    Two sets of RAID on DP55WB

    ophir

      Is it possible to create two different RAID arrays on the DP55WB, i.e. one RAID0 from two drives and another RAID1 from two other drives?

          yes it is. read the documentation for further instructions.

            I read the documentation, but it does not specify how many arrays of RAID can be created.

            Quote:

            1. Upon re-boot, you will see the following Intel Matrix Storage Manager option ROM
            status message on the screen: Press <Ctrl-I> to enter the RAID
            Configuration Utility. Press <Ctrl-I> and enter the RAID Configuration Utility.
            2. In the Intel Matrix Storage Manager option ROM Main Menu, select option #1:
            Create RAID Volume. Enter a volume name (using English alphanumeric ASCII
            characters) and press <Enter>.
            3. Use the arrow keys to select RAID 0 or RAID 1 (if only two SATA drives are
            available), RAID 5 and RAID 10 (these options will only appear if three or four
            SATA drives are installed respectively). Press <Enter> once you have selected the
            RAID LEVEL.
            4. Select the drives to be used in the RAID array (only if there are more than two
            drives available) and press <Enter>.
            5. Select the strip size, if necessary, and press <Enter>.
            6. Enter the size of the volume (if you enter less than the maximum volume size, you
            can then create a second RAID array on the remaining portion of your volume) and
            press <Enter>.
            7. Finally, press <Enter> to Create Volume.
            8. Exit the Option ROM user interface by pressing <Esc> or going to the EXIT option
            in the MAIN MENU.

              as many as possible with the given amount of drives, obviously.

                Can I create a 6 disk RAID 5 array? (use all SATA slots)

                The manual states that RAID options appear when "3 or 4 drives" are available.

                Does that mean that 4 disks is the maximum array size in DP55WB?
