Raid Configuration

Can anyone tell me where I can get instructions on how to configure Three Sun 4GB drives on a Sun 450 Server as a raid 5 array??

RE: Raid Configuration

Are you using Volume manager?

RE: Raid Configuration

Yes I am. I am just unclear how I can reconfigure the server to see Raid 5 after I have installed the OS. I appreciate any help you can offer.

RE: Raid Configuration

I am not sure you will get the root disk to perform raid5, since the volume manager encapsulates the unix file system said down by the install process. I believe the best you can do with the root disk at that point is a simple mirroring. However, any subsequent data disks added with the vaolume manager can be defined how ever you like.

RE: Raid Configuration

Right on the money!!! I ended up generating a Case w/ Sun Support, and that is just what they told me.

Thanks for your Help!!!!
