Proliant DL380 G7 w/ P812 Controller

Hello,

 

We just purchased a brand new Proliant DL380 G7 server with the P812 Controller. We have 8 300GB SAS drives, 4 in Slot1 Bay 1-4 and 4 in Slot2 Bay 1-4. All of the status and health indicator LED's are working correctly in the Slot 1 Bays but none of them are working in Slot 2. I have the array using all 8 drives in a RAID5 Array and I am having no issues with the Array or server whatsoever, but none of the LED's are working.

 

I have verified that the current firmware is installed and current drivers are installed.

 

Anyone seen this before?

It could be something do with the backplane

That was what we thought, we tried replacing it with a working one, but no cigar, same problem.

Can you swap the controller, though the backplane has the leds, controller plays part in controlling the leds

In our case, the post is showing all four "dead" drives as failed (drives 5 - 8). We have tried to replace the disks, but with no luck. We have tried cross-swapping the sas cable to determine if its the SAS controller cable or channel, but it is still den hdds 5-8 that fails/dead/no LED.

If you've cross connected the SAS cables and the problem stays with drives 5-8 it sounds like something is wrong with the SAS backplane board
