Config Smart Array 5302 on ML 530 G2

At power-on test, after Smart Array initializating, it says "no drives detected".

But, the HP Ultra BIOS can find 3 SCSI hard drives.

Smartstart utility shows no physical drives attached with the Smart Array.

What could the problem be?

Thanks.

Hello,

the hard disk cage must be attached to the Smart Array Controller. At the moment it's still attached to the onboard SCSI controller. You have to open up the server and move the SCSI cable.
See this thread for more info:

When you've done that, make sure the Smart Array controller is set as the Boot Controller (go to F9 setup)

Regards,
Stephen
