RX3600 SAS controller



My rx3600 server has already got 2 X raid 1 Logical drive

I have added some more internal disks and trying to create 3rd RAID 1 logical drive using sasmgr, however it does not let me do that and says only two raid per HBA supported.

this is critical production and I have not been able try it from EFI (drvcfg) due to no downtime availibility.

Please suggest

> if its limitation? is there any HP docs which says that.

> any other way around to create the RAID.

Regards
RK

Re: RX3600 SAS controller

2 pairs of mirrored disks + optional hotspare

This is all this controller can do (see controller guide)


Now you can use LVM mirroring or consider to upgrade to P400 smart array controller.

Hope this helps!

Re: RX3600 SAS controller

It is mentioned here which says

"Only two IM volumes (plus a global hot spare) per controller can be created."

http://docs.hp.com/en/5900-0112/ch03s05.html#v1692274

This is what this 8 port SAS HBA can support.

The other options can be found in the quickspecs at http://h18000.www1.hp.com/products/quickspecs/12595_div/12595_div.HTML
