1 Understanding the Array Software
Adaptec AHA-398x adapters use the following programs to create and manage arrays:
■
The Adaptec Initial Array Configuration Utility,
which runs under DOS. Use this utility to create
an initial bootable array to use as a boot device.
(After arrays are created, they run under
NetWare.)
■
The Adaptec Array Driver Copy Utility, which
runs under DOS. Use this utility to copy DOS and
NetWare drivers to your computer’s hard disk.
■
The Administrator Utility, which runs under
NetWare. Use this utility to create, modify, and
manage arrays.
You can find these programs on the Adaptec Initial
Array Configuration Utility and AHA-3980/3985 Drivers and RAID Utilities disks included with each
AHA-398x adapter.
We recommend that you use the Adaptec Initial
Array Configuration Utility to create the first array
on a new server only if you want to boot from that
array. Then install NetWare and the required drivers, as described in the AHA-3980/3980W/3985/
3985W User’s Guide, and use the Administrator Utility to create and manage other arrays. If you do not
need to boot the server from an array, install
NetWare and use only the Administrator Utility to
create and manage arrays.
2 Selecting Menu Options
There are two ways to select menu options in the
AHA-398x utility programs:
■
■
If the option name includes a hot key—a light blue
character in color monitors, and a gray character
in monochrome monitors—type the hot key. In
this guide, hot keys are underlined in the option
name. In the Display Array Status option, for
example, the hot key is D.
Press the ↑ and ↓ keys to highlight the option, and
then press Enter.

3 Initial Array Configuration Utility
Follow these steps to create the first array with the
Adaptec Initial Array Configuration Utility. For
more detailed information on all Adaptec Initial
Array Configuration Utility options, see the
AHA-3980/3980W/3985/3985W User’s Guide.
1 Make a bootable copy of the Adaptec Initial Array
Configuration Utility diskette.
2 Insert the diskette copy in the A drive and boot
the computer.
3 When the computer has finished booting, type
a:arconfig and press Enter.
4 From the Main menu, select Add New Array. The
Selection List menu appears.
5 Press Enter to define Array #1.
6 Select the array type (e.g., Mirrored).
If you select RAID5 or RAID0, a prompt asks if
you want to make the array convertible between
RAID 5 and RAID 0.
7 Type the number of drives (excluding spares) you
want in the array, and press Enter.
8 Press Tab to select an adapter channel and display its drives.
9 Select each disk for the array by pressing the ↑
and ↓ keys to highlight the disk name, and then
pressing Enter or Ins.
Caution: If you choose disks that contain
data, all the data will be lost when you format the array. A warning message appears if
you select a disk that contains partition
information.
To select disks on a different adapter channel,
repeat steps 7 and 8. To deselect the most recently
selected disk, press Del. (All disks in the array
must be connected to the same AHA-398x adapter.)

When you have selected the number of disks you
specified in step 7, the next screen appears.
10 If the array is mirrored or RAID 5 and at least one
disk is unassigned, a prompt asks whether you
want to choose a spare disk:
If you do not want a spare: Type n.
To select a spare: Type y. If prompted for the number
of spares, type the number (1 or 2), and press Enter.
Then follow steps 8 and 9 to select the spares.
Note: A spare must have at least the capacity
of the smallest disk in the array.
11 When you are prompted, select a formatting
method to initialize the new array.
– Low-level format is a lengthy process that
writes a consistent pattern to the disks and
checks the disk surface for defects.
– Initialize the array with zeroes (recommended method) is faster than low-level formatting, but it does not verify the integrity of
the disks.
Caution: Back up the disks first if they contain data you want to keep! Low-level formatting or initializing an array erases all
data on the array disks.
12 When you are prompted, select a block size for
the array. The recommended size is 16 KBytes.
13 When the prompt appears, confirm that you want
to format the array.
14 When you see the message Initialization of
Array #1 is complete, press any key to return to
the Main Menu.
15 Press Esc, and reboot the computer when you see
the prompt.

