DL380 G2 - Disks Running at Ultra 2 :-0


DL380 G2 - Disks Running at Ultra 2 :-0

Hi folks;

I have a DL380 G2 w/4 Compaq 18 gig drives (same firmware level) and 2 IBM 18 gig drives.

I'm getting this error in the event viewer and compaq diagnostics tells me the drives are all running at Ultra 2 speeds instead of Ultra 3;

SCSI bus fault occurred on Storage Box box 0, , Port 1 of
Array Controller [Embedded].
This may result in a "downshift" in transfer rate for one or more hard drives on the bus.

Why aren't they all running at Ultra 3 speeds? The IBM drives are Ultra 3 and so are the Compaq ones.

What speed would they run if you use either COMPAQ or IBM?
Firmware same level, but it's up to date for Compaq and IBM?
Array Controller firmware? Driver ?
