The following information is about using the following ServeRAID administration functions:

Array Administration

Use the following information for creating and deleting disk arrays.

Creating Disk Arrays:

  You can use disk arrays to improve security, performance, and reliability.

To create a disk array:

  1. Click on the   icon on the Tool Bar or select Manage Disk Arrays
     from the Advanced pull-down menu, then, select Create Disk Array. A screen similar to the following appears.
  2.  Select one or more Ready (RDY) drives for the new disk array from the Main screen of the Administration  and Monitoring Program.

     To select a RDY drive, click the desired RDY button from the device area. A disk array identifier appears  beside each RDY drive added to the disk array.

     If you change your mind about a selected drive, select the button again to remove the selected drive  from the disk array.

  3.  Click on OK to define a logical drive for the new array. A screen similar to the following appears.
  4.  Select the appropriate RAID level from the pull-down list.

    NOTE: The number of hard disk drives in the array determines the RAID levels available for the array.

  5.  Enter the Requested Space in the entry field.

     The ServeRAID program uses the maximum available space for the selected RAID level to calculate the  default value that it assigns.

    NOTE: The actual logical drive size might be slightly different from what you type  in the Requested Space field. The RAID level and the number of hard disk drives determine  the size of the logical drive.
     For example, a disk array consisting of three, 1 GB hard disk drives with a requested  RAID level-0 logical drive of 1000 MB will actually contain only 999 MB because the data is striped  across all three drives, with 333 MB on each drive.

  6.  Click on OK to create the disk array.
