Dell PowerVault MD1000 troubleshooting and installation help: SAS.

I have 2 issues:

1) we have a PV MD1000 that should be configured on a RedHat server. How do I verify the installation and troubleshoot. It has 4 750 gig harddrives/7.2k RPM/Sata 3Gbps.

2) I am in the process of installing RedHat Enterprise 5 on a R905 2x Quad Core Opteron 83502Ghz server. I also need to install a Dell Power Vault MD1000. Where do I find the instructions on how to install the PV MD1000?

As you reply, please be aware that I am a Newbie.

Red Hat, or any linux is not like windows. Any distribution can be a server. If these servers are an important link in some chain or online, I would recommend you get hold of someone who knows what they are doing. There are a host of things that matter - partition sizes, logging levels, security, program versions, access, hard drive formats, backup, etc. Niobody writes instructions, because nobody except you knows your application.

Typically the base programs are installed along with a number of scripts specially written for the installation to automate tasks.
