Can you use SATA for Exchange 5.5???
Posted on 2007-10-18
Ok, a real simple question.
My Exchange server is dieing. Database maybe corrupt. I have all the info to try to save it.
My question is, can I run it on SATA drives? Currently on a 2.8Ghx Xeon, 2gig of RAM, all SCSI.
I want to use for the time being, Core 2 duo E6400, 2x 80 gig SATA RAID 1 for the boot, and 2 x Raptors in RAID 1.
Will this work until my new server arrives? ? I have about 50 users. I know with IDE there is major lag. SATA I'm not too sure with.
Please time is a big issue. I need an answer about the hardware, not about how to fix it. and restore the database. I know how to do all that. Again, time is a big thing. I need to start now, to recover. I'm in the process in starting the new server with SATA drives.
