Re: setting up raid 5 using 3 physical scsi discs

HI Aisha,

What is the exact Server Model? Are you refering to DL360 server?

DL360 Scsi server has only two HDD slots. Hence, Raid 5 can not be implemented with internal storage.

You can configure raid using HP ACU software which is integrated with smartstart CD.

thanks,
Aftab

excellent!

ML370 G5 comes with the following controllers

Base Models : HP Smart Array P400/256 MB Controller (RAID 0/1/1+0/5)

Available upgrades: 512 MB memory BBWC module for, or battery for battery-backed write cache (BBWC) RAID 0/1/1+0/5/6.

Performance Models : HP Smart Array P400/512 MB BBWC Controller (RAID 0/1/1+0/5/6)

Entry Models : HP Smart Array E200/64 MB Controller (RAID 0/1/1+0)

Available upgrades: 128 MB memory module for RAID 0/1/1+0/5, battery for battery-backed write cache (BBWC).

So Please check your server model as ML370 G5 Entry model which comes with HP Smart Array E200/64 MB BBWC does not support Raid 5 by default and you need to upgrade BBWC.
Part no. : 351580-B21 (128 MB BBWC (Battery-Backed Write Cache) Enabler)

else if you are just looking for utility to create Raid 5 then use ORCA (F8) during post or HP ACU from smartstart CD.

HP ACU guide :
http://h10032.www1.hp.com/ctg/Manual/c00709035.pdf

HP Smart Array P400/256 MB Controller (RAID 0/1/1+0/5) supports Raid 5 so shouldn't be any issue.

hope this helps,
Aftab
