Question about IBM ServeRAID-7k Controller (71p8642) SCSI Controller
IBM X 3650 M2 server with two 146 GB harddisk
I have manually configured RAID 1 configuration on this server. I check the number of devices in /dev directory after Linux installation. It is showing output as
sda, sdb, sdc
In actual it should show me only one disk 'sda'. due to this my installation script is failing.
I am installing Linux 5.2 kickstart.
I am seeking help on this

best thing about this new service is that you are never placed on hold and get to talk to real repairmen in the US.
the service is completely free and covers almost anything you can think of (from cars to computers, handyman, and even drones).

SOURCE: Raid configuration
When your system boots up you should see an option to access your raid controller if not or if your system doesn't see the controller at all you will have to download the utility software from IBM, but you need to be careful any change you make in the configuration of the disks will delete all data on your drives. This is non-recoverable loss. The utility has help and is fairly easy to understand.

SOURCE: Raid Failure
Hi, There is no chance of raid failure unless more that 1 HDD (2 or more) on Raid 5 member fail . You can replace Raid Controller if the part is faulty . Yet there is no chance of loosing data . So check if it is a Hdd fault or Raid Controller fault .
