Anybody knows how we can clarify disks and h/w mirroring from EFI shell on BL860/890ci2 servers with no OS installed.

The controller firmware bundle (and the IPF offline diag CD has it too) has a utility called "saupdate" that can read the mode.

> saupdate get_mode

if you see "RAID mode" the disks are mirrored.

Hope this helps!

Not supported? Who tells?


However, HBA mode means no RAID.

Hope this helps!

hi Torsten,
When I type SHELL>saupdate , it gives error that its not a recognized command. How can change HBA mode to RAID mode?

As said in the first post, this command is NOT built-in, you need to get it!

The firmware update package has an instruction included.

Hope this helps!
