There are several possible reasons why the WebGUI would be unable to connect to the RAID Enclosure:
- The RAID Enclosure’s Controller isn’t recognized by the system
- The Device ID is incorrect
- The HighPointIOP/HighPointRR driver isn’t loading
1)Confirm the Enclosure’s RAID Controller is recognized by the Mac system
Under System Profile, click on PCI and look for the RocketRAID controller entry (RR4520 example shown below):
RS6314A,RS6318A,RS6618A,RS6628A: Device ID:0x4520
RS6618T,RS6628T,RS6674T: Device ID:0x0840
2)Confirm the RAID Controller’s Device ID
As shown above, the ID should correspond with the Enclosure’s RAID controller.
3)Confirm the Driver is loading
As shown above “Driver Installed” should be listed as “Yes”.
