RAID Configuration
This chapter provides instructions on setting up, creating, and configuring
RAID sets using the available utilities.
Chapter 2: RAID Configuration
2
2.1
Setting up RAID
The RAID card supports RAID 0, RAID 1, RAID 1E, and RAID 10.
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 at least 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.
RAID 10 is a striped configuration with RAID 1 segments whose segments are RAID 1 arrays.
This configuration has the same fault tolerance as RAID 1, and has the same overhead for
fault-tolerance as mirroring alone. RAID 10 achieves high input/output rates by striping RAID
1 segments. In some instances, a RAID 10 configuration can sustain multiple simultaneous
drive failure. A minimum of four hard disk drives is required for this setup.
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:
2-2
1.
Install the SAS hard disks into the drive bays following the instructions in the system
user guide.
2.
Connect a mini-SAS HD cable to the connector on the back plane and to the mini-SAS
HD connector on the card.
3.
Connect a power cable to the power connector on each drive or on the back plane.
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 sets from SAS hard disk drives supported by the LSI SAS 3008
Series controller: RAID 0, RAID 1, RAID 1E, and RAID 10.
•
You may use disks of different sizes in one volume; 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.
•
The adapter name shown on the setup screens differs according to the installed SAS
RAID card.
MPTFW and MPTBIOS version of the SAS RAID card
Take note of the MPTFW and MPTBIOS version of your SAS RAID card. You will need it if
you request support from the ASUS Technical Support team.
You can get the MPTFW and MPTBIOS version of your SAS RAID card from the main screen
(the Adapter List screen) of the the SAS configuration utility.

RAID 1 volume
The RAID 1 feature supports simultaneous mirrored volumes with two disks.
The RAID 1 feature supports hot swap capability, so when a disk in an RAID 1 volume fails,
you can easily restore the volume, and the swapped disk is automatically re-mirrored.
To create a RAID 1 volume:
1.
Turn on the system after installing all SAS hard disk drives.
2.
During POST, press <Ctrl>+<C> to enter the SAS configuration utility.
To avoid data loss, do not turn off the system when rebuilding.
3.
From the Adapter List screen, select the controller and press <Enter>.
The number of items displayed depends on the controller.

•
The disk does not meet the minimum requirements for use in a RAID volume.
•
The disk is not large enough to mirror existing data on the primary drive.
•
The disk is already part of another volume.
If a selected disk contains no files or data, the utility adds the disk to the array.
Chapter 2: RAID configuration
If the disks that you selected contains files or data, the following message appears on
the screen. To proceed, perform either of the following:
•
Click any key to continue.
•
Press <M> to keep existing data on the first disk. If you choose this option, data
on the first disk will be mirrored on the second disk that you will add to the volume
later. Ensure the data you want to mirror is on the first disk.
•
Press <D> to overwrite any data and create the new IM array on the selected
disks.
8.
Repeat step 6 - 7 to add another disk to the volume.

figure.
If the circle in the server icon is yellow instead of green, it means that the server is
running in a degraded state—for example, because a disk drive used in a virtual disk
has failed. If the circle is red, the storage configuration in the server has failed.

2.3.6
MegaRAID Storage Manager Window
This section describes the MegaRAID Storage Manager window, which is shown in the
following figure.
Physical/Logical View Panel
The left panel of the MegaRAID Storage Manager window displays either the Physical view
or the Logical view of the system and the devices in it, depending on which tab is selected.
•
The Physical view shows the hierarchy of physical devices in the system. At the top of
the hierarchy is the system itself. One or more controllers are installed in the system.
The controller label identifies the MegaRAID controller, such as the ASUS PIKE II 3008
Series controller, so that you can easily differentiate between multiple controllers. Each
controller has one or more ports. Disk drives and other devices are attached to the ports.
•
The Logical view shows the hierarchy of controllers, virtual disks, and disk groups that
are defined on the system. (Physical drives also appear in the Logical view, so you can
see which physical drives are used by each virtual disk.)
The following icons in the left panel represent the controllers, disk drives, and other devices:
•
System
•
Controller
•
Port
•
Volume
•
Virtual disk

Physical drive
A red circle to the right of an icon indicates that the device has failed. For example, this icon
indicates that a physical drive has failed:
.
A yellow circle to the right of an icon indicates that a device is running in a degraded state.
For example, this icon indicates that a virtual disk is running in a degraded state because a
disk drive has failed:
.
Properties View Panel
The right panel of the MegaRAID Storage Manager window has the Properties tab that
displays information about the selected device. For example, if a controller icon is selected in
the left panel, the Properties tab lists information such as the controller name, NVRAM size,
and device port count.
Event Log Panel
The lower part of the MegaRAID Storage Manager window displays the system event log
entries. New event log entries appear during the session. Each entry has an ID, a timestamp
and date, an error level indicating the severity of the event, and a brief description of the
event.
Menu Bar
Here are brief descriptions of the main selections on the MegaRAID Storage Manager menu
bar.
Manage Menu
The Manager menu has an Exit option for exiting from the MegaRAID Storage
Manager software. It also has a Refresh option for updating the display in the
MegaRAID Storage Manager window. (Refresh is seldom required; the display normally
updates automatically.) The Manage menu options also include Check Consistency,
Initialize, and Show Progress.
Go To Menu
The Go To menu is available when a controller, physical drive, or virtual disk is
selected in the MegaRAID Storage Manager window. The Go To menu options vary
depending on what type of device is selected in the left panel of the MegaRAID Storage
Manager window. For example, the Scan Foreign Configuration option is available
only when a controller is selected. The options also vary depending on the current state
of the selected device. For example, if you select an offline physical drive, the Make
Drive Online option will be available in the Go To menu.
