DL320 G3 SATA Array

Is this a true statement; Not all dl320 G3 with sata controllers are raid enabled? I have a new dl320 with two sata drives can't seem to find anything about creating an array. I tried to use an Adaptec 2020sa card and recieve kernal panics on the card when it initializes. Anyone have any Ideas or direction you could give me.

Thanks,
Mike

Mike:

The HP Product Bulletin for the DL320 G3 states: "NOTE: Purchase of floppy drive is required to implement embedded SATA RAID 0/1 with SmartStart 7.2."

I assume when you add your own controller that all bets are off.

Make a great day!

I understand that I need a floppy to use the onboard Sata array I just not know if my server has one (sata raid controller)
