Hard drive is not recognized by the server


  1. Check the hard drive LEDs to be sure they indicate normal function. For information on hard drive LEDs, see hard drive LED combinations. For server-specific hard drive LED information, see the server documentation or the HP website.
  2. Be sure no loose connections exist.
  3. Be sure the correct drive controller drivers are installed.
  4. Be sure the hard drive is configured properly:
    1. To determine the proper configuration, see the hard drive documentation.
    2. Remove the hard drive and be sure the configuration jumpers are set properly.
    3. For a non-hot-plug hard drive, be sure a conflict does not exist with another hard drive. Check for SCSI ID conflicts.
    4. When using an array controller, be sure the hard drive is configured in an array. Run ACU.
