HP Dynamic Smart Array B120i/B320i Controller - No Option to Expand Array in ACU

Issue

User has a B320i, with the 512MB cache module and SAS license installed. Additional drives have been added to the server and user wishes to expand the array, then extend the logical drive.

When looking through the Array Configuration Utility (ACU) there is no option to do this.

Solution

B series Smart Array Controllers do not allow for this functionality. This option is available on most P series Smart Array Controllers.

If the user wishes to upgrade to the P series Smart Array, instructions for performing this action are included in the HP Dynamic Smart Array User Guide.
