Re: ML370 G3 expansion slot 1 cannot boot smart array 641

Hi,

Please check the following details on your controller

Smart Array 641 Controller with Assembly #011818-001 (and NOT Assembly #5015652 on the cache module).
Smart Array 642 Controller with Assembly #011815-001 (and NOT Assembly #5015652 on the cache module).

If it there give it to hp and get it replaced.

Trust me :-)

Regards,
Prashant S.

Hi Kelvin,

might this have something to do with your problem?

http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/Document.jsp?locale=en_US&taskId=110&prodSeriesId=316541&prodTypeId=15351&objectID=PSD_EL040721_CW01

And is says five available because in the High-Performance and Array Models, one of the slots is occupied by a Smart Array controller, meaning only 5 slots are free.

Regards,
Stephen

What do you have in the other pci slots? Will the controller initialize in slot 1, but not boot to OS or is it not seen at all in this slot?
The truth is out there, but I forgot the URL..
