DL 360 G5 RAID Disc Drive addition question

WE have a DL 360 with four disc drive bays, and have had discs in the first two bays (mirrowing). We would like to use the additional two bays to establish another logical drive. However when we installed the two additional disc drives they did not seem to be recognized by the system. How do we get the server to reflect an additonal drive for us?

Hello Robert,

When you connect the harddisk does the Amber LED on the hdd glow, if yes that means you have connected them properly. Now you need to start Array Configuration Utility to create and Array and a Logical drive, only then will your OS will be able to recognise the new hdds.

Hi!

FYI: ACU can be started from the smartstart CD.
You could also press F8 during boot and create an array in that array config utility.
