As marked in red, it's said configured as "Fault Tolerance: 1+0". However, it seems there are only 2 mirror group (Mirror Group0/1).

As my understanding, Raid 1+ 0 , Should there be 6 mirror group (Raid 1) and the strip togetter (Raid 0)?


Mirror group1: phy1 - Phy2

Mirror group2: phy3 - Phy4

Mirror group3: phy5 - Phy6

Mirror group4: phy7 - Phy8

Mirror group5: phy9 - Phy10

Mirror group6: phy11 - Phy12


Is my understanding right? Or we just have wrong configuration?

Re: Smart Array setup: 1+0 or 0+1

According the Controller Reference Guide drives are mirrored in pairs. So my understanding of the mirror groups is, that two drives, one from each mirror group, are mirrored and all mirror paires are striped.

Thanks Patrick. 


You mean, for example

Phy1 mirror with Phy7,

Phy2 mirror with Phy8,
