Help Proliant DL380 E200i SmartArray Controller Fails To Initialise

Hello, i have a problem with my  DL380 G5, recently add a pair of SAS 300Gb hard disk, but i have problem, the server can´t boot its show me this warning

 

This is the error:

 

1783-Slot 3 Drive array controller failure.

 

I have too another hd 146gb SAS and its not problem with it, its boot fine windows server 2008, i need to change the SO to the other hard disk in raid 1 but server sometimes detect them and another times not.

 

Mi plan is manage raid 1+0 only if i can make work the 300gb hardisk.

 

I had to many problems to install OS its took about 4 hours to be installed, cause the error, i had to reboot to many times and system load, after if you need to turn off or reboot the server, the system can´t be load cause this error.

 

When i connect the original hard disc its work fine, and the error doesn´t appear.

 

This is the model of the hard disk.

 

507127-B21 HP 300GB 6G SAS 10K rpm 2.5-inch Dual Port Enterprise Hard Disk Drive

 

Thanks for your coments

-Update the E200 firmware to the latest version. 1.86

-If that doesn't work, update the hard disk firmware to the latest. (If you have another server at hand to do this)

Did you try to put them in different bays?
Try one that is connected to the other SAS cable if possible.
Did my post help? Thank me with kudo's! :)

greetings,

 

try the latest SPP, it is avilable on:

http://h17007.www1.hp.com/us/en/enterprise/servers/products/service_pack/spp/index.aspx

 

and run it offline, it will take care of all the server's firmware. use it offline, and you will see the updates running
