4th HDD doesn't initialize on Proliant N54L+DSM 6.0.2-8451


Recommended Posts



After having upgraded successfully my DSM 5.2 to 6.0 having a 3 HDD Raid volume, I added a 4th HDD by using a 6TB Western Digital Red model.


My problem is that even if I swap its slot with one of the other 3 HDD, it won't initialize in DSM making it impossible for me to expand the RAID volume.


Yet this HDD was still working perfectly under Windows when I was copying the data from its NTFS partition on another backup HDD, before plugging it in my HP Proliant N54NL.


You can see its status in DSM storage manager with this screenshot :

Does anybody have a clue on why it won't initialize ?
