Sun Ultra 27 Workstation Windows Operating System Installation Guide

Managing RAID Using the MegaRAID Storage Manager

The MegaRAID Storage Manager (MSM) program enables you to configure the LSI-based integrated RAID controller, physical disk drives, and virtual disk drives on your system. The Configuration wizard in the MSM program simplifies the process of creating disk groups and virtual disk drives by guiding you through several simple steps to create your storage configurations.

MSM works with the appropriate operating system (OS) libraries and drivers to configure, monitor, and maintain storage configurations attached to x64 servers. The MSM GUI displays device status in the form of icons, which represent the controllers, virtual disk drives, and physical disk drives on your system. Special icons appear next to the device icons on the screen to notify you of disk failures and other events that require immediate attention. System errors and events are recorded in an event log file and are displayed on the screen.

For information on using MSM, refer to the Sun LSI 106x RAID User's Guide for your server on the Sun product documentation web site at:
