  Service hints & tips

Restoring the Disk-Array Configuration
To restore the disk-array configuration information in the RAID adapter EEPROM module, use the RAID controller diskette and an up-to-date Disk Array Configuration Backup diskette.

Because dynamic changes in the configuration of your disk array occur due to hot-spare drive replacement or other drive maintenance activity, the configuration backup information on the diskette might be different from that in the adapter. It is important that you back up the disk-array configuration information frequently, to keep the backup information on the diskette current.

To restore the RAID configuration information:
1. Insert the IBM RAID controller diskette into the primary drive and power-on the system. If the system already is on, press Ctrl+ Alt+ Del.
2. Select Advanced functions from the Main Menu.
3. Select Restore config. from diskette.
4. Follow the instructions on the screen.
