Thank you for purchasing the MegaRAID SCSI 320-2E Controller.
Please take a few minutes to read this quick hardware setup guide
before you install the MegaRAID SCSI 320-2E. If you need more
information about any topic covered in this guide, refer to the other
documents on your MegaRAID Universal Software Suite CD.
If the MegaRAID SCSI 320-2E Controller appears to be damaged,
or if the MegaRAID Universal Software Suite CD is missing, contact
LSI Logic or your MegaRAID OEM support representative.
Contents of MegaRAID Universal Software Suite CD
The MegaRAID Universal Software Suite CD is packaged with the
MegaRAID SCSI 320-2E. The CD contains utility programs, device
drivers for various operating systems, and the following
documentation:
Unpack and install the MegaRAID SCSI 320-2E Controller in a
static-free environment. Remove the MegaRAID SCSI 320-2E from
the antistatic bag and inspect it for damage.
Step 2: Prepare the Computer
Turn off the computer and remove the power cord from the back of
the power supply. Remove the cover from the chassis. Make sure
the computer is disconnected from the power and from any
networks before installing the controller card.
Step 3: Review the MegaRAID Controller Jumpers
Make sure the jumper settings on the MegaRAID SCSI 320-2E are
correct. The jumpers are set at the factory, and you probably do not
need to change them. The following table lists the jumpers and
connectors on the RAID controller.

Step 4: Install the MegaRAID SCSI 320-2E Controller
Install the MegaRAID SCSI 320-2E Controller in a PCI-Express slot,
as shown in the following figure. Press down gently, but firmly, to make
sure that the card is properly seated in the slot. The bottom edge of
the controller card must be flush with the slot. Attach the MegaRAID
SCSI 320-2E to the computer chassis with the bracket screw.
Caution: If your board has a memory module, never apply
pressure to the module when inserting the adapter.
Applying pressure could break the module.
Connect SCSI devices to the internal, high-density, 68-pin SCSI
connectors (J9 and J10) and/or the external, very-high density,
68-pin SCSI connectors (J12 and J14). To achieve maximum data
throughput, use only Ultra320 SCSI devices. The MegaRAID SCSI
320-2E Controller supports up to 30 Ultra320 SCSI devices at a
maximum SCSI bus cable length of 12 meters. You also can
connect Ultra160 and Ultra2 SCSI devices. The MegaRAID 320
Storage Adapters User’s Guide lists the maximum number of
devices and maximum cable length for each SCSI device.
Disable SCSI termination on all devices that are not connected at
the end of the SCSI bus. Use only high-quality ribbon SCSI cables
for internal devices and high-quality round SCSI cables for
external devices.
Step 6: Set the Target IDs for the SCSI Devices
Each connected SCSI device must have a unique Target ID (TID),
ranging from 0 to 15 for 16-bit devices. Note that under the DOS
Advanced SCSI Programming Interface, SCSI devices are limited
to SCSI IDs 0–6. The MegaRAID SCSI 320-2E Controller is
automatically assigned TID 7, which has the highest priority. Verify
that no two SCSI devices are set to the same TID. Change the TIDs
as needed. Refer to the SCSI device documentation if you are not
sure how to do this.
Step 7: Set SCSI Termination
The SCSI bus, which consists of connected SCSI cables and SCSI
devices, is an electrical transmission line that must be terminated
properly to minimize signal reflections and prevent data loss. Disk
enclosures normally handle termination for the SCSI devices in the
enclosure. Refer to your enclosure documentation for details.
Page 2
Quick Hardware Setup Guide
SCSI termination must be set at each end of the SCSI bus, as
shown in the following figure. In this example, only internal SCSI
devices are connected to the MegaRAID SCSI 320-2E Controller.
The MegaRAID SCSI 320-2E Controller automatically terminates its
end of the SCSI bus only if internal and external devices are
connected to the SCSI bus. It automatically disables termination if
both internal and external devices are connected to the bus,
because the MegaRAID SCSI 320-2E Controller is then in the
middle of the bus.

Step 9: Run the MegaRAID BIOS Configuration Utility
When the “Press <Ctrl><M>” message appears on the screen,
press <Ctrl><M> immediately to run the MegaRAID BIOS
Configuration Utility. Refer to the MegaRAID Configuration Software
User’s Guide on the MegaRAID Universal Software Suite CD for
details on how to run and use this program.
Step 10: Install the Operating System Driver
The MegaRAID SCSI 320-2E can operate under MS-DOS or any
DOS-compatible operating system using the standard AT BIOS INT
13h Hard Disk Drive interface. To operate with other operating
systems, you must install software drivers.
Termination on Controller
Enabled
SCSI Devices
(Termination Disabled on Both)
For a disk array, set SCSI bus termination so that removing or
adding a SCSI device does not disturb termination. To do this,
connect the MegaRAID SCSI 320-2E Controller to one end of the
SCSI cable and connect a SCSI terminator module at the other end
of the cable. Attach SCSI devices to the connectors between the
two ends, and disable termination on them. The following figure
shows an external drive enclosure with seven SCSI drives.
Termination is enabled at the end of the cable closest to the “last”
SCSI drive, which is assigned SCSI ID6.

SCSI Drives
The MegaRAID Universal Software Suite CD includes drivers for
the supported operating systems. You can view the supported
operating systems and download the latest drivers for RAID
adapters on the LSI Logic web site at
http://www.lsilogic.com/downloads/selectDownload.do.
Access the download center and follow the steps to download
the driver.
Refer to the MegaRAID Device Driver Installation User’s Guide on
the MegaRAID Universal Software Suite CD for details on installing
the driver. Be sure to use the latest Service Packs provided by the
operating system manufacturer and review the readme file that
accompanies the driver.
Supported RAID Levels
The MegaRAID SCSI 320-2E Controller supports disk arrays using
the following RAID levels:
ID 0
ID 1
• RAID 0 (Data striping): Data is striped across all disks in the
ID 2
ID 3
•
ID 4
ID 5
ID 6
Termination
Enabled
MegaRAID SCSI 320-2E
SCSI ID 7
•
Step 8: Power-Up the Computer
Replace the computer cover and connect the power cords to all
SCSI devices and to the computer. Turn on the power to all devices.
Be sure the SCSI devices are powered up before the computer or
at the same time as the computer. Otherwise, the computer may
not recognize the SCSI devices.
Observe the messages that appear during the boot process, until
you see the message:
•
•
array, enabling very fast data throughput. There is no data
redundancy. All data is lost if any disk fails. (1–30 disk drives)
RAID 1 (Disk mirroring): Data is written simultaneously to two
disks, providing complete data redundancy if one disk fails. The
array capacity is one-half of total disk space. (2 disk drives)
RAID 5 (Disk striping with distributed parity): Data is striped
across all disks in the array. Part of the capacity of each disk
stores parity information that reconstructs data if a disk fails.
Provides good data throughput for applications with high read
request rates. (3–30 disk drives)
RAID 10 (RAID 1 and RAID 0 in spanned arrays): Uses
mirrored pairs of disks to provide complete data redundancy.
Provides high data throughput rates. (4–28 disk drives)
RAID 50 (RAID 5 and RAID 0 in spanned arrays): Uses both
parity and disk striping across multiple disks to provide
complete data redundancy. Provides high data throughput rates.
(6–30 disk drives)
