Configure RAID (OSA)

OSA is the easiest way to configure RAID on the server.

Note -  If you are using OSA to configure RAID, you can only configure RAID volumes to level 0 or 1. To configure other RAID levels, you must use the LSI utilities.
  1. Start OSA.

    See Start OSA.

    The OSA main window appears.

  2. Click Configure Hardware.

    The Hardware Configuration window appears.

  3. Click the RAID Configuration tab.

    The RAID Configuration window appears.

    Note -  Your screen might appear slightly different based on the type of HBA installed in your server.

    The Volume Details dialog box appears.

    Note -  If the server has the SGX-SAS6-INT-Z HBA installed, setting the RAID volume to bootable is not required.
  9. Click Save & Close.

    The RAID Configuration window reappears.

    Note -  If you want to delete a volume, select it and click Delete Volume.
  10. Click System Information to return to the OSA main screen.

    This completes the RAID configuration task.
