The second Operating System drive failed:<br>
- Enclosure ID:252<br>
- Slot:1<br>
- Model: `INTEL SSDSC2CW240A3`

This drive is on its own backplane, and is handled by the RAID controller as a RAID1 (mirror) of only two drives.

Because that Intel model is no longer available, we replaced it with a:
`Intel SSDSC2KB240G801`. It is the same size and form factor, with very similar specs (all the critical specs are - I believe - the same).

However, the drive is not seen. In fact, `storcli` does not even show a drive slot there anymore.

I inherited this controller and it is long out of support.

**Any idea what's wrong? Is the new drive simply incompatible?**
