The RH2288 V3 works with the LSISAS3108RAID
card. After the hard disk is replaced, the cache of the RAID controller card is
not cleared. As a result, creating RAID with the new disk fails. The error
message is as follows: Virtual drive creation failed!
Upon restarting, launch the RAID controller card configuration screen, select
the RAID card, use the left or right arrow key to select VD Mgmt. Then,
press F2 to display the drop-down menu, and select ManagePreserved Cache.
Choose Manage Preserved Cache, select DISCHARD CACHE, and click YES to clear the cache.
Go back to the RAID controller card configuration page and create RAID. RAID is
successfully created. No error message is displayed and the hard disk status is
1. Locate the
fault. If hard disks cannot be used to create RAID when the SAS3108RAID RAID
controller card is used, locate the cause of the RAID creation failure.
2. If the hard disk is faulty, replace the
hard disk. If the hard disk is normal, check whether the hard disk is in Buzy
state. If yes, change Locate to Stop.
3. If the fault persists,
check whether the cache of the RAID controller card is cleared. If yes, clear the cache by
performing the preceding operations.
configuration screen of the LSI SAS3108 RAID controller card is different from
that of the LSISAS2208 RAID controller card. However, the working principles
are similar. A RAID can be created using new hard disks only after the cache of
the RAID controller card is cleared (DISCHARD CACHE). For the LSI SAS2208 RAID
controller card, this can be done by directly choosing the Manage Preserved
Cache menu. For the LSI SAS3108 RAID controller card, you need to choose
the VD Mgmt menu and then press F2 on the keyboard to display the
drop-down menu and choose Manage Preserved Cache.
