    I'm in kind of a pinch for disk space on my SYS volume.  I currently have a 200MB partition on a SCSI hard drive allocated to volume SYS.  Is it possible to insert an IDE hard drive in my server and then add the additional space to my SYS volume?  Or am I just asking for trouble trying to spliting SYS volume between IDE and SCSI?  Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated.

I think you should be alright to do this. I will try this to test this on one of my test computers soon and will get back to you.
You would probably be better off if you can get your hands on another SCSI driver for optimine performance.

There won't be any problem - the difference between the disks for the Netware server is the HD driver.
The Netware server knows to use two drivers to make one volume on two HDs - so it won't be a problem to do it when one of the drivers is SCSI driver.

Anyway, I were you I would NOT do it. The problem starts when you want to delete/change the volume/HD - if one of the HDs crashes this mean you last the whole volume (and I say this after bad experience).

Saar,
        Thanks for the thought.  After talking with other people on the issue as well I have decided to stick with purchasing another SCSI hard drive.

I still wouldn't make a big volume over 2 HDs...
