3600 RAID Conguration

RAID conguration for the 3600 involves using the LSI WebOS, a GUI which is almost completely mouse based, which is a radical departure from the 3500 and 3510 keyboard only interface. Instructions for the two RAID congurations are somewhat different, so we will cover a complete conguration of a FR (RAID 1 + 0) and then a complete conguration for all other setups (RAID 10). Conguring a 3600 for a FR RAID (RAID 1 + 0) Before booting the system, ensure the mouse and keyboard are both plugged in, as you will need them both for conguration. The initial startup / BIOS boot screen could take up to 30 seconds to display.

When this screen disappears, press CTRL + H to access the WebOS Conguration screen.
