  • Cannot create new array with logical disk

    Hi,
    Having an annoying problem.
    at a client site i have a HP DL 380 G6 server
    On board is a P410i Controller already with latest firmware
    we have added t new 300 gb disk and normally you can create a new array with an
    logical disk in it and then use in windows.
    The problem here is that i have no option to create a new array.
    normally if you point the mouse in the ACU on the controller you should get this option.
    Somehow it is gone.
    i hope you guys can shine a light on it .
    There is already an array A and B i`ve checked the cache memory and this seems OK
    on request i could send a screenshot.

    thanks

    does the controller actually see the individual disks as individual disks ?

      I'm not familiar with this card but how many arrays does it support? Does it need an expansion to support more than you have?

        Hi Guys Thanks for the reply`s

        I can see actually the new disks unassigned.


        The p410 should support up to 64 Array`s

          Do they need to be initialized?

            I think i have the cause of this annoying problem
            I looked at the diagnostics report again and saw that write cache was not seen or not working. I`ve installed the server myself and according to my data i have build in a BBWC 512mb so i think that is faulty at the same time it explains some performing issues that users having.
            i go onsite tomorrow to see, they have a care pack from HP so i think the BBWC needs replacement.

            i will post back soon for an update

              Problem Solved:

              The BBWC was replaced by a brand new one
              And i could do my trick, created an array and the much needed
              logical Disk.

              Thanks Guys finally a day off tomorrow
