We got a "new" server that I have been working on setting up. The server is a PowerEdge R820. It looks like Bio's came updated.
We are going to be running 16x 2TB Samsung 860 Pro SSD's in this server. I finally got to boot the server up today and I was going to configure it and I was getting: PDR1001 on Drive 4 in Disk Bay 1. I looked at the iDRAC log: Event ID 6 Normal Thurs Dec 26, 2019, 11:16:09 Drive 4 in dis drive bay 1 is operating normally.
Event ID 7 Critical Thurs Dec 26, 2019, 11:19:40 Fault detected on drive 4 in disk drive bay 1.
As I mentioned I am running 16x drives so I swapped out drive 4 with another drive not having issues. Drive 4 continued to have issues and I did a couple more swaps just to be sure.
Is it possible to have a bad Backplane port? The hardware is all used hardware and not new (except for the SSD's).
Another thing I tried was removing all the drives from Disk Bay 1 and just having a drive in #4 and I was still running into issues.
I really don't know what else the issue could be, to be honest. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thank you!
