Scenarios

The Configuration Utility is embedded in the controller BIOS and independent of the OS. It allows simple setting and management of RAID properties.

Impact on the System

Before accessing the Configuration Utility main screen, you need to restart the server, which will interrupt services running on the server.

Procedure

  1. Set the LEGACY mode. For details, see Setting the Legacy Mode.
  2. During server startup, press Ctrl+C when prompted.

    "Please wait, invoking SAS Configuration Utility" is displayed.

    After the system self-check, the Configuration Utility main screen is displayed, as shown in Figure 5-5.

    To view the global properties of the controller card, press Alt+N on this screen.
