Changing a Disk Drive's Write Cache Setting

Note: This task is for advanced users only.

By default, disk drive write caching is disabled in maxView Storage Manager. You can enable write caching on a disk drive to improve performance. However, if the system experiences a power, device, or system failure, or cannot be shut down properly, there is a possibility of data loss or file-system corruption.

With disk drive write caching enabled, you may lose data if a power outage or other system failure occurs.
  1. In the Enterprise View, select a controller then, in the Physical Devices tree, select a disk drive.
  2. On the ribbon, in the Physical Device group, click Set Properties.

    The Set Properties window opens.

  3. In the Write-back Cache drop-down list, select Enabled or Disabled.
  4. Click OK.
