This chapter provides instructions for creating and configuring RAID, and installing the necessary drivers for different system components...

Page 116

RAID 1RAID 1RAID 1RAID 1RAID 1 (Data mirroring) copies and maintains an identical image of data from one drive to a second drive... If one drive fails, the disk array management software directs all applications to the surviving drive as it contains a complete copy of the data in the other drive... This RAID configuration provides data protection and increases fault tolerance to the entire system... Use two new drives or use an existing drive and a new drive for this setup... The new drive must be of the same size or larger than the existing drive...

Page 117

You can create a RAID set using the utility embedded in the RAID controller... For example, you can use the Adaptec RAID Conf igurat ionAdaptec RAID Conf igurat ionAdaptec RAID Conf igurat ionAdaptec RAID Conf igurat ionAdaptec RAID Conf igurat ion Ut i l i ty Ut i l i ty Ut i l i ty Ut i l i ty Ut i l i ty if you installed SATA hard disk drives on the SATA connectors supported by the Intel 6300ESB Southbridge...
