Re: raid dl 380 server

Hi,

It sounds like you need to set up three RAID-1 logical drives.

Use one for /, /var, /home, /usr and then one for /data1 and one for /data2

As you would appear to be trying to install Linux of some form, then you don't need to use SmartStart. Just hit F8 when the server's booting to get into the Array Configuration Utility, to configure things as you require.

Hope this helps,

Regards,

Rob
