MD3000 DELL Unsupported drive

Recommended Posts

Was the drive bought from Dell? If so I can give you my email address so you can email me your order number and I can look into this a little deeper for you. If it was bought from a 3rd party vendor and it has their firmware on it there would be no way to get it to show up in the MD 3000 as there will be a conflict of metedata on the drive. I look forward to hearing from you.

Upgrading the firmware in the backplane should make it accept any drive, as the whole "Unsupported drive" thing was retarded, and they removed it.

What exactly do you mean by "upgrading the firmware in the backplane" ? The only firmwares I know of for this device are the RAID controller module firmware and the RAID controller module NVSRAM. Or am I missing something? What backplane do you mean?
