
If you use memory mirroring, set Mirroring.
If you use memory lock step, set Lock Step.
If you use online spare memory, set Sparing.
When you use memory mirroring, memory lock step, or online spare memory,
you need to understand the restrictions on the configuration of memory boards.


Changed from Auto to 1.5V for the configuration of DDR Voltage.

Xeon processer E5-2670 or E5-2690 should be mounted, and the number of
mounted DIMM should be 1DPC* or 2DPC*.
* DPC (DIMM per channel) is the number of DIMM per channel.

–
1DPC: Less than or equal to 1 DIMM is mounted in each channel.

Device Tagging
You can use device tagging, where redundancy is enabled at the DRAM chip level
so that the system unit can avoid system down and can continue operation even
when one DRAM chip on the DIMM fails.
Device tagging is not operated when you set Memory Mode to Mirroring, Lock
Step, or Sparing. If you use device tagging, set Memory Mode to
Independent.

Disk array utility for the system
The system equipment can set a disk array using the utility “MegaRAID
WebBIOS”.
Under normal operation, you do not need to change the settings.
Setting is required only if you need to change the system configuration, for
example, when you have changed disks.
Operate MegaRAID WebBIOS in accordance with descriptions in this manual.
Otherwise, it may not work properly. Do not execute the operation other than
described in this manual.
Connect a mouse to the system unit before starting MegaRAID
WebBIOS.
Type of RAID controllers
Two types of RAID controller are installed to system units. Those Two types differ
in whether the controller is with or without a cache backup module.
In the MegaRAID WebBIOS menus, the controller types are displayed below:

RAID controller with cache backup module: LSI MegaRAID SAS 9266-8i

RAID controller without cache backup module: LSI MegaRAID SAS 9267-8i
Note that in the following description, some setup items and setup steps may
differ depending on the type of the RAID controller.

Building and editing virtual drives
This section describes the procedure for building virtual drives.
The building of disk arrays should be entirely performed with Configuration
Wizard.
NOTICE
Do not change the configuration of the virtual drives during system
operations. If you change the configuration, all data will be lost from
those physical drives due to change in the virtual drive.
Set each item to the recommended value unless otherwise specific
directions are given. Otherwise, the system may not properly operate.
We have no responsibility for the malfunction due to the setting except
our recommended values.
The maximum number of the virtual drives you can construct per RAID
controller is 64.
The maximum number of the virtual drives you can construct on one

Choose the type as required.


Before you make a hot spares, you need to build a virtual drive with
redundancy (RAID 1, 5, 6, 10).
For the disk array configured with HDDs, install HDD as reserve
drive; for the disk array configured with SSDs, install SSD as
reserve drive. Other type of disk array cannot be configured as
reserve drive.
1. Click the physical drive you want to use as a hot spare from the list in the
