PowerEdge T110 No boot device after RAID card replaced

Hello all, I have a PowerEdge T110 that’s been having some issues over the past couple weeks and I was instructed to replace the RAID Card (UCS-61). After I replaced the card I’m getting an error message that no boot device available, current boot mode is set to bios. Is there anything else that has to be done after swapping out the board so that it will detect the drives? Thanks!

Re: PowerEdge T110 No boot device after RAID card replaced

first read your manual on the unstated raid card.

see sections on this exact act.

some raid cards new , may need the drives 1 by 1, installed and relearned.  (called recovery I think)

also what RAID arrays did you have, how many disks and if in RAID 6 mode? or 10?

best is not rush ahead   (not saying you are)

Hello

I am guessing that you are using a SAS6iR controller. If that is the case then you would need to activate the virtual disk if you swapped out controllers. You can find more information in the controller manual (Serial Attached SCSI 6iR Integrated and Adapter).
