Dependable DASD - Getting Out of the Cabnet and Away from Sun Drives
Posted on 2006-05-09
We're running an E450 with all of the internal drive bays populated (20 total). The config is RAID 0. Lately, we've been having issues with the drives getting our of sync. Metastat comes up with "drive needs maintenance" - we then run metareplace to sync up the drives.
This has happened a bunch since we added some drives.
We're looking into the firmware on the Sun drives that we purchased, but I was wondering if we could move away from the "in the cabnet" Sun scsi drives to something like a rack mounted seta nas or something with readily available, hot swappable high performance drives in a raid config that the Sun E450 will recognize and be able to utilize.
