PE 2900 III and raid, quick question

Jump to solution

Hello!

 

I have probly a simple question and just wanted to put this out here to resolve a problem of mine.

 

I have a PowerEdge 2900 with a SAS6IR Raid controller. (341-5700)

 

I would like to put a raid 5 onto 4 x 750gb HDs

I’ve looked in the controller card settings for info as well as the dell open manage program and can not find anything.

 

But the problem is all I can see is Raid 0 or Raid 1

Im fairly new to this sort of thing but now its just getting frustrating. Smiley Sad

 

Any help would be much appreciated

The SAS6iR can only do RAID 0 & 1, do have the RAID 5 you would need the PERC 6i.
