    Intel® Server System R1304GZ4GC and Intel Integrated RAID Module RMS25CB080

      hi there,

       

      new user here

       

      I have recently purchased a R1304GZ4GC 1u server with the integrated raid controller.  Unfortunately im after something that can support JBOD disks so i can manage the disk with software.  I know im loosing out on performance but im comfortable with software raid systems.

      I updated all the Bios Firmware for the system with success when i first got it.  Im going to use the onboard sas controllers

      I would like to remove the module and battery backup unit but when i removed the module the system would ramp up the fans to 100% on the one side.  The server BMC web health status shows a BMC error.

       

      BMC FW Health
      Management Subsystem Health
      '' sensor has failed and may not be providing a valid reading - Asserted
      
      
      
      

       

      So its complaining about the temp sensor on the module missing as i have physically removed it.  Should this actually throw a error in the first place?  If so how do i get the server to not look for it, is there a BMC reset/refresh/rescan option im missing in the bios.

       

      If someone could point me in the right direction to overcome this error i would be grateful, i have replaced the raid module and things are back to normal.  But i would like it removed and sold on so its at least put to good use somewhere.

       

      Thanks
