re : p800 smart array help

Hi Guys,
I have a RX6600 install with a smart array p800 sas controller, somehow or rather the internal hardisk is not hook up to the smart array, can anyone advice how can i connect the internal harddisk to the p800 controller and also how can I activate the sas array utility for the p800 smart controller to configure the raid for the harddisk. The operating system is 11.31 version 3 VSE. Please advice???

Regards
Vincent

Re: re : p800 smart array help

The P400 is supported.

Just put it into the desired slot and connect the cables and configure it using ORCA; instructiosn are available at http://docs.hp.com -> I/O cards
or -> server hardware -> rx6600

Hope this helps!

Torsten.
