Hi,

I am trying to configure raid on this server and unable to.
I do not have a bootable-cd.
the card installed on the pci-express slot is LSI, pressing ctrl+c on the boot does not help me to configure raid.

i've been searching all over for a ServeRaid / WebBios boot cd but unable to find.

can someone assist ?

thanks.

Got it, booted from it, didn't have the option to set RAID, brought me through the steps of configuration until it reached the partition creation and formatting which is too late for RAID.

I think i'm going to open a service request at IBM .

There's probably a problem with the server that's why I cannot see the raid option but this is the correct method.
thanks.
