RE: New Drives in MD1000 Issues

Hello SMOC,

Do all your drives have a Dell logo on them with a Dell part#?  The reason that I ask is that in some cases with drives that have the same model# but no Dell part# don’t get seen correctly by the MD1000.  Also were any of these drives pulled from another system or were they all purchased brand new?  If the drives are all brand new then you should be able to do a format on them & then be able to add them to your MD1000 virtual disk.  If the drives were pulled from another system then you may need to format them first & then insert them into the MD1000 as it could be reading data that was saved on the drives.  

Please let us know if you have any other questions.
