DL380G4 + MSA30

DL380G4 + MSA30

Dear all,

I had a DL380G4 connected to an MSA30 with 4 disks. I added other 6 disks to the MSA30. After a reboot using the 6i configuration program I can see only 3 of the 6 new disks. Seems that I can use only the first half of the array. Is it possible that to use all the MSA30 boxes I have to buy another controller?

Thanks

Re: DL380G4 + MSA30

Probably you have MSA30 Dual Bus (two SCSI connectors on I/O module). To use all disks bays you have two choices:

1) replace the I/O module to Single Bus (with one SCSI connector)

2) Add Smart Array PCI card with dual channel external connectors
