Configuring An Intel RAID Controller Via RMM JViewer

We are in the process of setting up a new server remotely.

We are logged in via the Intel Remote Management Module 3 that is installed on the Intel Server Board S3420GPLX.

In order to get the mouse to a liveable control level we had to close the KVM session and set the mouse configuration to RELATIVE:


Out of the box the mouse is set to ABSOLUTE mode which does not work very well at all.

Neither the Soft Keyboard nor the system’s keyboard that we are using allow for ALT+Key presses. The Keyboard menu at the top has some control over the ALT and CTRL key presses and holds but still it was not too reliable. It just worked to allow us to choose the drives for the disk group.

As long as we remained patient and moved the mouse about in a slow and fluid manner, controlling the RAID BIOS worked . . . just barely.


And finally we had our array:


So, it just takes a bit of patience to work through the process of setting up an array or arrays via the Intel Remote Management Console.
