How do I set up a raid 5 configuration correctly using HP smartstart 7.7 CD?
Posted on 2007-03-28
At my workplace an order for a HP Prolient DL360 G5 has arrived. I have put 6 hds in the server and wish to configure them into all into a Raid 5 configuration so that if a HD fails it can be hot swapped with another empty hd and the information rebuilt.
I have booted into smartstart 7.7 and selected the option to "deploy server"
I have next launched the ACU which shows:
Smart Array P400i in Embedded slot
SAS Array A
Logical drive 1 (209924 mb, raid 5)
Does this mean that the disk is already set for hot swapping in a raid 5 config?
