Want to add more RAID storage to Dell Poweredge 2600
Posted on 2006-12-01
I'm in a position where my exchange database has gotten pretty large and I want to add more storage as new drive to move the database to.
What would be the steps I'd take to go about this? I'm not too familiar with this particular unit. Right now there are 3 37 gig drives inserted into the machine, and in windows it shows a single 67 gig drive with 3 partitions. Raid 5?
What kind of drives do I need, and what is the reccomended configuration? Should I get two drives for a Raid 1 configuration?
Also, which kind of trays or inserts would I need to insert the drives? It looks like I have three available slots.
