Summary

The SATA chipset on my Smoothwall hardware supports RAID 0 and 1.

Can I use those RAID options on a Smoothwall install?

Problem

 

Solution

Most SATA chipsets that offer RAID requires proprietary drivers to work. We (Smoothwall) cannot distribute these.

All Smoothwall products support software RAID configurations. It is recommended to use the SATA controller, but do not set up RAID drives on the controller. During installation, the installer should find two disks and ask if a mirror RAID is wanted. If you confirm this, the Smoothwall will configure the software RAID for you.
