We have been having problems with 'consistency checks' being run on mailfiles after the server crashes or is brought down during the day for quite some time. I am somewhat convinced that enabling transaction logging is going to help with this problem.
Our server config is
Our server is the following
1 gb RAM
5 hot swap SCSI drives
3 18 GB
The 2 9GB drives that hold the operating system,
and are mirrored (RAID 1)
The 3 18GB disks make up a single RAID 5 unit,
with a capacity of 36 GB.
One separate drive <9 gb> added to accomodate transaction logging
The RAID is handled by the server hardware as opposed to the operating system
We have a second processor which we are planning on adding this weekend.
What I am looking for is tips / hints / possible problems we may encounter either when adding the processor or enabling transaction logging. Does the server look as if it is beefy enough to make this work? <my fingers are crossed that this is the answer as our director is on the EDGE about this>
Thanks in advance for any advise tips help :)
