To properly configure your Dell PERC RAID controllers, follow these steps for each logical drive in the array:
- During POST, press CTRL+M when you are prompted to enter the PERC BIOS Configuration Utility.
- In the Management menu, click Objects\Logical Drive/View\Update Parameters.
- Note If you have a PERC4 controller, you may skip this step and execute step 4.
Click Write policy, and then press ENTER. Configure the policy for Write-Thru. This option should now appear as:Write Policy = WRTHRU
- On the Management menu, click Objects\Adapter and then press ENTER. Click Cluster Mode, and then press ENTER. Change the option to Enabled. This option should now appear as:Cluster Mode = Enabled
Note If you enable Cluster Mode when you configure your Perc Controllers, you are automatically prompted to enable the
Write-Thru cache. When you enable the
Write-Thru cache, the PERC BIOS Configuration Utility resets the Initiator ID (SCSI ID) to the default of 7. The Initator ID must be unique on each node. Otherwise, disk reservation will be lost when you power up any node that is connected to the shared resources.
- Save the configuration, exit the utility, and then restart the computer.
