create raid Subcommand

The create raid subcommand can be used to create RAID volumes. This subcommand must take at least one of the following required options:

Short Option
Long Option
List of disks — A list of disks with a comma separating the disk ID numbers.
The controller ID number — When specific disks are not supplied, this option indicates which controller to use.
Number of disks — The number of disks in the array. The tool chooses from the available disks. If there are not enough disks available to match the number, the command fails.
Level — The RAID level supported by the controller. For example, 0, 1, 1E, 5, 10, 50, 60, etc. The levels supported for a particular controller can be seen in the raid levels supported field of the show command. Not all controllers support all RAID levels. For example, Adaptec supports 0, 1, 5, 10, and 50. Since any RAID level can be set, it is possible that the command results in an error if the RAID level is not supported. If no RAID level is supplied, level 0 is assumed.
Stripe size — In kilobytes, the stripe size of the RAID volume to be created. If this option is not supplied, a stripe size of 128 K is used.
Leg size in number of disks — For nested RAID levels (10, 50), specifies the size of the RAID components in number of physical disks.
Name — The user-defined name that identifies the RAID volume. This name can be set to an empty string ("").

The maximum capacity of the RAID volume is not configurable. The storage library does not currently support configuring RAID from partial disks. You can only create RAID volumes from full disks not partial and the disks must all be of the same size.
