Problem with configure cache (Cache Status: Not Configured)

i have two near identical machines ProLiant DL360 G7 with P410i.

One works ok, second has major problems with performance. What they differ is cache, on first:

=> ctrl all show status          
Smart Array P410i in Slot 0 (Embedded)   Controller Status: OK   Cache Status: OK

On second:

=> ctrl all show status
Smart Array P410i in Slot 0 (Embedded)   Controller Status: OK   Cache Status: Not Configured

 

On second - show config detail show:

 

Cache Board Present: True

Cache Status: Not Configured

Accelerator Ratio: 100% Read / 0% Write   

Read Cache Size: 0 MB   

Write Cache Size: 0 MB   

Drive Write Cache: Disabled   

Total Cache Size: 144 MB   

No-Battery Write Cache: Disabled

 

I tried to find any way to "configure" cache - but it failed. I can enable drivewritecache, but - it doesn't "configure" cache.

 

Have you any suggestions what do with it?

hi,

 

Have you configured any logical volumes? You can also try to reseat the cache module and to update the FW of the controller.

You need an HP SmartCache license and you must Disable the HP SSD Smart Path.
