Backing Up Your Disk-Array Configuration

The RAID adapter maintains a record of the disk-array configuration information in its EEPROM (electronically erasable programmable read-only memory) module. The disk-array configuration is vital information. To protect this information, back up the information to diskette as soon as you have completed your tasks. You need a blank, formatted, 3.5-inch diskette.

To back up the disk-array configuration information to diskette:
1. Label the blank diskette 'Disk Array Configuration Backup,Ā“ and date it.
2. Start the RAID configuration program. See 'Starting the RAID Configuration ProgramĀ“ .
3. Select Advanced functions from the Main Menu.
4. Select Backup config. to diskette.
5. Remove the RAID controller diskette from the drive and insert the blank diskette.
6. Follow the instructions on the screen.
