Create a RAID Volume

The LSI SAS2 BIOS Configuration Utility resides in the HBA firmware. Use this procedure under either of these conditions:

  • You want to configure RAID on the intended OS installation drive, regardless of the installed HBA, and the server does not have OSA or you do not want to use it.

  • If your server has the Oracle Storage 12 Gb SAS PCIe RAID HBA internal 8 port 1 GB memory installed and you want to create a RAID volume level 5, 6, 10, 50, or 60 using the drive on which you plan to install the OS.

    Note -  OSA only supports RAID 0 or 1 for the Oracle Storage 12 Gb SAS PCIe RAID HBA.
  • You do not want to create a RAID volume, but the intended OS installation drive has not been initialized and the server has the Oracle Storage 12 Gb SAS PCIe RAID HBA installed.

  1. Create one or more RAID volumes (virtual drives).

    Refer to the instructions in LSI's MegaRAID SAS Software User's Guide.

  2. If you created m one virtual drive, make one virtual drive bootable.

    For instructions, see Make a Virtual Drive Bootable (WebBIOS utility).

    Note -  The MegaRAID SAS Software User's Guide does not include instructions for making a drive bootable.
