DL380 & 5302 controller


We just got a new DL380 (1GHz 133FSB) with a 5302 Array Controller. When trying to run the array config tool through Smartstart (both with 4.90 and 5.0) when "detecting array's" the system just locks up.

We took out the controller and used just the built in controller without any problems. We put the 5302 into a ML530 that we had and that worked fine. Finally, we tried an old 2DH in the DL380 and it saw all six drives on the system.

I updated the firmware on thye 5302 without encountering any differences.

Are there any known compatibility issues with this config that anybody knows about ?

Thanks for any advice that you can give me.

Well I have seen this issue multiple times. It is random. I had two machines on the bench at one time and one did it and the other didn't. I just took out the on-board chip on the right hand side. That will get you up and running.
