I have 2 Supermicro 5014-MT Server. They have 4 Sata ports and a LSI onboard raid controller.
I want to use this server only with 2 harddisk without raid function at all.
After a long time, I found out, when I choose the SATA option "combined mode" at least one harddisk was found by linux debian. But the second one was not found. The funny thing is, that the second harddisk from the left side is found but not the first one.
Does anybody know something about this problem? I don't want to use the raid function at all, I just want to use 2 Sata disks and 1 IDE cdrom drive.
Why you wouldnt want redundancy is beyond me, but yes, check the BIOS. Also, go into the SATA RAID BIOS (if it differs from the main BIOS) and delete any RAID setups you've got currently. Also, obviously, check power and cabling to both drives.
