My IBM Type is 7870 which looks like this:

Raid 1 allows us Mirroring:

  • Minimum  2 Disks.
  • good performance ( there are not striping or parity).
  • Good redundancy.
  • Waste disk.

 

Ok, so let’s start,

In this specific type of server, we have to boot the raid configuration using “Ctrl + C” opposite to HP “F8”, The system which manages my raid configuration called “LSI Corp configuration”

The first step is to break the existing raid configuration:

Press Enter

And now we need to create our raid so let’s carry on with “Raid Properties” selection:

There are three possibilities:

IM Volume – a situation that two disks both of them mirroring data, for example, type PELEGIT? It will write on the second disk as well

IME Volume – create a situation that 3 disks with “Hot Spare”

IS Volume – Striping, which means if you type “PELEGIT” so the first part “PELE” will write on the first disk and the rest “GIT” will write on the second disk,

I am selecting on – IM Volume
