display problem of p212 card

Hi , I have a card is p212/256MB

I connect it both internal and external. but the display of list physical drives confused me .

I have 6 drive connected internal, and 1 drive connected external.

 

 

Smart Array P212 in Slot 1

Array A

physicaldrive 1I:1:9 (port 1I:box 1:bay 9, SATA HDD, 4 TB, OK)

Array B

physicaldrive 1I:1:11 (port 1I:box 1:bay 11, SATA HDD, 6 TB, OK)

Array C

physicaldrive 1I:1:8 (port 1I:box 1:bay 8, SATA HDD, 6 TB, OK)

Array D

physicaldrive 1I:1:10 (port 1I:box 1:bay 10, SATA HDD, 4 TB, OK)

Array E

physicaldrive 1I:1:13 (port 1I:box 1:bay 13, SATA HDD, 6 TB, OK)

Array F

physicaldrive 2E:1:1 (port 2E:box 1:bay 1, SATA HDD, 6 TB, OK)

Array G

physicaldrive 2E:1:9 (port 2E:box 1:bay 9, SATA HDD, 6 TB, OK)
physicaldrive 2E:1:9 (port 2E:box 1:bay 9, SATA HDD, 6 TB, OK)

 

look at array G, why it mark an internal drive as an external drive, and repeat once again.

Re: display problem of p212 card

Obviously this is external:

Array F

physicaldrive 2E:1:1 (port 2E:box 1:bay 1, SATA HDD, 6 TB, OK)

Array G

physicaldrive 2E:1:9 (port 2E:box 1:bay 9, SATA HDD, 6 TB, OK)
physicaldrive 2E:1:9 (port 2E:box 1:bay 9, SATA HDD, 6 TB, OK)

 

This means 5 internal, 2 external... ?

You can see the 2E connection, the external port.

What type of external chassis do you have and how is the cabling?

What server model?


Hope this helps!
Regards

Re: display problem of p212 card

it's why I said the display is error, but I don't know why.

as I mentioned there are 6 drives internal, and 1 drive conntected external.

the drive in array G should be an internal drive, which located 1I:1:1 (left/top first bay of the drive cage), however, it displays as an external drive.

the external classis is a jbod, connected by external sas cable.

the server is dl180g6.
