Array.letter parameter

The Array.letter parameter specifies how many arrays are created and the exact physical drives that you want in each array.


You can use any of the following methods to specify the physical drives:
  • The channel number and SCSI ID (for SCSI) or bus number and target ID (for SATA/SAS) of each drive. The channel number or bus number is always 1-based. The SCSI ID or target ID is always 0-based.
  • A list of integer values indicating that the nth drive should be included in the array.
  • The keyword ALL to indicate that all remaining drives attached to the controller that are not specified in previous arrays should be included in the current array.
The first array must be labeled Array.A. Additional arrays are labeled sequentially, for example, Array.B, Array.C, and so on. The maximum number of arrays allowed per controller is determined by the limits of the specific RAID controller.
Example using channel number and SCSI ID:
Array.A = 1:1,1:2 	
Array.B = 1:3,1:4,1:5,2:1,2:2,2:3,2:4,2:5,2:6
Array.C = ALL
Example using integer values:
Array.A = 1,2,3	
Array.B = ALL
