I got a new Bladecenter S chassis with four JS21 blades in it,i got one SAS module installed in bay 3 and i have 4 drives in storage module1, i have VIOS installed on all these blades successfully & i had assigned 1 each external drive o each blade.
The SAS Expansion Card supports three RAID levels:
RAID-1 (called Integrated Mirroring)
RAID-1E (called Integrated Mirroring Enhanced)
RAID-0 (called Integrated Striping)
This can be done The LSI Configuration Utility program as per IBM document redp4357.pdf but when i reboot these blades i don't see the LSI Configuration Utility program so that i can hit contl+C ?
can anyone give me step by step procedure to complete the RAID on JS21 on Bladecenter S chassis?
Your help is appreciated

I've noticed that you are trying to create the a RAID scheme using AIX as a VIOS, per your latest posts in other forums. The IBM Installation Toolkit is a Linux-targeted tool, and also does not support setting up RAID arrays yet.
I'm posting a thread in the IBM Blade center forum to request someone to have a look at your post here.
