Adding RAID 1 <or other options??> to current systems
Posted on 2004-11-02
Currently my Servers are on IDE HD's. I would like to RAID 1 them. Now on some of my servers I have 2 or 3 HD's...might this cause any issues/configiration problems? As I would like to have ALL Server related HD's setup for RAID 1. In order to do RAID 1, do all the HD's need to be the same model#'s?
Example<s> of current configuration:
IDE 30gig c:
IDE 70gig e:
IDE 20gig c:
IDE 60gig e:
IDE 10gig c:
IDE 74gig e:
Might it be possible/logical to RAID1 ALL of the above HD's? Also, is there possibly a solution to RAID them to another server case with more space and slide out HOT swap?
Thank You KINDLY
P.S I do infact have more Servers, but there are the most critical ones at this time.
