I have an old CompaqML350 proliant (G2 server) of PIII,1.4GHZCPU,2GB RAM which has 3 no's of 36.4gb ultra3 scsi configured with raid5 with the logical drive space of 70gb Approx.
I am planning to use this machine as Backup server with the following.
1.Install External Tape Drive
2.Install symantec veritas backup exec Software.
3.Keep Users shared Folders Approx 40 user folders of 1GB allocation for each user.
I am planning to keep the existing raid5 for Operating system(Win2003serverOS),Backup software and Other Software's.
and Planning to add 2no's of 146gb hard drives and configure with mirroring for users shared folders to utilize the 146gb logical drive space.
Kindly suggest to go as per the plan or provide me with best recommended method.
Please note,currently this is a spare server with no data,hence i can do any hardware or software changes as per the requirement.
