DL140 G3 LSI Utility

Hi there,
Just received 2 DL140's and unfortunately when I want to raid the new drives (2 x 80GB) SAS, I hit F8 to invoke the SAS configuration utility, ....it just hangs, therefore cannot get into the LSI MPT SAS BIOS utility to initialize the RAID. Can anyone help ?

Many Thanks &
Kindest Regards,
Yasir Mirza

Re: DL140 G3 LSI Utility

Hello
Try upgrading BIOS _AND_ BMC firmware to the latest version. The new BMC firmware changed option ROM initialization sequence for better option ROM space management. Maybe that will solve the problem.

Hi yasir,

As recomended above yes it will be helpfull. I would suggest you to clear the nvram for the system also before doing so would be a better option.

Many thanks to all those who replied. The LSI Configuration Utility started up fine, after updating the BIOS.
