Break Hardware Mirror RX2660

Good Day....

I have a rx2660 server and i need to break the hardware mirror to have an extra disk. Unfortunately, i'm unable to break the mirror because i'cant see the smart array controller during bootup... Is there any other way to break the mirror?

Thank you and God Bless...

Do you really have a smartarray controller?

Please attach the output of

# ioscan -fn

Hope this helps!

Hi Samarah,

For breaking H/W mirror, you have to enter the EFI shell. As rx2660 has an Integrated Raid, you have to remove this RAID.

Check the following links for step by step procedure:
