dont worry intel support desk sorted me out , thanks william
...and the answer was???? How does your response help anyone else that is having the same issue? It would be extremely helpful to include what specific steps needed to be done to enable RAID 10 on the RS2BL040 controller! Can anyone provide a clear answer to this question?
I am very familiar with RAID levels, and have worked with other brand RAID controllers, but I am not having any luck being able to set up RAID 10 with this controller, even though it supposedly can handle it.
Single RS2BL040 controller
SC5000PSL motherboard and 5U chassis
Hot Swap Chassis: (1) 4-Bay; (1) 6-Bay
6-Drive currently set up with RAID 10 (w/o spares)
I am replacing the (4) 1TB drives in the 4-Bay chassis with (4) 4TB drives. I deleted the previous virtual drive the 1TB drives were originally built with, which was in RAID 0 configuration, and removed the drives. I added the new 4TB drives, and their current status "Unconfigured Good". When I try to set up a virtual drive under Advanced, and add the 4 new, available drives, it will not allow me to create a Drive Group (which would otherwise allow me to proceed further and create the RAID 10 array).
Urgent! Please help!
