Configure BL460-RAID1 with 2 logical drives

Job script order details:

1. Run Script Deploy System Config
2. Power Control [Reboot]
3. Run script Deploy Array Configuration
4. Power Control [Reboot]
5. Run Script Deploy system config
6. Distribute img .\lib\images\ntfs.img
7. ..
8. ..

The std script above gives a Windows OS on 1 partition. I like to change the config to have an OS with 2 drives. Is step #3 the only thing i need to modify? If so, how do i go about doing it. I should add that i found the ini file i assume that is used to control the partition process, but not sure the right syntax.

Re: Configure BL460-RAID1 with 2 logical drives

No, this cant be correct for 2 logical drives, because you have only 2 Disks and you create a RAID 1 -> 1 Logical Drive.

You have to differ between "Logical Drive" and "Partition". You can create many Partitions on one Logical Drive.

I would recommend you to create ONE Logical Drive on a 460C (RAID 1) and adjust your "Distribute Disk Image" Job to create the first Partition with 50% DiskSpace.
Then you can create a second Partition in Windows after the Deploying ;-)

Re: Configure BL460-RAID1 with 2 logical drives

We create one array with the two disks. Then create 2 logical drives as a raid 1 sets dividing the 2x72g drives in to two 36g partitions. This is done fron the smartstart disk or with RDP. We use RDP 3.60 and this is the script we use for the p400 with 2x72g sas drives.
