  • Troubleshooting a system with RAID 5 and 500GB drives

    I have a system with RAID 5 built into the motherboard with three 500GB drives and I am not sure how to go about troubleshooting the system. It has failed and I cannot get into the system. Can't even reload OS as it won't recognize the disk either. What to do at this point? The Board is an ASUS,...

  • Windows Server 2008 Shutdown

    I have a Windows Server 2008 x64 Standard with a 3.5 TB RAID 5. The system periodically hangs and I am unable to shutdown or restart. Task Manager only opens in the taskbar.

  • RAID 5 and three-way mirroring

    Our Spac solaris 10 box has only three disks (budge limitation), and they were configured with hardware RAID 1 (3-way). Obviously, the disk performance is going to suffer since both OS and DATA will live on the same mirrored disks, however, this part of disk configuration puzzles me even more: a...

When Node 1 fails, Node 2 takes over the data shares, but in my case when Node 1 is restarted and Node 2 takes over the data, no user can access the server data. When I open the cluster administrator and try to connect...

  • Raid 5 performance

    We're going to re-do the disk configuration on a server due to need for more disk space. It's currently mirrored, raid 1, with 2 10,000rpm drives. We are planning to switch to raid 5 with 4 15,000 drives. Would this be bad for performance?

    Please forgive my ignorance, I usually deal in code and applications, servers and loading OS's onto them is like talking Klingon to me right now, but I'm learning. I was stupid enough to buy a Dell PowerEdge 800 server with 3 x 500Gb disks already installed (and configured) as a RAID 5. I could...
