AMD Windows RAID Installation Guide
AMD Windows RAID Installation Guide is an instruction for you to configure RAID functions by using RAIDXpert RAID
management software under Windows environment. The RAIDXpert software offers local and remote management
and monitoring of all AMD SB7
0 SATA logical drives that exist anywhere on a network. Its browser-based GUI
provides email notification of all major events/alarms, memory cache management, drive event logging, logical drive
maintenance, rebuild, and access to all components in the RAID configuration (server, controller, logical drives,
physical drives, and enclosure). RAIDXpert is designed to work with AMD SB
0 SATA RAID controllers. Other
brands of RAID controllers are not supported. Please read this guide carefully and follow the instructions below to
configure and manage RAID functions.
Components of RAIDXpert Installation Software
RAIDXpert installation software will install two major components to your system:
RAIDXpert RAID management software: The RAIDXpert software installs on the PC with the AMD SB7
RAID Controller (the “Host PC”).
Java Runtime Environment (in a private folder): The RAIDXpert installation program installs a private JRE in
folder _jvm under the same directory where RAIDXpert is installed. RAIDXpert uses this private JRE to avoid
incompatibility issues with any other JREs that may be present on your system.
On the Host PC with the AMD SB7
0 Controller, where you install RAIDXpert, you must have one of the following
browsers: Internet Explorer 6.0, Mozilla Suite 1.7, Mozilla Firefox 1.0, or Netscape Navigator 7.1.
