4 2-1 RAID Overview Chapter 2 RAID Arrays When first developed, RAID was an acronym for Redundant Array of Inexpensive Drives. This, however, was changed to Redundant Array of Independent Disks, for it was the more expensive SCSI disk drives with superior performance and capacity which captured the dominant share of the RAID market. With the increased performance of SATA host controllers and higher capacity or SATA drives coming to the market, the time is right to put SATA RAID to work in the small office, home office environment. RAID was designed to greatly enhance two main categories (RAID 0 and RAID 1) of data storage, performance and data integrity. SATARaid GUI is a software Windows-based RAID utility. Please refer to chapter 4 for more details on how this utility works RAID 0 (striping) Striping is a performance oriented, non-redundant data mapping technique. It does not provide fault tolerance so it will not protect your data. Data is spread across all disks in the stripe set allowing multiple I/O operations enhancing performance by taking advantage of today bus mastering technology. The drawback is when one disk fails the whole group fails. Two blank hard drives are required for striping RAID 1 (mirroring) Mirroring provides fault tolerance by making an exact duplicate of existing disks. The mirrored disk can then take over if the source disk fails. While the mirror approach provides excellent fault tolerance it is expensive to implement because only 50% of your disk space is available for disk storage. Two hard drives are required for RAID 1. 2

5 2-2 BIOS Overview Creating and dissolving RAID sets is currently a function found in the BIOS. During boot up, the following message will appear, pausing for a few moments to allow the user to choose what to do: Press <CTRL+S> or F4 to enter RAID utility In order to properly prepare and maintain a storage system, the user needs to be aware of which drive is which if the disk drives are not of equal size. Disk Drive and Set Reporting (Numbering) Before creating or dissolving RAID Sets, it is also important to understand how each different piece of software reports both the physical disk drives and Sets, which could be either an independent drive or an actual RAID set consisting of two drives. For example, the BIOS and SATARaid GUI will report the two physical disk drives as 0 and 1. After configuring your RAID Set, the set will report as 0 and the drives contained within the RAID Set will be 0 and 1. Windows, on the other hand, does not report the physical disk drives, but only the Sets (even if they are representing single, independent disk drives). However, Windows calls the sets drives. In other words, it sees a RAID Set as a single drive of whatever size the RAID Set reports. In Windows, the numbering of each set (drive) will differ depending on which operating system is being used as well as other devices currently installed on the computer. It will almost always be different than that reported in the BIOS or SATARaid GUI. However, THE ORDER of the sets reported in the BIOS and SATARaid GUI will be maintained in Windows such that Set 1 in the BIOS will be the first drive reported in any of the Windows operating systems. Set 2 will always be the second drive, and so forth. 3

6 Creating Striped Sets (RAID 0) Overview: General instructions for creating a Striped Set are given below. When you're ready to start, go to section 2-3 Creating RAID Arrays to set up your RAID Set. 1. As the BIOS boots, the following message will appear, pausing for a few moments to allow the user to choose what to do: Press <CTRL+S> or F4 to enter RAID utility 2. Press the appropriate button(s) to enter the RAID BIOS utility. 3. If this is the first time opening the BIOS utility, or if no RAID sets exist, something similar to the following screen will appear: Create RAID set Delete RAID set Rebuild Mirrored set Resolve conflicts Low Level Format 0 PM Manufacturer Model MB 1 SM Manufacturer Model MB The name of the manufacturer and model number should actually appear. Also the size of each drive/set appears (in this example, these are 20GB drives with 19541MB space available). 4. Highlight Create RAID set then press Enter. 5. Choose which type of RAID set to create. In this case choose Striped then press Enter. 6. Select Auto configuration or Manual configuration then press Enter. 4

