I'm upgrading my server and can't seem to find what the largest volume size I can have. Right now I have 2 volumes both 2GB. I would like to make it 1 volume around the 10GB range. Is this possible or should I stick with 2 volumes at 4GB or high range?

scott,

Here is my spin on it.  Both 3.12 and 4.11 are capable of handling up to 32 TB (right, terabytes) of disk.  There is a limitation of 2M files per volume up to NW4.10.  In NW4.11 this is expanded to 16M files per volume.  I would suggest a separate volume for the system files and the user files with access to the  system volume only for admin.  Perhaps 1GB for system and 9GB for user files.  I am running one 4.10 system with 9GB for user files and it runs fine.

Hope this helps
Randy
