    Reconfigure LSI Virtual Drives - ISIS 5000

     Hello

    I got an ISIS 5000 system without any data, but the LSI config was cleared and all the drives are showing up as “Unconfigured Good” in LSI MegaRaid.

    I want to re-install that system, but when I tried to configure it using the ISIS install, or using the RaidConfig.exe –I – I get a message saying that the Installer is expecting for 3xRaid 5 Virtual Drives +hot spare in order to do the “burn-in”.

    Is there an automatic way of creating the virtual drives? I don’t mind creating them by myself in the LSI MegaRaid, but I’m just want to make sure that I got all the settings correct – as I need to configure all kind of stuff regarding Read Ahead, Cache, BBM etc.

     

    Thanks!!

    This KB Deleting ISIS 5000/5500 Raid Set has the details on how to rebuild the RAID. There is a typo that I've asked to be fixed. For ISIS v4.5 and up it should read: enter RaidConfig.exe -c.

    Thanks Bob,

    I can confirm that RaidConfig.exe -c worked.

     

    Thanks!!
