Hi,I have a RAID controller (SATA x4 RAID DELOCK 70154) and I have the following problem.The RAID configuration (just as BIOS) I have set up with two identical drives RAID 1... [by puciol86]
I recently acquired an LSI 2108 chip based RAID card.
It's current F/W configuration is, as an IBM m5015 MEGA-RAID SAS/SATA controller with a write back BBU.
I have 2 virtual drives configured.
The first VD is two Samsung 840 EVO 500GB SSd's in a RAID-1, they have the Win-7x64 boot system on them.
The second VD is 5 WD-black 2 TB spinners in a RAID-5.
I have a 6 port SATA RAID card (taken out of an HP ML150 G2 server). What i want to do is connect the Sata Hard Drives that i have to this card without formatting or loosing any data on the hard drive.
Can this be done. And also i do not want to create a RAID Array, I just want to install the hard drives without RAID.
I am working on decommissioning an old server for a client. The server is an older Dell PowerEdge 1600sc with four SCSI drives. Two are stand-alone, and the other two are in RAIDx (not sure the actual RAID id). It does not have an integrated RAID controller (nothing under integrated devices in the BIOS related to RAID), the client has a PowerEdge Expandable RAID controller PCI card for that.
user@node150:~$ lspci | grep -i raid
04:00.0 RAID bus controller: LSI Logic / Symbios Logic MegaRAID SAS 2108 [Liberator] (rev 04)
Is there a program I can use to monitor the hard drives and raid configuration of the server it is installed to? I have seen the docs of LSI and there is a provided Megaraid Storage Manager which is a web gui tool.
