Hi,

From your EFI, type in: drvcfg, look for your current array, delete it and then create a RAID 0 array.

Check this chapter 3 of this manual: http://docs.hp.com/en/J6369-90045/J6369-90045.pdf

Sandy

Thanks for the Reply.........if I break the RAID 1 from drvcfg and dont make the RAID 0 Install is it possible that I can install OS on one disk and Oracle Apps on another disk.

After you delete the mirror you should be able to treat the two mechs as JBODs (Just a Bunch Of Discs).

If this were a SmartArray you would have to create single-mech logical discs. I've not run drvcfg before to know if you need to do anything similar after breaking the mirror, but would think that the manual referenced aught to describe it at least indirectly.
