Optional: Changing to RAID6 mode

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 appliance Storage Node.

Before you begin

About this task

Before deploying the SG6060 appliance as a Storage Node, you can choose from two volume configuration options:
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.

Steps

  1. Access the StorageGRID Appliance Installer: http://SG6000-CN_Controller_IP:8080
    SG6000-CN_Controller_IP is the IP address of the SG6000-CN controller on any of the three StorageGRID Webscale networks.
  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.
