Dell Poweredge NF500 Storage Server
Windows Storage Server 2003 x64 edition
Raid 5 (maybe)
750 GB SATA drives (5)
My question is that I know you cannot have bigger than 2 TB on a basic disk. This is fine because I can just setup everything up as dynamic so we can use all 4 TB of space (or 3 something after a RAID 5), but I don't believe that I can have Server 2003 on a Dynamic disk...or am I wrong?
I believe that I am looking at having a separate physical drive configuration for the OS and then using the big drives in a RAID 5 for data. I have no problem installing everything on one big Virtual Disk with a RAID 5 but then that leaves some questions as to what happens to the OS install?
