Re: proliant 8500 drive array config

just got the smart start 5.5 cd working.

but it stop saying "no drive detected" ...

for info: when i insert the drives in the slots, they lights up for half a second then all lights goes down ... (same for the 4 drives)

Re: proliant 8500 drive array config

after trying everything, I found the answer:

bad connection of the small scsi connector (that you can found on the floor of the pci area) just removed it and reinserted ... everything's nice now ...

hope it will help someone else
