Optional: Changing to RAID6 mode (SG5760 only)

If you have an SG5760 with 60 drives, you can change the volume configuration from its default and recommended setting, Dynamic Disk Pools (DDP), to RAID6. You can only change the mode before deploying the StorageGRID Webscale appliance Storage Node.

Before you begin

Attention: If any volumes have already been configured or if StorageGRID Webscale was previously installed, changing the RAID mode causes the volumes to be removed and replaced. Any data on those volumes will be lost.

About this task

Before deploying a StorageGRID Webscale appliance Storage Node, you can choose from two volume configuration options:

Steps

  1. Using the service laptop, open a web browser and access the StorageGRID Webscale Appliance Installer: http://E5700SG_Controller_IP:8080

  2. From the menu bar, select Advanced > RAID Mode.
  3. On the Configure RAID Mode page, select RAID6 from the Mode drop-down list.
  4. Click Save.
