About disk management

You can manage the disk drives installed in the BIG-IP® system using the Configuration utility.

Adding a disk to an array

You can use the Configuration utility to add a disk to an array.

  1. On the Main tab, click System > Disk Management. The Disk Management screen displays a list of disks installed in the system.
  2. For the Software and Mixed Mode Disks setting, select a Disk Name.
  3. Click Add Disk to Array.
  4. Confirm that you would like to add the selected disk to the array.
    Important: This destroys any data on the disk.
    When the disk is being added to the array, for the Software and Mixed Mode Disks area, the Array Status column changes to Replicating for that disk. When the replication process is complete, the Array Status column changes to OK.
