HP ProLiant DL380 G9- RAID Reconfiguration

Dear All,

Good day

I've new DL380 G9 server with 5 SAS Disks (300GBX5) as Raid6.

Now I need to reconfigure the controller to make the following:

1st HDD+ 2nd HDD = Raid 1 to install WinServer on it.

3rd+4th+5th HDD= Raid 5 for Databases and other files.

Can you give me the steps to do that?

During POST when the controller firmware reports to the screen, you can press F5 to start SSA, or during POST press F10 and select SSA from the menu.  When in the SSA Application, you will need to clear the current configuration which will destroy all existing data.  Next create a new array, add the first and second drive to the array. Once that completes, create a second arrray and add the rest of the drives and select RAID 5
