MSL - 2024 Not Ready, Not Connected

Hey everybody,


I've been working with an MSL 2024 and I am running into an issue connecting it to a DL380 G7. The Tape Library is connected via a SAS cable (4 to 1) to the DL380 using a P212 Smart Array controller. Upon boot up the P212 shows no virtual drives attached nor does it say anything about potentially having a Tape drive or CD rom drive attached. On the SAS cable, I originally had it connected to SAS0 but I have also tried SAS1 ( I have yet to try SAS2 or SAS3). I've tried various reboot patterns and I have also upgraded to the lastest driver software for the P212 controller to no avail. Does anyone have any ideas? Could my controller be bad? How can I determine what component could be bad (P212, MSL 2024 drive, cable?).


Any and all ideas welcome. Thanks in advance.

Bad P212 Smart Array card. We replaced everything. This was the last piece.
