Policies file

When used in Configure mode, the policies file directs how PRAID configures the RAID controllers in a system by using keywords and values that can be customized by the user. In Capture mode, PRAID creates or appends to the end of a policies file the parameters that can configure other RAID controllers identically to the ones in the current system.

To create a policies file, you can use any of the following methods:

The policies file is an ASCII text file that is organized in an INI file format. Each section in the policies file represents a single policy for configuring RAID controllers. Each section name in the INI file indicates the start of a new policy. You can have up to 50 policies in a single policies file.

The policies file must contain one or more uniquely-named sections that use the format [Policy.name], where name is a unique user-assigned name that identifies the policy. Name can be any combination of letters, numbers, underscores, periods, or dashes.

Some examples of valid section names are: [Policy.1], [Policy.mypolicy], and [Policy.My-RAID5-config].
