IBM NetFinity 4500R ipsraid install

However, I knew darn well that they don't make different CD's for every OS out there, so I went to http://www-3.ibm.com/pc/support/site.wss/MIGR-39729.html. The README file there showed me that SCO BTLD images were on the "Linux" CD, so I downloaded that and made a BTLD floppy from it.

Protecting your data with RAID  
- That review concentrates on tech specs and performance, but here I'd like to talk about the other reason you want RAID: data protection. RAID means 'Redundant Array of Inexpensive Disks' and it's the 'redundant' part that I'm talking about. The simplest RAID is RAID-0 or mirroring, which simply writes the same data to two or more disks. If your primary disk failed, the mirror could take over and have no loss of data. RAID-5, which is the other most popular RAID configuration, spreads data over multiple disks and keeps the ability to reconstruct data from any single drive loss 'on the fly' -

Another RAID failure  
- Sometimes the worst part of a raid failure can be working with people. The hardware and software usually makes sense; people may not. -

Rebuilding failed Linux software RAID   2011/10/26 kuntergunt
- Rebuild crashed Linux raid. Recently I had a hard drive fail. It was part of a Linux software RAID 1 (mirrored drives), so we lost no data, and just needed to replace hardware. However, the raid does requires rebuilding. A hardware array would usually automatically rebuild upon drive replacement, but this needed some help. -

SME server software raid failure, grub 0x10 error  
- Grub boot would start to load the SME kernel and then fail with a 0x10 message. That's a CRC error. -

IBM NetFinity 4500R ipsraid install  
- A client bought one of these on Ebay for $200.00. Not a bad deal at all, But it turned into quite a struggle. First, he couldn't find drivers. Well, he could easily find a page that listed drivers, but it was all dead links. -

Linux|Unix Logical Volume Manager (LVM) on Software RAID   2011/01/07 TonyLawrence
- Logical Volume Manager is now included with most Linux distributions. The RedHat 8.0 installer even allows you to create LVM volumes during initial install. LVM offers capabilities previously only found in expensive products like Veritas. If you plan on using LVM, I really recommend doing so on a RAID system, either hardware or software -

Understanding RAID  
- Today anyone with high disk performance needs or concerns about data reliability should consider some sort of RAID configuration. -

DPT Raid Controller  
- DPT ( http://www.dpt.com) builds a complete line of SCSI raid controllers -

Installing OpenServer 5.0.7 on a Dell Poweredge 2850 with dell amird raid (SCO Unix)  
- When I link in the BTLD for the amird driver, it doesn't load the IDE adapter for the CD-ROM. If I leave out the amird driver, the IDE controller loads fine. -
