HP DL380 Gen10 Box 1 Drive Indicators Don't Light Up

Hey folks,

Still working on building out a couple of 12LFF DL380s for our data center and I've noticed that the top row of drive lights don't seem to function at all. They don't light when the drives are inserted, and don't light in use. All 12 disks use a Smartcache array, 1 SSD to 11 disks in a RAID 6 array. We've built two identical servers with no issues, and there are no errors indicated in boot or iLO or anywhere else, machine is otherwise behaving as normal.

I've reseated all the disks and pulled/replugged the connector from the p816i-a to the top box, to no avail. Is there anything else I can check? I didn't see anything obvious. Firmware is all up to the SPP 12.2019 spec.

Hello,

 

12LFF DL380, I am assuming they are Gen10 servers. The Drives will have no LEDs unless its part of RAID. As per your statement they are part of RAID6 (please correct)

You may also want to check the below advisory:
