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?

Switching from 'Mirrored' to 'Striping'?

I don't understand your description. sorry. But if you are switching over from Mirror to stripping then you will surely loose your files. Switching raid configuration will also redo the hard drive relativity and will reformat the drives automatically. If your backup is a server then you need to go to system bios and configure the raid from there. I suggest backup the backups first before you do it. If your backup is an external hard drive then go to its http settings and configure it there. It will surely format your drive.

Different RAID configuration?


The first point to note is that this unit does not support more than 1.6TB total disk. (4 x 400GB drives) This is stated in the manual which is on the CD that came with the unit. You cannot configure a mix of RAID1 and Linear (JBOD) drives, so you plan will not work.

Speed of 1T Raid


I’m not about to pay for support on a brand new product. If the company won’t respond to my request for input, I’ll simply return the raid for credit.
