this is a continious question of this : http://www.experts-exchange.com/Hardware/Servers/Q_23836198.html?cid=239#a22775189
I have an old compaq ML 530 server with 3 Scsi hardrive installed, now i have installed extra 2 hardrive, but i need to configure smart array 221 for this.
Now my confusion is : why do i have to install software in linux to reconfigure smart array ??
is not something should be configure while system is booting ?? like if want to add another harddrive in normal pc, i will go to bios and then will add. I dont add hardrive from OS, do i ??
so why for Smart array i need to install from linux ??
