Intel Rapid Storage Controller raid 1 issue on Centos 6.5

Hi All,

I have purchased a Dell powerEdge T20 rack server recently with 1TB SATA and bought another SATA of 1TB too. I have tried to configure raid1 array with the Intel Rapid storage raid controller after enabling RAID ON mode in the configuration. Then I have installed Centos 6.5 from a bootable USB and changed the boot order to 'Intel Volume' (i.e harddisk boot). But after reboot a black screen appears and it shows as 'Hard disk error' . I have entered to the raid configuration utility by pressing CTRL + I and the raid array was showing as "Initialize" state. Then I have selected the ' reset to non RAID disks' options and booted Centos 6.5 from the hard disk, it has booted without any issues. What is the issue? is it because of driver supporting issues on Centos? Any ideas? Ideas appreciated.

Thank you!

Hello Vivekrh,

 

 

In regard to your concern, since you are using PowerEdge T20 Mini Tower Server from Dell you will need to confirm with their support for their RAID configuration compatibility and if they Support Linux system.

 

 

Also, you can confirm this details with Linux with compatible applications for RAID configuration.

Hi Angie,

Many thanks for your time. There isn't any drivers from Centos for IRST. I guess it is better for me to create a software raid rather than going for a 'Fake raid' with this IRST.

Thank you!

Hello Vivekrh,

 

 

At this moment in order to get the RST compatible drivers, you will need to confirm with the OS manufacturer (OEM) or the manufacturer of your device.
