Type Keyword
Type is a required keyword, indicating the array type. There is no default value. The possible
values: Volume, RAID0, RAID1, RAID5, RAID10, or RAID50.
Depending on the RAID levels supported by your RAID controller, additional possible values
are: RAID1E, RAID5EE, RAID6, RAID60.
Wait Keyword
Wait is an optional keyword that you can use to tell the ACU to allow the ACU to continue
while the Build/Verify or Clear completes in the background; specify Wait=No. Otherwise, the
ACU waits by default.
If the host is powered off before the Build/Verify or Clear process completes and is then
restarted, the process resumes without any user intervention.
For example:
Wait=Yes
Wait=No
WriteCache Keyword
The WriteCache keyword indicates whether write caching is used for this array if write caching
is supported for the system. Possible values are as follows:
Yes (default)—Enable the write cache.
No—Disable the write cache.
Setting an array's WriteCache keyword to Yes might result in data loss or corruption during a
power failure.
For example:
WriteCache=Yes
Channel Definition Block Keywords—SCSI only
The channel definition block is optional. If used, it always begins with the keyword Channel and
ends with the keyword End. The channel definition block keywords are listed in this table.

channel keyword and value.
