I Want to install Cent OS 5 on IBM eseries x226


Hi Friends,

I have IBM Xseries 226 Server and I want to install Cent OS 5 on it with Raid1 Configuration I have to SCSI Hard Disk and in BIOS SATA RAID is Enable.How can I Install Cent OS with RAID1 Configuration.Is there any SCSI RAID or SATA RAID Configuration is missing?
IF anyone has solution about my quarry please reply to me.

Do you have any idea about how to configure RADI1 on IBM x226 for CENT OS Operating System.I have IBM Server support guide CD but officially it is not supported for Cent OS.I am able to create RAID1 on Windows Server2003 and its worked fine but not succeeded in Cent OS.The RAID configured during Windows Installation recognized during Cent OS installation but after Successful installation it is not load OS just a black Screen appear and No operating system is found error displayed.So I formatted both my drive in SCSI utility (IBM Motherboard Utility) so it become normal Drive now(Without RAID Configuration) I also Able to Install and boot from Cent OS but it is without RAID Configuration.I want to create Hardware Raid Level 1 configuration on that machine.Please reply me for appropriate solution about it.

Thanks Again

Thanks...

A few things come to mind:
  • CentOS 5 is VERY old...the latest is 6.5, so if you're going to load CentOS, load the latest version.
  • If you already have a hardware RAID controller, you configure the RAID array THERE...it presents the arrays as physical drives to whatever OS you load. The OS never knows how the drives are configured...you could have five drives presenting as one...and the OS will only see the 'one drive'.
  • Read the manuals that came with your IBM server, or contact IBM support if you have questions about configuring a RAID array on the system

Again:
  • CentOS 5 is OLD. Load the latest version
  • Contact IBM support if you're having trouble configuring a RAID array.
You don't say what kind of controller you have in this server, but AGAIN, RAID arrays are configured on the CONTROLLER, not in the OS, unless you have a 'fake' RAID controller. Hardware RAID controllers define the array in BIOS, and present one disk to the OS, whatever it is.
