Internal PCI X RAID Controller issue ?

Hello folks,

Could someone tell me why I unable to create pdisks for a RAID Array

Code:
# lscfg | grep scsi
+ sisscsia0        U787A.001.DPM0707-P1             PCI-X Dual Channel Ultra320 SCSI Adapter
+ scsi0            U787A.001.DPM0707-P1-T10         PCI-X Dual Channel Ultra320 SCSI Adapter bus
+ scsi1            U787A.001.DPM0707-P1-T11         PCI-X Dual Channel Ultra320 SCSI Adapter bus

Code:
smitty devices

Move cursor to desired item and press Enter.

  RAIDiant Disk Array
  IBM PCI SCSI Disk Array
 > IBM PCI-X SCSI Disk Array
  FC SCSI RAIDiant Disk Array

I will select PCI-X SCSI Disk Array

then

Code:
Move cursor to desired item and press Enter.

  PCI-X SCSI Disk Array Manager
  Configure a Defined PCI-X SCSI RAID Controller
  Unconfigure an Available PCI-X SCSI RAID Controller
  Change/Show PCI-X SCSI RAID Controller Bus
  Download Microcode to a PCI-X SCSI RAID Controller

when I click on Configure a defined PCI-X SCSI RAID Controller
or on Change/Show PCI-X SCSI RAID Controller Bus
I get
Code:
 ERROR MESSAGE                               │

what could be the issue ?

so what could be the issue ?

someone told me the RAID controller might not be installed as a H/W Feature Code. How can I confirm this ?
# 3  
anyone faced similar problem or know how to solve this problem ?

what feature code I should be looking for RAID Adapter ?
# 4  
I do not have your hardware at hand, so the advice tends to be a bit general.

Having said this: is your PCI-X SCSI-Adapter RAID-capable at all? "SCSI" is a way to connect disks, whereas "RAID" is a way to organize several physical disks into one big logical disk. A SCSI adapter doesn't necessarily have to be RAID-capable at all (and maybe yours isn't).

Are there any disks attached to the controller? Without (enough) disks you can't create a RAID-array, obviously.

I hope this helps.

thank you bakunin for the reply. Really I am confused about this issue. I referred to IBM Manual but it doesn't help.

According to this IBM link the correct driver is

Quote:
Required software or drivers
AIX® - devices.pci.1410be02 device driver package
Further, there is this document about "RAID enablements". You might simply have not met the requirements for a RAID.

I hope this helps.

I have read the documents, the confusion arising if whether the hardware supports or not,

as you mentioned that I need to download the driver
devices.pci.1410be02 device driver package

i will install and check and post here if it solves the problem. But my main concern is that does the hardware support or not ?
