Thread: how to install openSUSE 11.4 on a Dell R610 with raid1 ?

  1. #1

    Question how to install openSUSE 11.4 on a Dell R610 with raid1 ?

    hello susers !

    i have here a DELL R610 Server with 4x 1TB.

    The Server goes with following specification:

    2x 1TB as Raid1 (OS, Boot, swap, home)
    2x 1TB as Raid1 (Fileshares & postgreSQL DB)


    The Dell Server has the 700er Raidcontroller in it.

    I have all harddrives in the server. 2 are recognized from openSUSE, the other 2 not.

    Do i have to install the second raid with a separate driver ? I'm confused, because i am relatively new with RAID under Linux.......

    Thanks for any help, how to install openSUSE 11.4 on this machine with 2x 1TB Raid1......

    I found the Raid Configurator CTRL+R at booting leads me into the PERC H700 Raidcontroller Bios. I can create my Raids.

    But my questions about the configuration of openSUSE 11.4 is still open.

    Plz answer me to this question. Thanks

    Tough one, most of us use software raids.

    I'm not sure the question I guess ... if you create the RAID volumes with the RAID BIOS, and you reboot the system (which I think you will be required to do), can you see all of the RAID volumes with the installation program now?

    My server has a Dell PERC adapter in it, and I had no trouble with it seeing my drives after I had created the volumes in the RAID BIOS.
    Main Machine: Dell G7 running Ubuntu 18.04
    Server: Dell PowerEdge SC1430 running CentOS 7.x

    Hi all !

    Yes you are completely right Katanabc. I did it wrong. I moved to the DELL BIOS and i created there my raids....... After a reboot, openSUSE was recognizing my raids. I dont want a software raid because i have a PERC 700 in my dell.

    So its working now..... but i have another big problem... today, i startet my fresh new dell server: No keyboard to login bwoahaha.... cannot believe it... i postet another thread in the german forums here.... Failsafe is working. i have a keyboard there.....anyway.

    thank you for your help. it helped me
