when did this beast last work.
see the manual yet>
there are many 370s ,which one, the full service tag answers that.
G , 2, on up. 9????????????
use google to find old manuals.
here is g2
here is HP site covering retired products, I suspect your is..
HPE has the , 642 book here. (just a spec)
if read that page it tells you the controller is only works with
Compatibility with all Ultra320, Ultra3 and Ultra2 LVD family products.
it also tells you , it needs the HP utility tools to set it up properly
why would your clean disks boot? why say that?
what does this mean?
"and i replace hard drives to clean and check"
surely you can elaborate the full story,
last run when?> what G number is it.
what drives , make and model. installed.
do you have the software setup seen on page 5 link just above.
All Smart Array products share a common set of configuration, management and diagnostic tools,
including Array Configuration Utility, Array Diagnostic Utility (ADU), and Insight Manager.
this product is offically retired, by hp and only few books there.
but google finds many books, 15 years old now. (as old as...)
see this, it tells you what to do in 77 pages.
my guess is you get lost at Set the boot controller
my guess, is that you have no HP sofware support kits.
just hardware there.... right?
next time tell the helper, full spec on 370 Gn G numer.
and full spec , on 642, version. and that you dont have the HP software kit to support this machine, it's no simple desktop, no at all.
at the least you get stuck here,
Create at least one logical drive
, as described in Chapter 5.
