ML 310 WILL NOT RECOGNISE EXTRA DRIVE

I have a client with an ML 310 G3 server with two 160GB sata drives in a RAID 1 ARRAY. Because drive space became an issue, we decided to add a new 750GB drive to the server. However the new drive is not being recognised. After the drive is inserted into the Hotswap caddy the drive light is red and then after a short time it flashes green , but then goes off. I have run testS on the drive and it checks out OK.

You need to provide details on what parts you are using:

- SATA controller (the integrated on the motherboard?
- 750 GB hard disk (is it HP? Part number?)

Re: ML 310 WILL NOT RECOGNISE EXTRA DRIVE

The SATA contoller is the one integrated on the motherboard and the new 750gb drive is a HP drive, part number 458930-b21. ThE whole box is standard as it came from HP.
