We'll need a lot more detail. Do you want to do software RAID or hardware RAID? If software, what OS are you running? If hardware, what RAID card does the server have? What do you mean by "i cant access to the utility mode"? – Hyppy Mar 25 '11 at 12:54


Maybe this info can point you in the rigth direction, :

RAID Configuration and Management
Dell™ PowerEdge™ Expandable RAID Controller 5/i and 5/E User's Guide

What you are looking for is to set up a virtual disk: Setting up Virtual Disk

Hope this can help you
