ML350 G3 w/ SmartStart 7.6

I have a SmartArray 641 with two arrays on it (A&B). The server boots to A, but I need it to boot to B. I have used the SmartStart 7.6 disk, the F8 option, the RBSU, and ORCA and can't seem to find where to change the boot order from A to B. Anyone know where to find this?

Eric,
I am not 100 % sure, but AFAIK:
when you have 2 Arrays on SmartArray controller - you CANNOT choose which Array boot from, SmartArray will alway try to boot from Array A

Re: ML350 G3 w/ SmartStart 7.6

There is no means of changing which drive (or array) it will boot to. It will actually boot off of logical drive 1, but this is usually array A also.

The only way I'm aware of for getting it to boot from array B is to remove array A. Once you do that it will automatically change B to A, then boot off it.
The truth is out there, but I forgot the URL..
