additional Array on a ML350 G5 with E200i

have problems to set up an additional array.

 

I have an ProLiant ML350 G5 with a Smart Array E200i.

Two array (A and B) are present. Both fitted with Raid 1.

two disk 70GB for array A and two disk 300GB for array B.

 

Now I want to configure two existing disk 450GB to an additional array C, also Raid1.

I could make the configuration in the online- “array config utility” but when I reboot the server

he gets array error message an cant start. Then I have taken out the two disc so that it starts again.

Why cant I make a additional array?

Re: additional Array on a ML350 G5 with E200i

Several disk models may have a problem with the firmware when used with a E200.

 

What disk model and firmware do you have?


Hope this helps!

AFAIR firmware should be HPD9

http://h20566.www2.hp.com/portal/site/hpsc/template.PAGE/public/psi/swdHome/?sp4ts.oid=5174865&spf_p.tpst=swdMain&spf_p.prp_swdMain=wsrp-navigationalState%3DswEnvOID%253D4064%257CswLang%253D%257Caction%253DlistDriver&javax.portlet.begCacheTok=com.vignette.cachetoken&javax.portlet.endCacheTok=com.vignette.cachetoken


Check if the version is printed on the disk label.

Hope this helps!
