Accelerator ratio

Accelerator ratio

We have configured RAID 5, but when we the option for changing the accelerator ratio is not there. It is enabled but fixed at 100%Read / 0%write. The help says it might be configured as Online Recovery Server. But we have not configured so, how do we verify whether it has been configured as online recovery server or not. The operating system name that used to come is also not displayed.

Re: Accelerator ratio

To configure your system as an Online Recovery Server requires specialized hardware to be installed--my guess by your question is that you haven't...

Which controller are you using? If you're using a 431/221/SL or Integrated Smart Controller, there's no option for setting write cache because it's read-only cache. To get write cache you'll need to upgrade to the 3200/4200/5300 Smart2 controllers...