9 7. When asked Are you sure to exit (Y/N)?, Press Y to exit. 2-3 Creating RAID Arrays The Serial ATA RAID BIOS will list the hard drives attached to the controller. The physical drives are labeled 0 and 1. Use this numbering sequence when defining the drives in your RAID Arrays. SATARaid GUI provides two RAID set types, Striped (RAID 0) and Mirrored (RAID 1). It is recommended to use identical hard drives for all RAID configurations; however, it's possible to combine hard drives of different sizes and makes RAID 0 (striping) This RAID array to be used on New/Blank hard drives, do not stripe existing hard drive(s) that contain data. 1. As the BIOS boots press Ctrl+S or F4 when prompted to enter the RAID BIOS. 2. At the next screen select Create RAID Set, then press Enter. 3. Select Striped, then press Enter. 4. At the next screen choose Auto configuration or Manual configuration. Note: It is recommended to use Auto configuration. For Advanced users or software applications that require a custom chunk size, Manual configuration is offered. Auto configuration The default chunk size is 16 when selecting Auto configuration. 1. Select Auto configuration, then press Enter. 2. When asked Are You Sure (Y/N)?, press Y to accept. 3. Press Ctrl+E to exit the BIOS. 4. When asked Are you sure to exit (Y/N)?, press Y to exit and reboot. 7

10 Manual configuration Select chunk size from 4k, 8k, 16k, 32k, 64k or 128k bytes. 1. Select Manual configuration, then press Enter. 2. Select the first drive, press Enter. 3. Select the second drive, press Enter. 4. Select the chunk size, then press Enter. 5. When asked Are You Sure (Y/N)?, press Y to accept. 6. Press Ctrl+E to exit the BIOS. 7. When asked Are you sure to exit (Y/N)?, press Y to exit and reboot RAID 1 (mirroring) 1. As the BIOS boots, press Ctrl+S or F4 when prompted to enter the RAID BIOS. 2. At the next screen select Create RAID Set, then press Enter. 3. At the next screen select Mirrored, then press Enter. 4. At the next screen choose Auto configuration or Manual configuration. Note: It is recommended to use Auto configuration when configuring blank hard disk drive. To mirror a hard disk drive with existing data, follow the steps in Manual configuration. Auto configuration Use for blank hard disk drives 1. Select Auto configuration, then press Enter. 2. When asked Are You Sure (Y/N)?, press Y to accept. 3. Press Ctrl+E to exit the BIOS. 8

11 4. When asked Are you sure to exit (Y/N)?, press Y to exit and reboot. Manual configuration Use for hard disk drives with existing data 1. Select Manual configuration, then press Enter. 2. Select the Source drive, press Enter. 3. Select the Target drive, press Enter. 4. At the Disk Copy windows select Yes, then press Enter. 5. Select Offline copy, then press Enter. 6. When asked Are You Sure (Y/N)?, press Y to begin disk copy. Note: Copy time is dependant on the size of the mirrored set. Do not interrupt disk copy once started. 7. After disk copy completes, press Ctrl+E to exit the BIOS. 8. When asked Are you sure to exit (Y/N)?, press Y to exit and reboot. 2-4 Deleting a RAID Set 1. As the BIOS boots, press Ctrl+S or F4 when prompted to enter the RAID BIOS. 2. Select Delete RAID Set, then press Enter. 3. Press Enter. 4. When asked Are You Sure (Y/N)?, press Y to confirm. 5. The RAID set is now deleted. 2-5 Rebuilding a Mirrored Set The steps below will guide you in rebuilding a failed Mirror set. When a failure to one member occurs you will be notified either by the RAID BIOS during boot or by the SATARaid GUI while in Windows. In either event, 9

