Re: About my DS20 Server harddisk problem.

Logical Storage Manager (LSM) product can help you create software raid. Check out the manual: http://h30097.www3.hp.com/docs/base_doc/DOCUMENTATION/V51B_HTML/ARH9BDTE/TITLE.HTM

Re: About my DS20 Server harddisk problem.

AdvFS is a file system. LSM is a storage product. It provides abstraction above the device layer such that you can have software raid.

Once you create an LSM volume, it can be used like a disk for storage. For example, I can add this LSM volume to an existing AdvFS file system (just like I do with a disk partition).

As you are a first timer to this forum, I suggest you look at:
