The Oracle Hardware Management Pack raidconfig tool allows you to configure RAID in band from the operating system command line.
Before You Begin
Verify that your HBA is supported for your server, and review Oracle's recommendations for drive slot population and virtual drive creation. See your server documentation for details.
Ensure that you have root permission on UNIX-based platforms or administrator privileges on Windows.
On Oracle Solaris, raidconfig is not compatible with the raidctl CLI tool. raidconfig supports SAS2, but the raidctl tool does not.
For servers running Oracle Solaris, after hot-plugging any device, run the devfsadm -C command to reenumerate all of the system device nodes before running the raidconfig command.
This command does not support some configurations. For details, see:
