Re: bl860c and sasmgr

The only way is to ignite the system (backup), create the RAID and restore the system. Data will be lost during the RAID config. No way around.

Hope this helps!

Re: bl860c and sasmgr

hello

1) first take a full ignite backup of the server in a Tape /Netwok on an ignite server.
2)reboot the system to access the EFI Shell.
3) from the EFI shell u can use the command drvcfg -s to access the RAID configuration menu and create the RAID as desired choosing the Disk.
note: u have to see the Documentation of the RAID card for what RAID level this supports.
4)Once RAID created u can Ignite install the OS onto the server from the IGnite Tape Backup that u have created or using the Net Archive as made in the Step1.
