raid installation problem
Posted on 2010-11-24
in our office we bought one HP Proliante dl 380 g7. i want to install windows server 2003 r2 in that.
in that server i have 8 hard drives. 2 were 146 GB and remaining 6 were 300 GB.
i want to create RAID 1 with 2 HDD ( 146 GB) and one 300 GB for hot spare.
i want to create RAID 5 with the remaining 5 HDD ( 300 GB).
I used START SMART cd and i created RAID 1 and i want to create RAID 5, but its only allowing to create RAID 0.
why i am getting this type of problem?
after creating i installed o/s. but later i again try to reconfigure RAID but i am getting the same problem.
after creating the RAID i rebooted the server and checked the Controllers status, i got the below message,
Slot 0 HP smart array P410i controller ( 0 MB , V 3.50) 2 logical drives.
Slot 1 HP smart array P410 controller ( 250 MB, V 3.50) 0 logical drives
1785 - slot 1 drive array not configured.
Please help me to solve this issue.
