|Sun Fire X4640 Server Service Manual Sun Fire X4640 Server Documentation Library|
The Sun Fire X4640 server uses an on-board LSI 1064E SAS disk controller chip. The 1064E chip supports integrated RAID (IR). Therefore, the 1064E chip allows integrated mirroring (IM), integrated mirroring enhanced (IME), and integrated striping (IS). A disk and RAID configuration utility resides in the 1064E BIOS. You can access this utility during the server power on self test (POST) sequence and use it to configure the 1064E chip for RAID.
Note - You can also use an OS-level application, such as MegaRAID Storage Manager (MSM), to manage and configure RAID on your server.
For an overview of disk management on Sun servers, see the Sun Disk Management Overview document (820–6350) at http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/indexes/documentation/index.html.
For information about configuring RAID using LSI-based controllers that support integrated RAID, see the Sun LSI 106x RAID User's Guide (820–4933) at http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/indexes/documentation/index.html.
For instructions about how to access the configuration utility that resides in the LSI 1064E's BIOS, see How to Configure the LSI BIOS.
