Does Genesis need drives to be inserted in any specific order?


After the RAIDs are initially provisioned, the drives can be recognized by the software regardless of order, but to keep the physical slot to logical drive mapping accurate, they will need to be inserted in slots as they were in when the RAID was configured.

For Scale Logic Genesis RX and RX2 hardware, please follow the Readme included in the shipping box, which shows a "bottom to top, then left to right" order like illustrated below:
