Card installation
Follow below instructions to install the RAID card on your motherboard.
1.
Locate the PIKE RAID card slot on
the motherboard.
2.
Align the golden fingers of the RAID
card with the PIKE RAID card slot.
3.
Insert the RAID card into the PIKE
RAID card slot. Make sure it’s
completely inserted into the PIKE
RAID card slot.
Connect the SAS hard disk
drives to SAS connectors 1-4

Chapter 1: Product introduction
This chapter provides instructions on setting

the available utilities.

Chapter 2: RAID
configuration
2.1
Setting up RAID
The RAID card supports RAID 0, RAID 1 and RAID 1E set.
2.1.1
RAID definitions
RAID 0 (Data striping) optimizes two identical hard disk drives to read and write
data in parallel, interleaved stacks. Two hard disks perform the same work as a
single drive but at a sustained data transfer rate, double that of a single disk alone,
thus improving data access and storage. Use of two new identical hard disk drives
is required for this setup.
RAID 1 (Data mirroring) copies and maintains an identical image of data from one
drive to a second drive. If one drive fails, the disk array management software
directs all applications to the surviving drive as it contains a complete copy of
the data in the other drive. This RAID configuration provides data protection and
increases fault tolerance to the entire system. Use two new drives or use an
existing drive and a new drive for this setup. The new drive must be of the same
size or larger than the existing drive.
RAID 1E (Enhanced RAID 1) has a striped layout with each stripe unit having a
secondary (or alternate) copy stored on a different disk. You can use three or more
hard disk drives for this configuration.
If you want to boot the system from a hard disk drive included in a created RAID
set, copy first the RAID driver from the support CD to a floppy disk before you
install an operating system to the selected hard disk drive.
2.1.2
Installing hard disk drives
The RAID card supports SAS for RAID set configuration. For optimal performance,
install identical drives of the same model and capacity when creating a disk array.
To install the SAS hard disks for RAID configuration:
1.
2.
3.
2-2
Install the SAS hard disks into the drive bays following the instructions in the
system user guide.
Connect a SAS signal cable to the signal connector at the back of each drive
and to the SAS connector on the motherboard.
Connect a power cable to the power connector on each drive.
Chapter 2: RAID configuration
2.2
LSI Corporation MPT Setup Utility
The LSI Corporation MPT Setup Utility is an integrated RAID solution that allows
you to create the following RAID set(s) from SAS hard disk drives supported by the
LSI SAS 1064E controller:
•
RAID 1 (Integrated Mirroring)
•
RAID 0 (Integrated Striping)
•
RAID 1E (Integrated Mirroring Enhanced)
2.2.1
•
You may use disks of different sizes in IM and IME volumes; however, the
size of the smallest disk determines the “logical” size of each member disk.
•
DO NOT combine Serial ATA and SAS disk drives in one volume.
•
The RAID setup screens shown in this section are for reference only and
may not exactly match the items on your screen due to the controller
version difference.
Integrated Mirroring volume
The Integrated Mirroring (IM) feature supports simultaneous mirrored volumes with
two disks (IM).
The IM feature supports hot swap capability, so when a disk in an IM volume fails, you
can easily restore the volume, and the swapped disk is automatically re-mirrored.
To create an IM volume:
1.
2.
Turn on the system after installing all SAS hard disk drives.
During POST, press <Ctrl+C> to enter the SAS configuration utility.

Managing hot spares
You may configure one disk as a global hot spare to protect critical data on the IM/IME
volume(s). You may create the hot spare disk at the same time you create the IM/IME
volume. Refer to this section when adding a hot spare disk on an existing volume.
If a disk on an IM/IME volume fails, the utility automatically rebuilds the failed
disk data on the hot spare. When the failed disk is replaced, the utility assigns
the replacement as the new hot spare.
To create a hot spare:
1.

Synchronizing the array
Synchronizing the array allows the utility to resynchronize data on the mirrored disk
in the array. This procedure is seldom required because data synchronization is
automatically done during normal operation.
To synchronize the array:
1. Follow steps 1–3 of the section Viewing volume properties and step 2 of
the section Managing hot spares.
2.
From the Manage Array screen select Synchronize Array, then press <Enter>.

This chapter provides instructions for
installing the RAID drivers on different
operating systems.

3.1
RAID driver installation
After creating the RAID sets for your server system, you are now ready to install
an operating system to the independent hard disk drive or bootable array. This part
provides instructions on how to install or update the RAID card drivers.
The RAID card driver might be included in the Linux OS installation CD, and
could be loaded automatically during OS installation. However, we recommend
using the RAID driver packaged in the RAID card support CD for better
reliability.
3.1.1
Creating a RAID driver disk
You may have to use another system to create the RAID driver disk from the
RAID card support CD or from the Internet.
A floppy disk with the RAID driver is required when installing Windows® Server 2003
or Linux operating system on a hard disk drive that is included in a RAID set. You
can create a RAID driver disk in DOS (using the Makedisk application in the support
CD).
To create a RAID driver disk in DOS environment:
1.
Place the RAID card support CD in the optical drive.
3.
Select the optical drive as the first boot priority to boot from the support CD.
Save your changes, then exit the BIOS Setup.
2.
4.
5.
Restart the computer, then enter the BIOS Setup.
Restart the computer.
Press any key when prompted to boot from CD.

Press any key to boot from CDROM...

The Makedisk menu appears. Select PIKE 1064E SAS Driver, and press
<Enter> to enter the sub-menu.
