Drives not showing in UNRAID - HP DL380 GEN9, HP B6200 Backup Storage & PERC H200e

HI All,


New to Unraid and new to servers so apologies if I miss anything in this post.


I have the setup in title.  I have installed the latest version of UNRAID on USB key and everything runs a point.


I have 2x 148GB SAS and x2 1.8TB SAS drives in my HP DL380 Gen9 server.  In the backup storage I have 4x4TB SAS drives and soon a 1TB SSD cache drive connected to the server via a PERC H200e HBA (flashed to IT mode).  The card is enabled in the BIOS, the card is seen in UNRAID "System Information" and so are the 4x4TB drives.


Problem I have is I don't have the option to mount any of these drives into my array.  All I see in the dropdown is the 4 SAS drives I have installed in the server itself.




Any help would be much appreciated.  I'm pulling my hair out here!

HI Both,  thank you I've learned something new already.  So reading the other guys post you linked to I have to unmask the drives using the HP ssacli and using this command to clear previous configs "ssacli controller slot=3 physicaldrive 2I:1:1 modify clearconfigdata"

I have tried every programe under the sun to format these 4 undetected drives and everytime I try format them I get an error regarding i/o.  Can I format them within the UNRAID console as that is the only place I can see them?  Logical block size:   520 bytes still as before.

I'ce actually found a post you commented on a long time ago.

I'm running this command just now on one of the drives but it's painfully slow.

sg_format -v --format --size=512 /dev/sdb

Did you format the drives to 512B sector size?

I tried the solution in the link you suggested but I think because its a non HP card the system cant see it.  I still only had the option for the SAS drives in the server.
