded controller. 

 

To add additional drives to an existing array requires the controller to have a cache module installed

 

 

If this is a DL360e Gen8, you need this optional cache module

 

HP 512MB B-series 36 inch Dynamic Smart Array Flash Backed Write Cache for ML/DL 631922-B21

NOTE: This kit includes a cable and cache module that is used in conjunction with the B320i and B120i controller.

Re: Cant add new hard drive 2 array

Yes, i sure! My server is 320e G6... in basic.

My diler add more devices, controller, cache, SAS disk drives.

 

If i delete arrays and reconfigure it, all is right.

My question: may i reconfigure array(logical disk) online?
