Clearing Foreign Configurations

Clearing Foreign Configurations


A newly installed hard drive may already have a storage configuration (considered as foreign configuration). You can clear the foreign configuration from the hard drive on the Configuration Utility so that other RAID configuration can be applied on the hard drive.

If you replace a RAID controller card when a RAID array has been configured on the server, the RAID configuration will be considered as Foreign Configuration. If you clear external configurations, the RAID configuration will be lost. Exercise caution when doing this operation.


  1. Log in to the server through a remote virtual console and can manage the server on a real-time basis. Access the Configuration Utility main screen. For details, see Logging In to the Configuration Utility.
  2. Clear foreign configurations.

    If foreign configuration is detected, information shown in Figure 4-169 is displayed on the Configuration Utility screen.

    1. Click Clear.
    2. In the Logical View pane on the right of the Configuration Utility main screen, check the hard drive status.

      The hard drive status changes to Unconfigured Good.
