Re: HDD showing Amber 2 slot and 3 rd only.

Hi Kishore,

Most of the times on a DL380 G4 server the backplane would not be seated properly.

Is the backplane in simplex or duplex mode?

Duplex supports two hard drives on one channel - SCSI ID's 1 and 0 and always populate hard drive bays starting with the lowest SCSI ID.
