Where are my other disks on T5220 ?

Hi,
I got a (used) server to install Solaris 11 and wipe out every information on existing disks. There are 6 disks of 300GB and two disks of 146GB. I am not able to figure out, how to find out RAID (if there is any) and break it. Can anybody help me with that ? Below is configuration. I have installed OS on c2t0d0.

HTML Code:
root@predb-dev2:~# echo|format

You are using the Storagetek (Adaptec) RAID-HBA card in your server. Read the documentation here:

You will also need this image to boot the server and manage the RAID arrays:

Thanks much. It was very helpful.
I booted from RAID Management DVD and ran "arcconf DELETE 1 LOGICALDRIVE ALL"
That wiped out installed OS also, which is OK for me. I am booting from Solaris 11 OS DVD now, but it says "OS can not be installed on any of the disks". I checked in "shell" and it doesn't see any disk now

Code:
To select the language you wish to use, enter a number [default is 3]:
User selected: English
Configuring devices.
Hostname: solaris
Welcome to the Oracle Solaris installation menu
        1  Install Oracle Solaris
        2  Install Additional Drivers
        3  Shell
        4  Terminal type (currently xterm)
        5  Reboot
Please enter a number [1]: 3
To return to the main menu, exit the shell
root@solaris:/root# echo|format
Searching for disks...done
No disks found!
root@solaris:/root#

---------- Post updated at 09:27 PM ---------- Previous update was at 09:19 PM ----------

However, on OBP level, I can see below output

Code:
{0} ok show-disks
a) /pci@0/pci@0/pci@9/scsi@0/disk
b) /pci@0/pci@0/pci@2/scsi@0/disk
c) /pci@0/pci@0/pci@1/pci@0/pci@1/pci@0/usb@0,2/storage@2/disk
q) NO SELECTION
Enter Selection, q to quit:

You have used the STK RAID Live CD which DukeNuke2 told you to download to wipe existing RAID arrays from the STK controller. You can now see no disks from Solaris. That is correct behaviour.

Solaris will only see RAID arrays configured via the STK management suite (which on initialisation, will be automatically mapped to the host - Solaris).

It is likely that the previous sysadmin had a RAID1 (mirror) array configured for the root disk of 2 x 146GB giving a usable capacity of 146GB, plus a RAID5 array of 6 x 300GB for data giving a usable capacity of 1.5TB. That's why you could see only 2 disks originally.

Solaris will NOT see all 8 disks together only the result of each RAID array you create with the STK Manager as a single disk.

So you need to boot into the STK Manager again and create the arrays you want, then each of them will appear as a disk to Solaris.

Hope that helps.

Got some idea with your explanation and documentation.
I wanted to use "no RIAD" at all and just want standard zfs mirror with two disks of 146GB. For other 300 GB disks, I will figure later, what needs to be done.
Here, don't I have option to, not use STK RAID at all and just see all disks in format output as standard ?
I am still learning this suite and going through documentations, but any quick help would be appreciated.

A true hardware RAID will need to be told what you want it to use the disks for before it will show them, even when you're just asking for JBOD.

Okay, some of what I'm about to say I'm guessing....please note that....

Is the Storagetek controller an add-in card? Or is it built into the motherboard?

If it's add-in you might be able to pull out the card and connect the ribbon cables from the disks to the motherboard. I'm really not sure. Anybody know amongst all the Sun experts on here?

Otherwise, there may be a "pass-through" option on the STK Manager to simply map raw disks (without RAID) to Solaris. That needs investigation unless another member with better knowledge of STK than me chips in.

---------- Post updated at 06:25 PM ---------- Previous update was at 06:08 PM ----------

This:

https://docs.oracle.com/cd/E19637-01.../E23172-01.pdf

seems to say it's an add-in card.

the (default) drives are SAS drives.

It looks like if you don't want RAID (other than RAID0 or RAID1 which the motherboard provides according to this pdf), just pull the card out. (Don't throw it away because it's worth money!!!)

---------- Post updated at 06:31 PM ---------- Previous update was at 06:25 PM ----------

It would still be better to do a pass-through of drives from the STK if that's possible.
