raidconfig Requirements

Before running raidconfig, note the following requirements:


Caution  -  raidconfig can scan your controllers and connected disks and list disks that are either already in a RAID volume, or available to be included in a RAID volume. However, raidconfig cannot tell if an available disk has data on it, or if a disk is otherwise used as either a boot disk or logical disk for an application. Before using raidconfig to create volumes (which will overwrite any existing data), use operating system tools to take an inventory of attached disks, their enumeration, and whether they contain data that you want to preserve.

  • Root permissions are required to run raidconfig commands on Unix-based platforms.

  • On Oracle Solaris, raidconfig is not compatible with the raidctl CLI tool. raidconfig supports SAS2 and SAS3, 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.
