RAID 10 configuring...
Posted on 2010-01-03
Our server is currently configured with 1 hard drive. We want to move down the RAID path and from what I've seen online RAID 10 would be the best option. The motherboard supports it Supermicro X7SBL-LN2. From what I've seen online I would need to re-install the server is this the case? Basically settings up the RAID 10 fisrt then installing windows server.
I dont really see that as an option as I have everything setup and currently working fine and dont really want to re-install everything, as I would need to setup printers, active directory, and folder permissions.
Is there another way?
P.S I planned to user somthing like 4x 500 GB Seagate ST3500418AS Barracuda 7200.12 this ok or I need a special type of drive?
