P212 - SAS drive issues

Hi all,

1st Time on the forum.

I have a ML110 G6, I have just added a P212 card with 256mb Cache to the system and updated the P212 to the latest firmware.

As this model does not have a drive cage, I ordered a Mini SAS to 4 SAS lead and connected to my 3 x 3tb SAS drives.

When I power on, it shows no physical drives attached.

I have tried connecting the same leads to SATA and no issues.

I have installed ACU within windows and it also shows Code 347 - No configurable physical drives.

Am I missing something here?

I know the P212 can support single drives in RAID 0 above 2TB with the latest firmware (or so I've bene told).

Not sure what to try next, any help would be greatly appreciated.

Many thanks

Hi, thanks for the reply.

It turns out the drives I have purchased are formatted in 520byte and not 512.

I will return the drives as I have no way to change this using my raid card.

Many thanks
