Proper drive setup for a domino server
Posted on 2004-08-25
I’m new to Lotus Notes/Domino and I was asked to build a new Domino server for our company. I’m not sure what is the most efficient hard drive setup is for this application. I was going to use a RAID 1 + RAID 5 setup (RAID 1 for O.S and RAID 5 for data). Is that setup good for Domino? I’ve been reading that RAID 5 isn’t good to use for Domino’s transaction logs. Would a RAID 1 plus RAID 1 setup be better? I could keep the O.S. and data on one mirrored set and the transaction logs on the other. Could any of you Lotus guru’s tell me the best drive setup for this application?
