windows volume containing local and SAN disks
Posted on 2011-04-19
I have a Windows 2008 file server which has internal SCSI drives, I have a data volume on the server which is nearing capacity. We recently got a NetApp FAS iSCSI storage array and presented some storage to the file server.
I would like to extend the existing data volume onto the new iSCSI storage, the benefit of doing this would be that I wouldn't have to move any data around and the existing volume would be given extra space. I am after some advise on the benefits and drawbacks of having a data volume span accross internal drives and remote iSCSI drives. Thanks.
