Optional: Changing the RAID mode

You can change to a different RAID mode on the appliance to accommodate your storage and recovery requirements. You can only change the mode before deploying the appliance Storage Node.

Before you begin

About this task

Before deploying the appliance as a Storage Node, you can choose one of the following volume configuration options:
Attention: If any volumes have already been configured or if StorageGRID was previously installed, changing the RAID mode causes the volumes to be removed and replaced. Any data on those volumes will be lost.


  1. Open a browser, and enter one of the IP addresses for the appliance's compute controller.

    Controller_IP is the IP address of the compute controller (not the storage controller) on any of the three StorageGRID networks.

    The StorageGRID Appliance Installer Home page appears.

  2. Select Advanced > RAID Mode.
  3. On the Configure RAID Mode page, select the desired RAID mode from the Mode drop-down list.
  4. Click Save.
