Hello everyone. I picked up one of these drives off Ebay and I can't seem to get it recognized by my SAS controller (LSI 3008 onboard controller on a Supermicro MB). During POST (while the controller scans the bus), the drive doesn't show up. Other SAS and SATA drives show up fine, including the port I'm using for the XS7680SE70094. I know OEM rebranded drives are sometimes tricky to get working with standard equipment (like reformatting to 512 byte sectors), but I was expecting it to at least show up on the SAS bus scan.
