This RAID controller
card supports a maximum of 16 hard disks.
A RAID controller card
has specifications for hard disks and only supports a maximum number of hard
disks. If the disk number exceeds this number, hard disks cannot be identified
by the RAID controller card even if the hard disk enclosure supports insertion.
As a result, the self-check for system startup fails.
Check the number of hard
disks supported by a RAID controller card before initial configuration.
