The Oracle System Assistant RAID Configuration screen allows you to configure RAID 0, RAID 1, RAID 5, or RAID 10 for the server storage drives.
When you configure RAID volumes, the disks must be the same size and the same type (for example, SAS or SATA).
Before You Begin
Review Oracle's recommendations for drive slot population and virtual drive creation. See your server documentation for details.
See Accessing Oracle System Assistant for details.
The RAID Configuration screen appears.
For example, your server might support the SGX-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 your server hardware documentation.
The number of disks allowed in an array depends on the controller. For example:
The SGX-SAS6-REM-Z HBA requires two or more disks and uses the Configuration Utility for configuration.
The SGX-SAS6-R-REM-Z HBA requires one or more disks and uses WebBIOS for configuration.
The Available Disks table appears.
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 message appears.
If you choose, you can leave the volume name empty and add it later.
The volume is created. The Volume Details dialog box displays information about the highlighted volume.
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 that the volume is bootable. This volume is now the boot device for the HBA.
