Configure RAID 1

I have a box HP Proliant DL 360 G3. There are 2 SCSI disks installed on it. When I ran Array Configuration Utility 7.80.6.0, it only showed RAID 0. How can I configure RAID 1 (mirror)? I perfer hardware raid if possible. Thanks. Ian

Re: Configure RAID 1

hi YZ

do you have 5i Controller?

what do you get if you try making the RAID level during POST pressing F8 when the controller shows up?

same result just Raid 0?

Re: Configure RAID 1

Yes, I have 5i Controller.

When F8, there are only 3 options:

1. Create logical drive
2. View logical drive
3. Delete logical drive.

When select option 2, the controller shows 2 Logical drives RAID 0 in there.

Re: Configure RAID 1

Do you mean to delete both drives? If I delete one of them, the Windows OS installed will be gone?

Re: Configure RAID 1

hi

ok ok now things are clearer I thought you were creating the RAID 1 during a fresh installation

so what you want to do is called migration RAID 0 -> RAID 1

do you get that option on ACU? migrate?
Migrate a logical drive

follow the steps here how to do it, page 25

Re: Configure RAID 1

Yes, migration RAID 0 -> RAID 1 is what I need but in ACU, I only has RAID 0.
