Hi Jav,

You can use smart array cd for creating raid device.

Basic steps to create RAID 5 array as follows.

You should have minimum 3 disk for RADI 5 array creation. You will get (n-1) disk capacity, where n is the number of disks.

You have to do,

1) select the disks from the scanned list.

2) select the array type ( if more than 2 disks are there then RAID 5 will be active) from available options ( RAID5, RAID 0, RAID1, RAID10 etc..)

3) Select the block size.. ( default will be 64K). you can select depends on the application recommendation.

4) Select the Write Policy ( Write back/ Write Through). Write back should be enabled only, if you have a BBU ( Battery Backup unit ) in RAID Controller.

5) Read Policy ( Normal / Read Ahead).

6) RAID Initialize Mode ( Quick/ Rebuild)

Hope This will help you to conclude...

Regards,

Shameer
