Need to set up RAID on your Dell server? Watch this video for a step-by-step guide on how to enter the RAID configuration utility and set a basic single RAID array on a Dell server using a PERC 6/I controller. In this video we set up RAID on a Dell R710 but the steps will look the same on any other Dell server with the same controller.
Stay tuned for our HP video!
HOW-TO: Configure RAID on a Dell Server
0:28 Powering on - getting to the RAID controller BIOS
0:48 RAID 0 - striping
2:01 RAID 1 - mirroring
3:07 RAID 5 - parity
4:15 RAID 10 - striping + mirroring

**Important notes: Once you’ve set up your RAID, do not move drives around unless they are hot swappable, or your RAID will be lost.
**RAID should not be a means for backing up data! If you rely on one server to store your data, you run the risk of losing everything.
