PowerEdge r230 seeing Samsung EVO SDD as cdrom on Ubuntu 19.10
A friend gave me a PowerEdge r230, my first foray into servers. I previously installed Ubuntu 16.10 and 2 Samsung EVO 256G SDD. They showed up as hard drives and I was able to use them.
Now, I didn't use it for a while and am back at it. I reinstalled Ubuntu, upgrading to 19.10. Now, one hard drive shows up as sr0 and the other is missing.
I tried switching the SATA options to RAID or AHCI. Same problem either way. (Turning off the SATA mode on the scsi doesn't work either.) I also tried booting via BIOS and UEFI, but always the same problem. Happy to post more diagnostics info if requested. Any suggestions most welcome.
