RAID 10 setup

I'm new at setting up a RAID configuration so I apologize in advice for the dumb question.

I have a PERC 6/i Controller and 4 drives that I configured in the bios for RAID 10.  Now I'm going to install Linux CentOS 6.  During the installation process when it gets to setting up disk drives do I need to configure anything for the RAID here, or can I just use the default settings for the hard drive configuration?  Not sure if setting the RAID in the bios means I didn't have to configure anything in the OS install?

Thanks.

The RAID array should appear to be a single disk to the OS so you shouldn't have to do anything special when installing CentOS.

Hi,

Since you have already configured your drives as a RIAD volume. Your Linux system should see it asa single disk. You you don't need to install anything. PERC drivers are in the kernel drivers since the version 4.4. So you won't need any extra drivers. You have configured your RAID in the BIOS so all your RHEL system sees is a single dirve with no configurable options for RAID. The RAID options you might see during the disk partitioning is for the systems that do not support RAID in BIOS or you prefer to install software RIAD and don't use existing RAID for portability reasons.

Cheers,
K.