4 Array Driver Copy Utility
The Adaptec Array Driver Copy Utility is on the
AHA-3980/3985 Drivers and Raid Utilities diskette
included with the AHA-398x adapter. You use this
utility to copy DOS and NetWare drivers to your
hard disk drive. These drivers are required to operate arrays under NetWare. You need the DOS drivers if you want to install NetWare or other software
from a SCSI CD-ROM drive connected to your
AHA-398x adapter.
See the AHA-3980/3980W/3985/3985W User’s Guide
for instructions on how to use the Adaptec Array
Driver Copy Utility to install these drivers.

Follow these steps to reconstruct data on a replacement disk if a disk fails in a mirrored or RAID 5 array
and no spare disk is available. (If a spare is available,
the spare replaces the failed disk and the data is
reconstructed automatically.):
1 Physically replace the failed disk, if necessary.
Note: If your drive enclosure requires all host
adapter activity to stop while you replace a
drive, select Hot Swap Pause before you
replace the drive. When you have finished,
press any key to resume SCSI bus activity.
2 From the Main menu for the array, select
Reconstruct Functions.
3 Select the reconstruction option you want. If the
array is mirrored, for example, select Re-mirror
Single Drive or Re-mirror all DOWN Drives.

the operation.
To schedule a reconstruction, see Scheduling Tasks on
page 8.
Note: If you used Hot Swap Pause to stop
SCSI bus activity, resume activity by pressing any key at the Administrator Utility
screen.
Reactivating an Off-line Array
An array goes off-line if the power fails or if someone
removes a second disk when one has already been
removed. To reactivate an off-line array:
1 Physically correct the problem that caused the
array to go off-line.
2 From the Main menu for the array, select
Reactivate Off-line Array.
3 When prompted, type y to reactivate the array, or
n to cancel the operation.
Reactivating a Spare Disk
If a disk fails in an array that has spares, a spare is
automatically activated and the failed disk is marked
Down. When you replace the failed disk with a new
disk drive at the same channel and SCSI ID, the
replacement disk becomes the new spare. To reactivate the new spare:
1 From the Main menu for the array, select
Reactivate Spare Disk.
2 Select the spare you want to reactivate.
3 When prompted, type y to reactivate the spare, or

6 When prompted, type y to accept the new spare
disks, or n to reselect the disks.
You need not reformat the array.
Deleting a Spare Disk
To delete a spare disk from an array, select the Delete
Spare command from the Configuration menu. If the
array has two spares, first select the spare you want
to delete. Type y when the prompt asks you to confirm the deletion.
Initializing Arrays
When you create a new array or redefine disks (other
than spares) in an existing array, you are automatically
prompted to initialize the array. You can choose to lowlevel format the array or initialize it with zeros. (For a
brief description of both formatting methods, see
page 3.)
If necessary, you can reinitialize an existing array if
the data on the array has become corrupted. To do
this, follow the directions in the AHA-3980/3980W/

Converting between RAID 0 CVT and RAID 5 CVT
Formats
You can convert a RAID 5 CVT array to a RAID 0
CVT array and back again without loss of data and
without reformatting. If you convert a RAID 5 CVT
array with spares to a RAID 0 CVT array, the RAID 0
CVT array retains the spares, but they are not usable.
When you convert the array back to a RAID 5 CVT
array, the spares can again be used.
To convert between formats, follow these steps:
1 From the Main menu for the array, select Convert
RAID Level.
2 Select Convert to RAID0 CVT or Convert to
RAID5 CVT.
3 Indicate the priority by typing a number from 0
through 9 (0 assigns the lowest priority; 9, the
highest).
4 When prompted, type y to continue; otherwise,
type n.
To cancel a conversion while it is under way, follow
step 1 to display the Convert menu and then select
Abort Convert.
Deleting Arrays
Caution: Before you delete an array, back up
any data you want to keep. When you delete
an array, all array data will be lost!
Follow these steps to delete an array:
1 From the System menu, select Change Array
Configuration.
2 Select Delete an Array.
3 Select the array you want to delete.
4 When prompted, type y to delete the array, or n to
cancel the operation.
