Re: P840ar Controller in MIXED mode - RAID & HBA

I wanted to know how you got this to work. I have an ProLiant DL360 Gen 10 wit the P408i-a controller I have 6 drives all 300GB. I am trying to do a RAID 1 (mirror) the OS and then RAID 1+0 for the other 4 drives, howver when ever I go to create the array I get this message "These drives will become unavailable to the OS " I have never seen this before, and one thing I notice different is I see the port settings set to 'MIXED MODE", but don't know of a way to change this. Can you provide me some assistance so I can get this server settup? Thank you.

Re: P840ar Controller in MIXED mode - RAID & HBA

non RAID drives are presented to the OS.
If you create a RAID now, the RAID is presented, the physical drives no longer.

this is mixed mode ...

Hope this helps!

How does one disable mixed mode on GEN10?  We want to prevent sending drives to remote sites and it being made available in Windows without someone realizing that the RAID was not setup on it yet and using it prematurely.

Thanks
