Raid details for ibm x server


Using redhat linux 4 update 5

can anyone guide me to find out the raid details of a server.

I have a machine which is a t remote site.
i thing all the disk slots are populated but only two disks are used.
I can see those two disks presented as a volume to my operating system.

I would like to confirm if the other disks are there or not

Appreciate your time

Thanks

You can't. You have to reboot the server and press the key combo that appears on screen to enter your RAID card config menus. Or on some models, you have to boot from the ServeRAID CD.

1) Download ibm_sw_srapp_9.00-16996_anyos_32-64.iso from the ibm site
2) go to linux/manager (or which ever OS folder)
3) install RaidMan-9.20-16996.i386.rpm
4) /usr/RaidMan/arcconf GETCONFIG 1 AL ( This will give all the details of the controller and disks
