Configuring RAID arrays

Through the Setup Utility, you can access utilities to configure RAID arrays.

The specific procedure for configuring arrays depends on the RAID controller that you are using. For details, see the documentation for your RAID controller. To access the utility for your RAID controller, complete the following steps:

  1. Turn on the server.
    Note: Approximately 10 seconds after the server is connected to power, the power-control button becomes active.
  2. When prompted, <F1 Setup> is displayed, press F1. If you have set an administrator password, you must type the administrator password to access the full Setup Utility menu. If you do not type the administrator password, a limited Setup Utility menu is available.
  3. Select System Settings > Storage.
  4. Press Enter to refresh the list of device drivers.
  5. Select the device driver for your RAID controller and press Enter.
  6. Follow the instructions in the documentation for your RAID controller.
