• Punctured Stripe on RAID 5 Array

    We have been having massive problems with a storage array (Dell md3000i). The issue has been escalated to the highest levels of Tech Support, at which point they advised us that we have a "punctured stripe" on our array.

  • Add a drive to a RAID 5 without destroying the data

    Can you change the amount of drives in a RAID 5 array? For example we now have 6 136 GB drives in our RAID 5 array. Can we add one more drive to the array as either a hot spare or actually part of the array? Currently the array uses all 6 drives.

  • 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.

  • What are the signs my RAID array is dying?

    What are the signs that my RAID array is dying? Are there checks I can run? Can I add a hot spare to a RAID array with 6 disks in it? Will this help if one drive fails? What if multiple drives fail, what do I do then?

  • 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?
