This IBM® Redpaper™ publication describes how to set up RAID1 on your hardware management console (HMC), model 7042-CR6 or 7042-CR7 hardware appliance. During the migration, you perform a standard, from the beginning, HMC installation and restoration of your data.

The procedures in this paper are supported only on HMC machines, models 7042-CR6 and 7042-CR7. When the procedure differs between models, this paper indicates to which model the instructions apply.

This paper is intended for IT professionals, such as IBM clients, IBM Business Partners, information architects, business intelligence administrators, and database administrators.
