• From mirror to RAID

    Hi there folks, A client's system has disks with mirror protection. The goal is to stop the mirror protection and start RAID5 with hot spare. I'm going to enter DST, stopr mirror and then start RAID with hot spare. Do I need anything else? Thank you all for your help.

  • Is a 3 drive RAID 5 array a good idea?

    I am specifying a new server and have been told that a 3 drive RAID 5 array is not a good idea as I will not have a bootable drive in the event of a array controller failure. A better idea is O/S on a RAID1 mirror with apps too, and data on RAID 5 array of 3 drives. Any comments please.

  • Does a RAID 5 rebuild include deleted data?

    I understand that common data deletion removes the header and leaves the data. Also most disk mirroring software will include the deleted data. The only real way to normally get rid of deleted data is to copy the existing data to a new drive. If I choose to replace the drives in my array, would the...

  • Can I use two ultra320 and one ultra3 on same disk array for RAID 5?

    I am planning to use raid 5 and my disk array consist of two ultra320 and one ultra3. Since the transfer rate of ultra3 is slower is it going to affect the whole transfer rate and wasteful to use two ultra320?  Also should I use a ultra320 or ultra3 raid controller?

  • Drive failed in RAID 5. Hotspare did not kick in.

    One drive failed in a 6 drive raid 5 array. There was a hot spare but it did not kick in. It says offline. What needs to be done to return the array to full working condition? I would like a hot spare as well.
