Team,

 

I am unable to get adg option while configuring raid. I am configruing thru ORCA. How to get raid adg option as i had got 8 hdd. The controller is p400 raid controller. Pls help me out. Thanks in advance.

 

At the same i got a hint that thry ORCA it is not possible to configure raid ADG it should be done thru ACU, is it correct if so pls letme know the procedure of running ACU. there is  no Os installed presently in server.

 

Server model rx2660 part no: AH234A

Re: rx2660 Raid ADG configuration

Do you have the Battery Backed Write Cache (BBWC) installed on the controller?  It appears that you must have that in order to have the RAID 6 ADG capability.

 

 

 

From the "HP Smart Array P400 Controller" overview web page:

http://h18000.www1.hp.com/products/quickspecs/12400_div/12400_div.HTML

Addition of the battery backed cache upgrade enables BBWC, RAID 6 with ADG, array expansion, logical drive extension, RAID migration, and stripe size migration.

upgraded the controller firmware to 7.22 even though i could not get raid option. Earlier i used to see that option but after removing the logical drivers and want to configure freshly the option raid adg is missing.
