MCS7816-I3 was shipping with one HDD and added 2nd with extra order.
I put the hardware detection DVD but got error message which complaining not support 2*HDD and succeed OS installing with 1*HDD.
How to add 2nd HDD after installing the OS with hardware detection DVD? I guess it's different procedure since it SATA controller.
Thanks in advance,
If you are using an IBM server you will need different procedures. http://forums1.itrc.hp.com/service/forums/questionanswer.do?threadId=1048925. Go to the second to last entry, which contains the instructions:
ACU allows you to migrate RAID for SCSI disk. All you need to do as below:
1. Original Array A with 36GB RAID 0.
2. Slot in the new disk.
3. In ACU highlight the Array A and choose Expand Array and add the new disk.
4. After expand the array, you should able to change your current RAID to 1+0.
Make sure the new disk size id equal or greater than old disk.
There is also the HP reference manual posted - http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bc/docs/support/SupportManual/c00294139/c00294139.pdf
the server model was MCS7816-H3 which is running with only one HDD. the model is not supporting dual HDD.
