Question about IBM eServer xSeries 346
We acquired a used eserver xseries 346 which came with two harddrives installed.
When we booted it up we got a physical drives not found error and attempts to install operating system fail because of not found drives.
Both of the drives have orange lights on.
What to do next?
I"t says one logical drive is offline and two physical drives are defunct."
sounds like RAID. Try booting up off of one drive. If there is no OS, try keeping one drive in the drive bay and see if you get a orange light then. like dereknewland said, could be the backplane.
