What is the norm in the case of defragmenting Windows 2000 Servers with Raid 5 configurations.  I understand the importance of completing defrags on client machines, but unsure about the servers and raid configurations.  Also, the servers all have HD's that have hundreds of GB of data.  Normal defrag would take a considerably amount of time in this case.

I want to document proper procedures for the servers and was unsure of this.

Servers are affected with Disk Defragmentation just as Workstation are, Unless you are using a SAN or Fiber Solution, in which the Disk Arrarys and Data are not handled by the OS. So with that said, most Server installations that are of a File nature, should run a Server verison of a disk defragmenter to maintain performance. Please see www.executivesoftware.com and look at the specifications of the Diskkeeper for Servers... there are others out there as well.
