4# Scenario
5I am running 2.11-DEVELOPMENT DragonFly 64Bit with i5 Core on an IntelĀ® Server-Mainboard S1200BT with 8GB RAM.
6The Main System is on two Disks mirrored RAID1 with 500GB.
7I want to use dfBSD as our company Fileserver for important Backups. Also I found an old (not much used) Dawi controler (with Sillicon's SiL Chip) with 4 SATA Ports which I want to use for our Backup Fileserver.

9# Pre-steps
10## Configuring the SATA Adapter
11Please make sure that the adapter is not configured (After the BIOS just before dfBSD starts) as RAID - just expose the disks individually to Dragonfly. We are going to setup a Software RAID.
12
13## Identifying the disks
14After booting up the system please check that the Adapter you are going to use is correctly found:
