DL320 G5 - Unable to setup Mirroring

Just wondering if this is even possible on these 'servers'.

The ACU is not available with smart start, says no controller found.

When you boot into the BOIOS and try and manually setup the array, it tells you that no drives are found.

We were able to setup the 'server' normally (with 2 full drives showing up in Disk Managment so the drives are fine (just not mirrored).

Any ideas?

Re: DL320 G5 - Unable to setup Mirroring

This is an integrated SATA RAID right? At least that is what the SPEC says, but then the sales site says "Integrated Intel 82801GR Serial ATA Host Controller" and has the RAID controller as an option card, so could it be that the drives are connected to a simple SATA controller and NOT the RAID card?

Re: DL320 G5 - Unable to setup Mirroring

I'm having similar problems.

I have enabled SATA RAID in bios.

and I can configure mirroring with the "sata raid configuartion" -tool just after bios is finished.

and I see both my drives in there.. everything seems nice so to speak.

but when I install linux I get both a sda and sdb -drive.

So I don't know if it's mirroring to sdb without a filesystem or not..

I just have no clue atm :)
