RX 3600 SAS card

I have RX 3600 with 4 populated disk having 2 X RAID 1. NOw I need to add 2 more disk.

 

As per the quick Specs docs it states a maximum of 5 disk with 2 X RAID1 and 1 hostspare can be created.

My queries is Can I add new disk without RAID 1 with same card without adding new SAS or smart array card?

 

This server is for testing and data is not critical so I want to add disk space without adding new SAS/Smartarray card.

 

Appreciate any help.

Regards,
Syed

Re: RX 3600 SAS card

The controller is limited to 2 pairs of mirrored disks, but you can add more disks without RAID.


Hope this helps!

Re: RX 3600 SAS card

insert the disk and run ioscan. You will see the disk and now you can configure it for use with LVM.


Hope this helps!
