Configuring RAID 5 Dell Poweredge 2950
Posted on 2011-03-17
Can someone please help me with configuring RAID 5 in a Dell Poweredge 2950?
I have 2 drives configured RAID 1 (running fine.)
I add 4 drives (2TB each), thinking that I should have about 6TB, but when I went into Windows 2008 Disk Manager to initialize, it only showed 3725.00, instead of 5,8xx (6TB).
This is what I have in the RAID configuration:
Disk Group 1 (this is for RAID 5)
under Physical Disks, I have 3 drives.
under Hot spares, I have 1 drive (Dedicated)
I must did something wrong, experts, please help.
