  • 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.

  • RAID level comparison: data protection vs. redundancy

    With respect to the tradeoff between redundancy vs. data protection, what recommendations can you make on RAID levels? Is it completely dependent on the environment, or are there clear advantages to using a RAID 5 over RAID 3, etc.?

    I want to add new disks to my AS/400. I have 6x36Gb in RAID 5. I want to add 2x146Gb in mirror. My question is. Would it be added to the ASP 1, or I must create a different ASP (ASP 2?) for the new disks as the RAID configuration is not the same.
