I know my way around software raid(newbie, but can manage) but not when it comes to hardware raid.
I'd appreciate help with setting up raid 10 on an m3.
Detailed steps would be appreciated, but a link to an article would be even better as i'd like to learn instead of just fix this one issue at hand.
Note: i've checked the user guide, but there's a number of explanation that it got me confused.

There are few ways, for example, you can use IBM ServerGuide CD for RAID configuration.
