Configuring Storage Resources

This section provides instructions for configuring RAID and iSCSI virtual drives.

In order to boot and install an OS, the drive(s) must be configured for RAID and made bootable. If you want to boot from a drive that is not part of a RAID array, you must configure it as a RAID 0 volume.

Note -  Some drives are shipped preconfigured with a RAID 0 volume.

In any case, you should finish configuring RAID before installing an operating system..

If you prefer to run a supported operating system that resides on an external server, you must configure iSCSI virtual drive parameters in the BIOS Setup Utility.

Configure RAID on the server.
Configure iSCSI virtual drive parameters.
