Is it possible to use hardware raid on an external array enclosure? The external enclosure will be connected by fibre channel adapters to the server. The server is an IBM x3650. There will be two fibre adapters that will be connecting the server to the enclosure. The server will run Linux SLES 11.
If that's possible, is it possible to make the external array drives apart of the same hardware raid as the drives in the server? Would that even be a good idea?
Let me know if you would like more information.
