This is for testing purposes, so I can beat upon this system at liesure.
Thanks in advance,

The Autoraids use a layer of management/ vitual I/O sw that it seems would have to be included in the PDC code for the system to be able to access them. AutoRAids may be even more difficult, since they will shift their data from one 'area' to another, depending of how often it is written to. A system booting would need a vehicle to keep track of that included in the boot (pdc) code.
But at least I can see my AutoRaids from the system using SAM. My DG / Clarian arrays are invisible.

Now having said this, booting from an array of any kind is something I never do. There are still some tasks that good ole standalone disks are good for --- and booting is one of them. When things go wrong, I really don't want anything extra in the loop. You mentioned K boxes so my other rule is NEVER use the internal disks unless they is hot-pluggable -- which the K-bays ain't. Get your self some Jamaica enclosures. The Jamaica's and their disk modulkes are dirt cheap on the used market and are ideal boot (and bootmirror) devices for an old K-box.
