I am trying to connect a PowerEdge R805 with a Perc6/E add in board to a
Infortrend A24S-R2130 SAS array.
The link lights on the Perc6/E on the rear come on as well as on the
Rear of the Infortrend unit.
I have created a LUN on the Infortrend A24S which is exported via
channel0 on the rear which is connected to channel0 on the Perc6/E.
When I enter the Ctrl-R menu on the Perc6/E I see no unconfigured disks.
When I got the PD Mgmt page in the Ctrl-R bios I see only the following
Drive ID Vendor Size Type State DG
--:--: 17 IFT 0 SAS Failed
On the right of this in the info box it correctly displays the Product
ID A24S-R2130, revision 361B, Write Cache N/A, Smart Status No error,
Can anyone explain what is going wrong here?
