Hi, we have a DS4300 (base with dual controler) with 3 EXP810 enclosure with FC drives.
Now I want to add 4 new SATA drives.
We have the Intermix premium feature already installed (Mixed Drive Types: Enabled).
The firmware of the controler is 6.60.34.00, the EXP810 are at 98G0.
I have the IBM Storage Manager 9.60.G5.23, the enclosure that I want to add the drives has 12 FC and I want to add 4 SATA.
When I put it in the enclose, the lights come on, but I do not see them on the storage manager!
I see "Show FC" and "Show SATA", but the slots with the SATA drives are blank (I've attached a print screen).
The FC drives are the model 40K6823 (146G) and the SATA drivers are model 39M4557 (500G).
Is there something i'm missing? I thought the problem was the firmware, but this summer we updated everything to the latest version, but I still cannot see them!
Can someone help me?

Re: DS4300/EXP810 Intermix premium feature2012-09-12T00:49:36Z in response to EricPouliotYou need disk firmware Version 1.72 - 01/28/11 and you might want to upgrade to 1.78 since you have to stop all host i/o. and the latest firmware 06.60.34.00.

Re: DS4300/EXP810 Intermix premium feature2013-03-22T13:29:04Z in response to EricPouliotHello, I don't think that the intermix (SATA and FC sharing the same enclosure) is supported on DS4300, even if you have the feature activated.
"Attached EXP810s are supported with SATA disk drives only or FC disk drives only within each EXP810 enclosure. Intermix of FC and SATA disk drives within an EXP810 enclosure is not supported at this time."
