Configure RAID (Oracle Hardware Management Pack)

Before You Begin

Ensure the following:

  • The disk drives have been properly installed on the server.

    For more information, review the server service manual.

  • The host bus adapter (HBA) installed on the server is supported.

    A list of supported HBAs is provided in the server product notes.

  • If the server is running a UNIX-based platform, you have root permission.

  • If the server is running the Oracle Solaris operating system, note the following:

    • 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.


Caution  -  Changing the RAID configuration erases all the data on the affected drives, including the OS. If you change the RAID configuration on a boot drive, you must reinstall the OS.

  1. Access the operating system command-line with root privileges.

    For more information, see Accessing the Host Console or Accessing Oracle Hardware Management Pack.

  2. Use the raidconfig create raid command:

    raidconfig create raid [--level level] [--stripe-size stripeSize] [--subarrays sizeOfRAIDcomponents] [--name volumeName] [--subdisk-size size] -disks disks
