SmartArray 431 and IBM 18.2GB

Hi all,

I am trying to connect an IBM 18.2GB(Model 09L4056) Ultra Wide LVD drive to a SmartArray 431 Controller via the Hot Plug cage in a Proliant 1600. The Array Controller will not recognize the drive and errors out and will not even let me boot with the existing Array when the IBM is installed.

I am however able to connect the drive to the onboard SCSI and FDISK/FORMAT the IBM without a problem. I have also upgraded the firmware on the SmartArray with the latest rev.

Any ideas as to how to get the drive working with the SmartArray?

I think it will not work with a non-compaq Hard Disk.
