Creating RAID 10

Creating RAID 10


  • Data on a hard drive will be deleted after the hard drive is added to a RAID array. Before creating a RAID array, check that there is no data on hard drives or the data on hard drives is not required. If the hard disk data needs to be retained, back up the data first.
  • The LSI SAS3008IR supports SAS/SATA HDDs and SSDs. Hard drives in one RAID array must be of the same type, but can have different capacities or be provided by different vendors.
  • RAID 0, 1, 10, and 1E lists the number of hard drives required by each RAID level.


  1. Back up data on hard drives and access the Configuration Utility main screen. For details, see Logging In to the Configuration Utility.
  2. Access the Create Configuration screen.

    1. On the main screen, select Controller Management and press Enter.
    2. Select Create Configuration and press Enter.

  3. Select a RAID level.

    1. Use and to select Select RAID Level and press Enter.

      The list of configurable RAID levels is displayed, as shown in Figure 6-32.

    2. Select RAID 10 and press Enter.

  4. Select member drives.

    1. Use and to select Select Physical Disks and press Enter.

      The hard drive selection screen is displayed, as shown in Figure 6-33. Table 6-12 describes the parameters on the screen.

      Table 6-12 Parameter description



      Selected RAID Level

      Displays a selected RAID level.

      Select Interface Type

      Selects an interface type. If the controller card controls hard drives of different interface types, you can use this parameter to filter the hard drives.

      Select Media Type

      Selects a hard drive type. If the controller card controls hard drives of different capacities, you can use this parameter to filter the hard drives.

      0:2:0 SAS HDD-512b 279GB

      Indicates a selectable hard drive.

      Check All

      Selects all listed hard drives.

      Uncheck All

      Deselects all hard drives.

    2. Select member drives by referring to Table 6-12.
      • A RAID 10 array can contain four, six, eight, or ten hard drives (even numbers).
      • If the total number of hard drives in all RAID arrays under a RAID controller card exceeds 14, no hard drive can be added to RAID arrays.

  5. Save the settings.

    1. Use and to select Apply Changes and press Enter.

      A confirmation screen is displayed, as shown in Figure 6-34.

    2. Use and to select Confirm and press Enter.
    3. Select Enabled and press Enter.
    4. Use and to select Yes and press Enter.

      The message "Operation completed successfully" is displayed.

    5. Press Enter.

      The configuration is complete.

  6. Check the configuration result.

    1. On the main screen, select Virtual Disk Management and press Enter.
    2. Select Manage Virtual Disk Properties and press Enter.

      Current RAID information is displayed.

After the RAID 10 array is created, the LSI SAS3008IR automatically starts a background initialization. The background initialization synchronizes data from the primary drive to the secondary drive. It does not affect the use of the RAID array but affects the performance.
