Linux Intel C600 Sas Controller Driver Missing Hard Drive

Missing harddisk from RAID volume even though its there attached. Driver version: 11.6.0.1030. Disk on Controller 255, Port Unknown. NB: Just for anecdote, I received 10 years ago a 2 drives Linux based SAN from Western Digital. 00:1f.2 RAID bus controller: Intel Corporation C600/X79 series chipset SATA RAID Controller This means I actually have a hardware RAID right? I currently have an SSD-disk as my system partition and two 2TB Harddisks as /home partition, which should be configured to mirror each other as RAID 1 (not sure how to check that, though).

I have a DELL precision workstation which is supposed to have a Hardware RAID controller. However, I have no knowledge/experience with setting up that kind of system. It is currently running Ubuntu 14.04, and lspci -vv grep 'RAID' gave me this info:

I now want to replace both 2TB '/home'-harddisks of my system with bigger (4Tb) versions, and at the same time do a complete new installation of the most recent Xubuntu LTS. However, I still want the new Harddisks to mirror each other with RAID 1.

  • How do I configure the Hardware RAID during Installation of Xubuntu for the new hard-disks?
  • Are there special considerations when choosing new hard disks (is it possible that some might not be compatible with the RAID controller)?
  • Do I have to partition the new disks in any special way (otherwise I would just create a single ext4 partition on each of them)?

Thanks for any help..
