Re: Check the setting

Just run fdisk -l command, if you see only one disk of the same capacity, then almost sure you are using a hardware RAID.

To be sure, download an utility from the IBM page to configure the array controller.

Re: Check the setting

Hi,

Check the output of "dmesg".

That will hopefully give some clue as to what the underlying hardware configuration is.

Cheers,
