How to install HD SATA in Proliant ML350



I would like to know how install a new sata hd on my server proliant ml350.


I have free bays on the the front of server, and I plugged 2 news sata hard disks( they start runing normally), but I can't configurate them because when windows server r8 start I don't see the drives.

Probably I'm doing something wrong. Please somebody help me.


Thanks in advance.


P.S. I added the photo of the serve

do you have an array/RAID controller?
With that you first need to add the new drives to an array and in the array create a logical drive. You can also expand arrays/logical drives..

If you have ACU (array configuration utility) installed on your server, you can configure the drives/array/LD though that.
Or, you can do it via the ORCA in POST, or by booting the machine on the smartstart CD and load ACU from there.
