Picked up a 24-slot JBOD off eBay for $600.  Bought two disks for it.  Began following setup instructions here:

http://dataonsupport.dataonstorage.com/support/solutions/articles/6000112455-configuring-storage-spaces-with-dataon-jbod

Right now I have a R710 running Windows Server 2012 R2 standalone (no domain) connected to it.  The command Get-StorageEnclosure | SELECT * does return the DATAON and says it is healthy.

However, the command Get-PhysicalDisk -canpool $true | measure, after a time, says count 0 and nothing available.

Get-PhysicalDisk -canpool $false does return the two disks I have in the DataOn but says they are in a failed stated.  I can see the disks in Windows Disk Management but I cannot bring them online nor can I initialize them.  I get an I/O error. 

The disks are on the DataOn HCL which is here:

http://www.dataonstorage.com/dns-jbod-enclosure/dns-1600-4u-6g-sas-to-sas-sata-jbod-storage.html

However, they are not generic Seagate ST3600057SS.  They appear to have firmware for NetApp.  They have a NetApp part number on a sticker that is on the drive.  I'm wondering if that's causing the problem?  Or should I be looking elsewhere?

I presume this will have the same results - 
Code:

Get-PhysicalDisk | ? CanPool


How were the disk formatted?  #wag alert..

NetApp is a diff animal obviously but I thought most PowerShell Disk Info cmdlets still would provide info on them.

I do not know how the disks are formatted.  I got them off eBay as well (searched by model number).  Unfortunately, my R710's are Gen II so they take 2.5 inch drives whereas these are 3.5 inch drives.

Get-PhysicalDisk | ? CanPool takes about a minute or so but then doesn't return anything.

To be specific, for both disks, Get-PhysicalDisk -canpool $false returns OperationaStatus Failed Media and Healthstatus Unhealthy.  I also notice that these are 600G drives but the command says they are 410.31G.

System Event Log has entries for EventID 153 Source Disk Level Warning:  The IO operation at logical block address 0x0 for disk 1 (PDO name: \device\mpiodisk2) was retried.

The issue was confirmed to be the disk's firmware.  Although Seagate drives, they were running specialized firmware for NETAPP.  Once I replaced them with standard seagates the DataOn picked them right up.

Wes!  Good to hear from you again.  How have you been in Liberalville (CA)?

Yes, 24 disks in a RAID 0 is nothing but PURE AWESOME-SAUCE!
