RAID configuration is usually completed before installing an operating system. However, it is possible to create a RAID volume on nonboot disks after installing an operating system.
Use these resources for creating and managing the RAID resources in your server:
OSA – You can use OSA to create RAID 0 or 1 level volumes and prepare drives for OS installation. See Configure RAID (OSA).
Oracle HMP 2.2 – You can use the raidconfig commands contained in this software's Oracle Server CLI Tools component to create and manage RAID volumes on your server. Refer to the Oracle HMP documentation at http://www.oracle.com/pls/topic/lookup?ctx=ohmp.
(SGX-SAS6-INT-Z HBA only) LSI SAS2 Integration RAID Configuration Utility – You can use the sas2ircu commands contained in the LSI SAS2 Integrated RAID Configuration Utility to configure and manage RAID volumes on your server.
You can download the SAS2IRCU software from the following location: http://www.avagotech.com/
(Oracle Storage 12 Gb SAS PCIe RAID HBA) LSI MegaCLI or MegaRAID Storage Manager – You can use the LSI MegaCLI command-line tool or the MegaRAID Storage Manager graphical interface to configure and manage RAID volumes for Oracle Storage 12 Gb SAS PCIe RAID HBA.
