Why can you NOT use the current in the old legacy support operating system --- RHEL 5.11 ?
( the current is RHEL 7.0 )

According to this:

http://h20566.www2.hp.com/portal/sit...4892.199480143

That model comes with a onboard raid controller.

So, I guess you just go to the bios and configure your RAID set there. After that you can install RHEL.

So, have you set up the hardware RAID? You can download a SmartStart CD from HP which will allow you to configure the hardware RAID, version 8.7 might do. Unfortunately... you now need a support contract with HP to allow the download
The ML370 G6 has a SmartArray 410i. The configured RAID disk(s) will show as /dev/cciss0, /dev/ccissn, dependent on the number of volumes created, when installing RedHat

Thanks for your reply, As configuring hardware raid there is no need configuring software raid during RHEL 5.6 installation?

If you've got HW RAID, there's no need for SW RAID as well (usually).

Just make sure you know how to maintain the HW RAID; get the HP Suppt RPMS, install & read-up how to use them.

The hardware RAID is totally independent of whatever operating system you are using. It's usually set up using the bootable SmartStart Utility CD/DVD. I think you can also access the ACU (Array Configuration Utility) during POST (Power-on-self-test) BEFORE it gets to F9 to access the BIOS. (Watch the POST messages!)
The SmartStart CD/DVD also contain diagnostics to check the operation of the server.

There's no need to use a software RAID. Note that a hardware RAID presents NO operating overhead to the server whereas a software RAID uses the server's processor(s), memory and I/O subsystem to maintain the RAID. In a Hardware RAID, all this work is done by the RAID controller, the Operating System only sees the RAID volumes, not the individual disks.
