HP ProLiant ML350 G4 Raid Array Setup Question?

Ok I have the Smart start cd in and to identical drives 73 gig SCSI Drive 0 and Drive 1. I boot up and am looking to setup the array but I never get anything on the screen remotely close to what I am looking for. On our DL320 and DL 360 you hit F8 and then you could setup your raid array. On this F8 takes you to this:

Select Configuration Options
1) Tape-Based On Button Disaster Recovery (OBDR)
2) Multi Initiator Configuration
3) Exit

One is not what I want Two gets you no where and well Three just Exits. So outside of that screen I get absolutely nothing that is remotely close to setting up my raid array. Any ideas before I kick this off my bench *Grin*

Re: HP ProLiant ML350 G4 Raid Array Setup Question?

You are hitting the wrong F8; this is for the Tape drive not the scsi drives:

Do you have Array controller installed on the server and is the drive cage cable connected to that controller;

Do you see Smart array controller 641 , or 642 or 6400 initializing at post or is it installed on a pci slot; that server dosenot come with Array controller.

Check to make sure you have RAID controller installed in the server; if so make sure that the drives are connected to that controller and not the SCSI controller.

You should not be getting scsi id for the hard drives at post.

Hey, look a light at the end of the tunnel.

Tarek Kawach,

Thanks for the update. Again I have over looked the obvious. I put a Raid Controler in there and bam I am up and running. I thought this was built in like the DL320 and DL360.
