Problems adding 2nd disk


Hello,

I'm having a problem with my HP Proliant ML150 G3 Server.

I added a new SATA (Hot-plug) 160GB disk that's equal to the one that was already installed and running Windows Server 2003.

The problem is that HP Smart Array E200i is only finding 1 logical disk at the begining.

Note:when I insert the disk in the bay, the disk turns its light on so I guess is not a hardware problem.

Any help please?

Regards,

Hello Duarte,
Welcome to the Forums.

Check the cabling. Also try a power cycle on the server.

When you say "The problem is that HP Smart Array E200i is only finding 1 logical disk at the begining." ... Do you mean the POST screen when you see the controller initialized & the disk information ?

Or do you mean the ACU ?

Re: Problems adding 2nd disk

Hello James,


Thank you for your answer... but the problem still remains.

I tried to insert the disk in different bays but stills the same.
The (green)disk led turns on when I plug it so I guess is not a cabling problem...


In the POST section, it isn't found more than the logical disk drive.

So when I go to ACU there "Disk Utility menu, it says: there are no SATA drives found (at the POST)"

Thanks.

Regards,

Duarte
