    Manage RAID in Windows

    popsovy@hotmail.com

      I have a box with Intel C600 Series Chipset SATA RAID Controller. Three RAID 1s were configured at built time and Windows 2008 Server was installed on one of the RAID1 pair. The box has been functioning as a production SQL Server for the past 6 months.

       

      I would like to view/manage this machine's RAID configuration from Windows. What software do I need to install?

       

      I looked into Intel RST and Matrix Storage Manager but I am still not sure. If I open the link for RST Support for the Intel® Rapid Storage Technology (Intel® RST) and then go to the Latest Downloads I am presented with a list of software, most of which end with the word "RAID driver". Is that going to give me access to a Windows app for managing RAID or is it just the driver? If the latter, what's the download for the app?

       

      The Matrix downloads seem to be all very old -- the latest is from 2009.

       

      Thanks a lot for your help.
