Drive Write Cache (G6 servers)

The Drive Write Cache option controls the state of the write cache of the drives attached to the supported controller. This feature provides greater drive performance but could result in data corruption during an unexpected power loss or shutdown. When the Drive Write Cache option is enabled, the following message appears:

Enabling Drive Write Cache may result in data loss or data corruption if an unexpected power loss occurs.

This option only affects operation for fixed drives attached to the embedded SATA controller when not operating in a software RAID mode. This option has no effect if fixed drives are attached to an embedded or optional Smart Array controller or if the Smart Array B110i Software RAID solution is used.
