Note - Perform this task before installing an operating system.
Follow these steps to configure RAID using Oracle System Assistant.
The RAID Configuration screen appears.
For example, the server supports the SGX-SAS6-INT-Z HBA or the SGX-SAS6-R-INT-Z HBA (if you want to create a bootable volume). For more information about these HBAs, refer to the Installation , Configuring Server Drives for OS Installation.
You can use Oracle System Assistant to set only these three RAID levels. To set other RAID levels, you need to use the HBA BIOS Setup Utility.
The number of disks allowed in an array is dependent on the controller.
The SGX-SAS6-R-INT-Z HBA requires one or more disks.
The SGS-SAS6-INT-Z HBA requires two or more disks.
If a volume already exists on the disk, it appears in the Created Volumes section. If necessary, highlight and delete the existing volume.
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.
If you want to delete a RAID volume, in the RAID Configuration screen, select the RAID volume, then click the Delete Volume button.
This action deletes all data on the existing volume.
If you want to create a bootable volume, in the RAID Configuration screen, select the RAID volume, then click the Set Volume for Boot button.
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.
