RAID Configuration S-ATA MSA20 U3206i Contrller

Sorry my english is not so good. i have to install a new raid for our msa20. there is a u3206i controller inside. i have to build the raid online. (without rebooting the server) how could i do this? i read the documentations from hp. they wrote that i would be able to do this with cpqacuxe. on the server the cpqacuxe-7.15-21 is installed but when i access the hp management page the is no point where i can choose the array configuration utility. do you have a tip how i can configure the raid without booting the server?

I am trying to install SBS 2011 (Win Server 2008 R2 OS) on an IBM x3400. I have created a Raid 1 (mirrored) array. When partitioning the RAID to install we get the message "Windows cannot be installed...


A few questions:

1. Is this a new (clean) install? If so, have you installed the drivers for the RAID controller BEFORE you install the os? Most of the time Windows will ask for this as the os check your sysem. (You will see at the bottom of the screen "if you have a 3rd party controller and need to install drivers, do so now" or something to this effect.

2. If you already have an os on this system, (Server 2008) you may need to check the the HCL for SBS 2011 to make sure you hardware is correct for the install.

Good Luck

The Dell 2950 Server we have cannot reboot the disc drives


The raid may be fine you need to reinstall the OS.
The best way is to drop the raid array astablish a new raid array then install you new OS on a new raid array.Very nice server you have.

download servicepack three for the latest sata and raid drivers. until you get the driver for the new raid drive, windows wont see it. you can also put ubuntu as a second op sys from inside windows, and it should work in ubuntu. if it does than its a driver issue. this should update the pb drivers, the device itself doesnt require one to work in xp, so it must be the computer that is the issue.....try updating your sata and raid drivers for the controller that came on the PB

Can´t find my SATA-disk....


I'm sorry to say buddy but I checked ... Then checked some more, and I can't see anything about your motherboard supporting SATA-II. If you look about you should find a jumper setting on your HDD to limit it to SATA-I, which is about half the speed of sata-ii but I'm almost promising it will work.

Let me know if this solves it, If not I can find the jumper settings for you, But seeing as though you just bought it you should have a manual.

RAID 0 on Asus motherboard


Hi macjax,

I agree Asus wasn't using their noodle when they came up with that one. With the JMicron Controller your sort of forced to use an external for raid. But getting another Raid controller is simple. I like High Point Rocket Raid, and it's simple to install and setup. HERE's a link to there site. The main reason that they should be using an external is for hotswapability. But for some reason JMicron wanted to allow for more drives. Can you image having for external drives!!! Crazy.

Anyway, if you get another controller card, you'll go through needing to load the drivers and change Bios to accept them, and at the same time you can disconnect the JMicron raid. As far as speed is concerned, you're still on the SATA platform, I find no difference on speed unless you have two drives of different sizes.

Good Luck

Mark

Raid JMB363 RAID BIOS UTILITY


The P5K motherboard has a four port vanilla ICH9. There
Is no RAID on the Intel, when the chip has only four ports?
So S1, S2, S3, S4 are not RAID.

In the P5K manual, the RAID function exists on the Jmicron
Controller. One drive connector is internal (SATA_E2, on the
Left of the motherboard picture in the manual), and one
Drive connector is external (F_ESATA on the back I/O area).
This is not convenient for building a RAID0. (The intent is
To allow making RAID1 backup disks.) You'll have to snake
The SATA cable back into the computer, if you hope to use
It with two internal SATA disks.

The manual has full instructions for setting up RAID on the
Jmicron JMB363. The manual says to set the Jmicron to RAID
Mode in the BIOS. Two disks must be connected, in order to
Be able to press <control-J> at the start of the BIOS, to
Enter the Jmicron RAID setup in the BIOS. At that point, you
Can declare an array in the BIOS setup.

Then, when Windows is installing from the Microsoft install CD,
You’ll need to press F6 and offer the Jmicron RAID driver.

Section 5.5 of the Asus manual, describes how to make
A RAID driver floppy. The application in the mother board cd is available for make drivers disk
