SmartArray P222 & P420 - This physical drive does not support RAID and is not exposed to OS

I am getting an error when adding an HP drive to an HPE SmartArray (I have tried both the P222 and P420 controllers with the same error).

Error:
"This physical drive does not support RAID and is not exposed to OS. It cannot be used for configuration on this controller."

Drive:
2TB 7.2K SAS 2.5"
HP Model: SAVN2000S5xeF7.2
HP Part Number: 791435-002
Manufacturer Model: ST2000NX0353

Has anyone seen this error before? Thoughts? I have looked around and haven't found any information regarding the error and little information about the drive. From the Seagate documentation, I found the drive does support RAID.

Many thanks.

@hostbrewFrom the Seagate documentation, I found the drive does support RAID.

 

Hmm, not sure what a drive needs to support RAID, other than the controller must like it??

Hi!

Same problem with P441 controller and 2 x 10Tb SAS-III HGST. Does anyone knows how to fix it?
I attached a new D3600 Enclosure with two 10Tb SAS-III HGST (HUH721010AL4204) and get the same error.
