ML310e Gen8 v2 only shows two Drives out of four (B120i).

Hi,

 

Straight out of the box ML310e v2 showed only two harddrives attached when im using four. Bays three and four work just fine. Bay one and two nothing. I switched the drives, checked the cabling multiple time. Also used intelligent provisionin to update everything it found. I also changed to ACHI mode but it is still showing only bays 3 and 4.

 

Im using 4x identical 2Tb Samsung SATA drives.

 

Any ideas?

Hi,

 

If Bay 1 and 2 are not showing up even if you change the drives, then it could be that the drive backplane is faulty.

 

By the way, non-HP drives are not tested and may not work on HP Servers, thats because the drive firmware and array controller firmware do not match and hence they do not communicate with each other for proper operation.

 

 

Thank You!

And as this non hotplug version, "backplate" is just bunch of cables. As they are little on special side cant even test those other just buying new one.

 

and yes well aware of non hp drive issue. :)
