Ok, I have never tried to install Ubuntu to a RAID setup before.
I am running a Supermicro X8DT3-LN4F motherboard with onboard Adaptec RAID controller with six 160GB drives attached to form a RAID10. Status of the RAID set is OPTIMAL.
I try to install Ubuntu 9.04 server, however when I get to disks detection phase, Ubuntu reads all 6 drives as separate 160GB drives instead of a single RAID 10 480GB set.
I tried going ahead and installing to one drive just to see what would happen, and as expected, not much.
Searching around I can't seem to find anybody who has experienced this sort of thing.
On other systems where I was using a different kind of raid controller, I never experienced this. The raid set always came up as a single drive. But I was never trying to install Ubuntu to the raid sets in the past.
I have already put in an email to tech support, but I wanted to see just how deep the rabbit hole goes here at serverfault :)
Can anybody tell me what is going wrong here?
