DL320 Will not recognize drives

I have 5 new DL320 servers that will not recognize the hard drives with the smartstart installation. 146gb drives, 2 per server.
part number 375872-B21. Am I missing a cable or something? I did not think I needed a raid card for two drives.
Thanks

Hi Chuck,

Welcome to the ITRC forums.

According to the QuickSpecs which you can find here:

http://h18004.www1.hp.com/products/quickspecs/12572_na/12572_na.html

"Serial Attached SCSI - SAS Hard Drives are only supported with optional SAS HBA or RAID cards."

So yes you will need a SAS controller and the cable kit. Part numbers can also be found in the QuickSpecs.

Hope this helps,

Regards,

Rob

Hi Chuck,

The attached DL320 G5 options list should help.

Hi Chuck,

As a minimum it looks like you'd want something like:

411508-B21 Smart Array E200 Controller
398307-B21 HP SATA/SAS 1U Cable Kit

You might want to investigate the other SAS controllers as well...

Hope this helps,

Regards,

Rob
