Hello,I just setup a server that has 4 drives. It's configured as 2x Raid 1 and LVM on top. To test it out I re... [by rwvh]
I have a Dell PowerEdge r310, MS Server 2008, RAID 1 setup.
I had a two drives fail in the RAID 1 - leaving only one drive in a healthy state.
So here is what I have currently:
8 SAS Drives total
6 Drives setup as RAID 5 as Virtual 1.
1 Drive setup as Hot Spare.
1 Drive in Ready state that is not part of the RAID and is not set as a hot spare.
Basically, everything on this server is setup on the RAID 5 as one virtual disk (OS, data, etc) and partitioned out. I want to separate things out a bit.
