Megaware Raid 10

view full story

http://serverfault.com – I have 22 disks and would like to create a Raid 10. Unfortunately my raid controller (MegaRAID SAS 9260-8i) is only capable to handle 8 arrays within a RAID 10. Because of that I could only use 16 disks in a 2 disks per array configuration. I've figured out that it would be possible to use 2 arrays with 10 disks each: MegaCli -CfgSpanAdd -r10 -Array0[20:2,20:3,20:4,20:5,20:6,20:7,20:8,20:9,20:10,20:11] -Array1[28:1,28:2,28:3,28:4,28:5,28:6,28:7,28:8,28:9,28:10,28:11,28:12] Direct WB -a0 After reading through the manual for hours I am not sure anymore if this increases the risk of data lost.
