Sun ultra 45 server cant see HD

Sun ultra 45 server cant see HD

(OP)
I have a system that when I put in a HD and try to format , the system does not see the HD. tried swapping HDs with pre-loaded OS but still no joy. any idea's what could cause this issue. Everything else looks normal, boot to cd works, host information , ram, ? anybody had this issue?

RE: Sun ultra 45 server cant see HD

I've seen that with bad drives. Are you sure the HD is good?

RE: Sun ultra 45 server cant see HD

Have seen this before.. These units either support SAS or SATA and you have to make sure you have the correct cabling. You can not mix SAS and SATA in these units. So most likely your cabling is wrong for the model drive you have.. Yes I agree totally stupid design.. I ran into this myself.

RE: Sun ultra 45 server cant see HD

Apologize I was thinking of the ultra 40..

However on ultra45 you still can not mix sas and sata drives, they must be 1 or the other.

So boot cdrom -s does not see them in format?

Is it possible that this drive was hardware raided?

Do you see the drive with probe-scsi-all from ok prompt?

when booted from cdrom did you run command below to chekc if hardware raided?

raidctl
