HP ProLiant DL160 G6 L5630 cannot detect SAS drive

Hi,

 

We just bought HP ProLiant DL160 G6 L5630 1P 4GB-R,came bundled with 300G SAS HDD drives (Promo sales).

 

when the time boot up, these drive are not detected by the system.

 

The option in the Bios only, SATA, RAID, AHCI, compatible. We tried all but still cannot detect the drive.

 

Is there any setting that we missed? 

 

Thanks,

Andy

As far as I can see, this model does not come with a SAS controller (like P410 bundled with many of them), and unfortunately, you need a SAS controller to see SAS drives.

 

Order a P410 or a similar controller, or use SATA (not SAS) drives.

 

HTH.

Hi Alex,

 

Thanks. It is the wrong bundle delivered then. We tested with SATA drives then it is OK.

 

thanks for the info.

Andy,

 

Just curious: did you mark your own response as a solution on purpose - or was it oversight?
