  1. Using the Dual Channel SCSI RAID Enablement Card (9115-1908)

    We recently purchased (2) 9115-505 (p5-505) systems. We wanted
    hardware RAID 1 across both internal drives. So, we purchased the
    9115-1908, the Dual Channel SCSI RAID Enablement Card.

    How do we enable the hardware RAID 1 using this card? Booting into the
    AIX 5.2/5.3 install CD doesn't allow us the opportunity to create the
    RAID 1 array _before_ installing the OS.

    You need to boot from diagnostics as described in the manuals.
