x3650 M5 HDD expansion backplane issue MEGARaid Storage

2020-03-18, 4:28 AM

 

Hi everyone,

 

I installed a new SAS expander with 2 new HDD and managed to expand existing RAID5 without no issue.

 

However, when looking at MEGARaid Storage Manager(13.11.01.06) dashboard, the backplane status is 0 whereby before project execution the status was 1.

 

I'm expecting it to display 2 backplanes in the information since the expansion was a success.

 

Is there other method to verify the SAS expander is working accordingly?

Dear Sir,

You can access IMM2 Web GUI and click on 'Local Storage" under hardware health.  You should be able see Your raid adapter, drives and storage raid configuration, including your storage pool and Volume.

Here are the examples in IMM2 Web GUI.

Hi,

 

Thank you for suggesting that. However, I cannot access the IMM at the moment via the default IP address(192.168.70.125).

 

I will tackle the issue first and use your method next.

Dear sir,

Please go to uEFI setup menu during system reboot by pressing F1. And go to IMM network settings and set up IMM IP address.

Hi, that's in my action plan. Need to schedule downtime for that. Thank you so much!
