I have a p2000 G3 with (8) 450 GB disks. I was thinking of a RAID 50 using 4 disks in one RAID set and the other 4 disks in the other RAID set. I am ordering an extra to use for a spare. When I set it up, since it is one RAID 50 vDisk it is assigned to controller A (it shows automatic but I assume it goes with A for the first vDisk). I will be running a few VMs off of this storage so I thought it would be better to have some on controller A and some on controller B but I don't have the disk space to create (2) RAID 50 vDisks.
Any suggestions on the most efficient set up appreciated.