12 determine which drive has failed, replace the failed drive, enter the RAID BIOS utility, then re-configure the mirror by using the steps below. 1. During boot press Ctrl+S or F4 to enter the RAID BIOS. 2. Select Rebuild Mirror set then press Enter. 3. Select Offline rebuild then press Enter. 4. When asked Are You Sure (Y/N)?, press Y to confirm. 5. The mirror will start to rebuild. When rebuilding finishes press Ctrl+E to exit. (Rebuilding can take minutes depending on the size of the mirror). 6. When asked Are you sure to exit (Y/N)?, press Y to confirm. 2-6 Resolve Conflicts When a RAID set is created, the metadata written to the disk includes drive connection information (Primary Master, Secondary Master). If, after a disk failure, the replacement disk was previously part of a RAID set (or used in another system), it may have conflicting metadata, specifically in reference to the drive connection information. If so, this will prohibit the RAID set from being either created or rebuilt, in order for the RAID set to function properly, this old metadata must be first overwritten with the new metadata. To resolve this, from the main BIOS window select Resolve Conflicts, then press Enter, the correct metadata, including the correct drive connection information, will be written to the replacement disk. 2-7 Low Level Format Low Level Format is built into the RAID BIOS to make it more convenient for you to erase the entire contents of a hard disk drive, including data, drive and partition information. The Low Level Format utility works on single hard drives only, before the RAID set is configured. 10

22 Chapter 4 Using Utilities 4-1 Introducing the SATA RAID GUI The SATARaid GUI provides the user an easy way to monitor your RAID set. It also offers administrative tools to save, copy, or send via the current configuration. 4-2 Installing the SATA RAID GUI 1. Place the driver installation CD-ROM into the CD-ROM drive. 2. At the Windows desktop click Start, then Run. 3. Type D:\GUISATAR.exe, then click OK. (Change D: to match your CD-ROM drive) 4. Follow on-screen instructions to complete the installation. The installation of the SATARaid GUI is now complete. Proceed to section 4-3 Using the SATA RAID GUI for operating instructions. 20

23 4-3 Using the SATA RAID GUI During the installation process, the SATARaid GUI was saved in the Windows Startup folder, a small blue SATARaid logo will appear in the right-hand corner of taskbar. To launch the GUI, simply click on the icon. Upon launching the GUI, the first window which identifies the computer running SATARaid should appear similar to the following. 21

24 Selecting each different component in the configuration tree provides specific information for that component, such as the chip. By selecting a specific channel, either Channel 0 or Channel 1, the following information is reported. 22

25 Selecting a specific device reports all pertinent information to that device, including Configuration and Disk Identification information. 23

26 Selecting Sets reports on the active RAID set. By selecting the specific RAID set, such as Set 0 which is a Mirrored Set, the type of RAID set, the number of members and capacity is reported. 24

27 The Members tab reports the device identification (corresponding with the information in the BIOS) and the state of each device. Besides reporting information, the Members tab of a Mirrored Set allows the user to remove a specific drive from that set. However, a drive cannot be removed from a stripe set, as this would destroy all the data. 25

28 The device identification, along with the State of each device is also reported in the Members tab window. Note that when a Mirrored Set is first created, the State of the destination drive may report as Rebuild for as much as minutes depending on the size of the disk. SMART and Configuration information, as well as Data Identification are again provided for each Set. 26

29 4-4 Configuration Menu With SATARaid Gui running, the small SATARaid icon should appear in the bottom right of the computer screen, next to the clock. By right-clicking on the icon and clicking Configure the user may configure SATARaid including customizing the settings for SMTP, , Notification, Event Level, Log File, Audio, and Popup. SMTP The SMTP server is the server that is used to send s. Normally, the network administrator knows what this name is. Both the name and domain must be entered. 27

30 The current SATARaid configuration may be sent via . Using the tab in the Configuration Menu, the user may set the default address and subject line to where the configuration should be sent. This, however, can be overridden at the time of sending the . Notification When different types of events occur, SATARaid may be configured to send notices to assigned individual addresses. Using the Notification tab, all addresses desired to receive the notices may be entered. 28

31 Event Level There are different types of notifications that may be sent which are set with the Event Level tab. The different levels are: Disabled - No event logs will be sent.
