Re: ML150G6 2nd Drive Cage

What options did you buy with the server? hot plug or non hot plug disks? SAS or SATA? Which storage controller? embedded sata, P212, p410?

You may want to check the internal wiring between the storage controller and the drive cages.

You have to check the internal wiring. It is possible that the P410 is not connected to the second cage, or the cable is not firmly attached.

The P410 has two connectors for the data drives (4 ports for each connector) so there should be two data cables going out form the P410 and each cable connects to each of the two drive cages.
