Thanks for your reply. Thanks a lot, Mr. In order to resolve your situation, you should understand that the server has an onboard Smart Array 6i RAID controller embedded on the motherboard. I’ve built many of these systems Right now, the RAID controller sees that it has raw disks, but no volumes have been created, so there is nothing to present to the OS or installer, rather ; you just need to initialize a volume.

I’ll try to follow these steps and check the status and let you know of the outcome. You probably just have an Adaptec controller in the PCI slot with the drive backplane cabled to it. Right now, the RAID controller sees that it has raw disks, but no volumes have been created, so there is nothing to present to the OS or installer, rather ; you just need to initialize a volume.
HP controllers never present RAW disks.

The jumper cable 2 is key. There are several cabling options in this system; simplex, duplex and controllet few bypass arrangements that enable the use of higher-end RAID controllers.

You want your backplane-to-motherboard connection to look like this assuming you wish to see all six drive bays on the motherboard controller.
Thanks a lot for the response and the detailed explanation. Also, while inserting the SmartStart CD 7. In order to resolve your situation, you should understand that the server has an onboard Smart Array 6i RAID controller embedded on the motherboard.
Thanks a lot, Mr. You mean, software RAID? The SCSI controller traditionally only worked if there wasn’t anything connected to the pin SCSI connector on the edge of the motherboard see 1 below.
I changed it according to the diagram you gave and Voila!

Could anyone please advise as to what other needs to be done to format my server? This assumes you don’t have any PCI-X cards in the riser cage. I’m thinking it’s a card, but you have a couple of options to get this working.
Change the configuration to what’s described in the diagram above, and you’ll be able to use the onboard HP controller. Email Required, but never shown.
As you guessed, there was just an Adaptec controller in the PCI slot with the drive backplane cabled to it. For one, it doesn’t seem to be detecting any Hard Drives attached to the Server.
