Formatting an array after configuration

I have a DL380 G3, turned on duplexing, setup 2 arrays - A1 contains 2, 36Gb HDs running RAID 0+1; A2 contains 3, 36Gb HDs running RAID 5. Installed Win2K Server on A1, however after setup, etc., A2 is not listed under My Computer.

Any suggestions on what to do? I don't see anything within ACU or ORCA that will let me initialize the array or format the drive (array).

Hello Gene,
Which array controller do you?? Secondly, did you update the firmware of the controller?? If not then let me know what do you have and I shall post the link for you.

Re: Formatting an array after configuration

It is a SmartArray 5i and I have not updated the firmware. Since the posting, I entered ORCA, deleted the array, let ORCA re-create the array. This seemed to work, until I realized that it was hung. Another reboot and then Win2K recognized a drive there. I then had to go into Disk Management and assign a signature to it prior to formatting. It all works now.

Thanks!!! :)
