I am having issues in setting up RAID on the ST250. My configuration is as follows:
ST250 - 7Y46CTO1WW
Using Intel RSTe software RAID
Drives: 4 - 1.2 tb SAS 2.5"
The issue that I am having is that the drives do not show up under RAID setup on the main XClarity menu, nor under the UEFI/System Settings/Storage/Intel RSTe Controller. I can see them in inventory, but inventory lists no information about them, simply shows 4 drives installed. Am I missing something, or will this configuration not work?
Solved! Go to Solution.

Did you try to configure RAID on the LXPM?
Could you please refer the LXPM RAID Setup document or video-Lenovo ThinkSystem XClarity Provisioning Manager - LXPM Raid Configuration to configure RAID on the LXPM.

Please refer to the ST250_maintenance_manual , from page 41 to 44 to understand the cable routing for the backplanes and order the additional cables if required.
If you would like to set up a RAID using an additional RAID adapter, please choose the following options:
12 Gb SAS/SATA RAID for hot-swap drive configurations:
The 430-8i is an HBA card, it does not support RAID.
