I have a nice Lenovo Rack Mounting server, that would be a great machine to use in my office for testing serve apps out. I have 5 - 500 GB Hard drives. The first two are mirrored Raid 1 and working fine. The last 3 I was going to setup in a Raid 5 or 10. The problem is I cannot find a way for the hardware to recognize these 3 additional hard drives.
I have a software program AVago MegaRaid Storage Manager 16.02 that sees the drives are there but show as Foreign Unconfigured. Good.
Is there any software out there that will let me gain access to these drives, so I can configure them in a Raid configuration? I googled and searched, but nothing seems to be working. The Controller is LSI-01141 (B), Lenovo FRU 43W4297, MR SAS 8708E, L3-01141-02D
Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated

For future issues on this Machine Type, please open a thread on the ThinkServer Rack Mounted section of this forum. You might find some questions already answered and also can find support for this type of server.
To answer your issue, found that FRU# 43W4297 is MR10i controller from LSI, which is an older controller, but still can be managed either by storcli or MegaRaid Storage Manager. In principle it is the same application which you are using, but this is Lenovo signed and optimized for this products.
