Smart Array Controllers on an HP Proliant DL380 G4

By msokolski ·
I recently inherited several HP Proliant DL380 G4 servers from an acquisition and we want to use them in production. Ive built 4 of them without an issue but 1 has me stumped. There is a Smart Array 6400 controller with 2 channels and there is an embedded Smart Array 6i controller. I need to get all six 300GB drives in 1 array but the drive bays are split between the 2 controllers. I have 4 drives on the 6400 and two drives on the 6i. Does anyone know how to get all 6 on the 6400 controller?

I cant find the solution online and was hoping someone could guide me in the right direction.

Smart Array controllers

On your backplane you should see three 68pin scsi connectors. At the moment you should have the 6400 plugged into one, the 6i into another and one blank. You need to plug the 6400 where the 6i is plugged, and connect the other two together with a short cable. When you create the array you must tell the system that it is a boot device.
