Thanks. I've tried building it with both a 2.5" chassis and a 3.5" chassis and haven't had any luck either way. What slots do you have the SAS drives/SSDs in?

Thank You

Hi Jefferson,

We've got a pair of R710s with 6 x 146GB 15,000 RPM SAS drives and two 50GB

Didn't have any issues generating an eQuote for this online with a PERC 6/i
and raid option C20 MSSX R1/R5 (which we blatted anyway). We're running
them in a 8 x 2.5" chassis - perhaps this is your issue?
