Need some quick advice here. We are trying to deploy a DPM 2007 server in our organization to backup/protect our SQL 2008 DB server, app servers, Domain controller etc.
We have setup a box with 6 1.5 TB drives for this. We created 1 Virtual disk with a total of 6.8 TB in a RAID 5 config. We created a 300 GB partition and installed windows 2008 on it and then install DPM on it. However, DPM is unable to see the rest of the space. We checked around to find a reason for the problem and found this :
That seems to imply we need to create a separate Virtual Disk in our Raid for the OS/DPM installation from where we intend to do the storage.
Assuming that statement is correct (please correct me if it isn't) I guess we need an external solution to add 2 drives to this server in a RAID 1 config to put the DPM/OS on.
Can anyone please recommend something for this? There is no more space.in the server to add more internal drives and we can't waste 2 of the 6 internal drives for just the OS/DPM installation.
