All Drives Not Showing in Console RRS feed

  • Question

  • Contacted HP Tech Support about not all drives being detected. They had me ensure all the added drives ran on another system and run a restore on the server -- drives were fine and no dice on fixing the issue, so they're sending a new chassis. Meanwhile, I fiddled with swapping the drives around and removing them in the console -- low and behold I got all the hard drive bay-lights to light up (on the server unit MediaSmart EX470) -- which I interpret as the server detecting the 3 additional drives. The problem now is the server storage tab (in the console) only shows 2 non storage hard drives (to be added), and not 3. The mediasmart server tab confirms that there are 3 drives to be added to the server's storage (it shows 3 purple bay-lights on the page) -- I may be reaching on that conclusion. What do you think the issue could be?
