Brief cheat sheet for Adaptec arcconf CLI

Most commands allow noprompt to force a command

Gather information

show adapter information
arcconf getconfig 1 ad
show logical device information
arcconf getconfig 1 ld
show physical disk information
arcconf getconfig 1 pd
show all information
arcconf getconfig 1 al
get all device ids for SSDs
arcconf getconfig 1 pd | awk '{ if ( $2 ~ /Channel,Device/ ) {pos=$NF}; if ( $1 ~ /SSD/ && $3 ~ /Yes/) {print pos}}' | cut -d\( -f1
get all device ids for non-SSDs
arcconf getconfig 1 pd | awk '{ if ( $2 ~ /Channel,Device/ ) {pos=$NF}; if ( $1 ~ /SSD/ && $3 ~ /No/) {print pos}}' | cut -d\( -f1
get all device ids for WDC disks
arcconf getconfig 1 pd | awk '{ if ( $2 ~ /Channel,Device/ ) {pos=$NF}; if ( $1 ~ /Vendor/ && $3 ~ /WDC/) {print pos}}' | cut -d\( -f1
get available logical device numbers
arcconf getconfig 1 ld | awk '/^Logical device number/ {print $NF}'
short list of all physical disks
arcconf getconfig 1 pd|egrep "Device #|State\>|Reported Location|Reported Channel|S.M.A.R.T. warnings|Serial"

Manipulate arrays

delete logical device
arcconf delete 1 logicaldrive all
create RAID6 volume with default stripe size on devices all non-SSD devices
arcconf create 1 logicaldrive name data method build rcache ron wcache wb max 6 $(arcconf getconfig 1 pd | awk '{ if ( $2 ~ /Channel,Device/ ) {pos=$NF}; if ( $1 ~ /SSD/ && $3 ~ /No/) {print pos}}' | cut -d\( -f1)
create JBOD on two devices
arcconf create 1 jbod 0,22 0,23

FAI approach

software raid

arcconf delete 1 logicaldrive all noprompt
# first for HDD
arcconf create 1 jbod $(arcconf getconfig 1 pd | awk '{ if ( $2 ~ /Channel,Device/ ) {pos=$NF}; if ( $1 ~ /SSD/ && $3 ~ /No/) {print pos}}' | cut -d\( -f1)
# then for SSD (no real reason, but to keep them separated for now
arcconf create 1 jbod $(arcconf getconfig 1 pd | awk '{ if ( $2 ~ /Channel,Device/ ) {pos=$NF}; if ( $1 ~ /SSD/ && $3 ~ /Yes/) {print pos}}' | cut -d\( -f1)
