I currently have a motherboard with Adaptec's 880 chipset, and with an ARO-1130 card from Adaptec I can convert it to a RAID device.
I need to run Windows NT Server 4.0 and a financial database system on this system. I would like to have a setup which allows me to switch over to a new drive quickly (less than half an hour) if one should fail.
I would also like to partition the two 6.0GB SCSI drives as follows:
Partition 1 (2.0GB) - Windows NT
Partition 2 (4.0GB) - database
Can I use RAID 5 on such a configuration? Can NT be mirrored on another drive during operation? Is there a better configuration I should consider?
