Array and controller configuration

During the initial provisioning of the server, you must configure the controller using the Smart Array configuration utility in UEFI System Utilities.

After the initial provisioning of the server, you can use any of the following options to configure the arrays and controllers:

  • UEFI System Utilities

  • HPE MR Storage Administrator

  • StorCLI

HPE MR Storage Administrator and StorCLI are available in the Service Pack for Proliant (SPP).

For more information about using each configuration utility, see the documentation for the configuration utility.

  • Any RAID configuration created for the HPE Smart Array MR controller is not available to HPE Smart Array SR controllers.

  • The message "Data Protection disabled" in the logical drive properties can be ignored as it refers to a feature not currently supported by the HPE MR Storage Administrator product.
