Smart Array 3200 controller

We 'received' from another site a Proliant 800 with a 3200 SCSI controller and 2 9.1 drives configured in mirroring, one on each channel with SCSI id's set to 0.

I then purchased four 18.2 drives that I added (two on each channel) with id's 1 and 2.

As a consequence I now have three drives on each channel of the controller with id's 0, 1 and 2.

The Drive Array Diagnostic reports all the drives, noting that only two are OK and four NOT USED.

When I try to start the Drive Array COnfiguration Utility from the system partition, it reports that there is no array controller in the system.

Basically I am stuck... help...

Re: Smart Array 3200 controller

I'd make sure you're using latest firmware updates for the ProLiant 800 and 3200 array controller (4.48) and then I'd probably put the (2) 9.1GB on one channel and the (4) 18.2GB drives on the remaining channel.
