Solve Mirror Conflict

When a RAID set is created, then metadata written to the disk includes drive connection information. If, after a disk failure, the replacement disk was previously part of a RAID set (or used in another system), it may have conflicting metadata. If so, this will prohibit the RAID set from being either created or rebuilt, in order for the RAID set to function properly, this old metadata must be first overwritten with the new metadata. To resolve this, from the main BIOS window select Solve Mirror Conflict, then press Enter, the correct metadata, including the correct drive

UGT-IS100R

Page11

connection information, will be written to the replacement disk.

Rebuild Mirror Drive

When a failure to one member occurs, you will be notified by the RAID BIOS during boot. The steps below will guide you in rebuilding a failed mirror set.

1.Replace the failed drive(s) with one of equal or greater capacity, start the computer.

2.During boot press Ctrl+J to enter the RAID BIOS.

3.Select Rebuild Mirror Drive press Enter.

4.Please use arrow keys and to select the array you want to rebuild, press Enter.

5.Please use arrow keys and to select the destination disk, press Enter.
