Dell EMC PowerEdge RAID Controller CLI Reference Guide


Controller profile commands

The PERC command line tool supports the following profile-related commands:

perccli /cx show profile
perccli /cx set profile profileid=<id>

The detailed description for each command follows.

perccli /cx show profile

This command shows current profile and profile properties.

Input example:

perccli /c1 show profile

perccli /cx set profile profileid=<id>

This command sets profile ID. The output contains control ID, status, and description attributes.

Input example:

perccli /c1 set profile profileid=<id>

NOTE: You must reboot the system for profile changes to take effect.

NOTE: Profile changes fail if:

  • The new profile supports fewer drives than the number of drives supported in the current topology.
  • Background operations (rebuild, copy back, full initialization, background initialization, patrol read, cc) are active.
  • Background operations start after profile change but before you reboot the system.
