there are 6 hard drives that are hot swapable bay 0 is the main drive the drive in bay 1 fails every time doesn't matter what hard drive i have in it
and when i leave all the bays empty cept for 0 it still does the same thing (i do turn off system and then swap them so as not to cause any other problems)
when i get into the openmanage server assistant cd and try to load the os it tells me there are no installed harddrives
this prob did not start till i tried to reinstall the os when i first bought the server before that the os was already screwed up but not havin any probs with the hard drives now i dunno what i did but it is worse than before
i built my home comp from scratch but i am lost on this server linux scsi stuff
