The Oracle System Assistant RAID Configuration task allows you to configure RAID-0, RAID-1, or RAID 10 for the server storage drives.
Note - Perform this task before installing an operating system.
When you configure RAID volumes, the disks must be the same size and the same type, (for example, SAS or SATA).
Use this procedure to configure RAID using Oracle System Assistant.
The RAID Configuration screen appears.
For example, the server supports the SAS6-REM-Z Express Module or the SGX-SAS6-R-REM-Z Express Module (if you want to create a bootable volume). For more information about these HBAs, refer to Preparing the Storage Drives to Install an Operating System in Sun Blade X3-2B (formerly Sun Blade X6270 M3) Installation Guide
Note - You can use Oracle System Assistant to set only these two RAID levels. To set other RAID levels, use the HBA BIOS Setup Utility.
The number of disks allowed in an array depends on the controller:
The SGX-SAS6-R-REM-Z HBA requires one or more disks and uses WebBIOS for configuration.
The SGS-SAS6-REM-Z HBA requires two or more disks and uses the Configuration Utility for configuration.
If a volume already exists on the disk, it appears in the Created Volumes section. If necessary, highlight and delete the existing volume.
Note - Disks must be the same size and type (SAS or SATA).
The Creating RAID Volume information box appears.
The Volume Details dialog box appears. Information about the highlighted volume is displayed.
The RAID Configuration screen appears. This completes the RAID configuration.
This action deletes all data on the existing volume.
The RAID Configuration screen now indicates the bootable volume. The server then boots from this volume if selected to boot from the RAID controller.
Note - Your disk controller might not support this feature.
