Server having two CPU - 1xSSD (bay1), 1-HDD 600GB SAS bay2 and 1-HDD 600GB SAS bay3
I setuped raid0 for all HDDS
SSD - will be hot data
bay2 HDD - OS
bay3 - for cold Data

Hi,
HP DL360 has known issues, there are several threads discussing them, search the forum for "HP DL360" or maybe just "DL360" . For example the following thread where the first poster collected some material in one post:
https://next.nutanix.com/discussion-forum-14/ce-on-older-hp-g5-g6-g7-servers-6434
Note that different DL360 generations may have different issues, but some ideas from these threads may help you as well.

Download hpacuaoffline and recreate RAID0
