I have an IBM server with a 300gb hard drive, and apparently that's as large as it'll go (SAS). IBM have said they don't make a bigger hard drive for this server (x3200) and won't support anything we try and squeeze in there.
We have an Exchange database on our SBS 2008 server that is 269gb, leaving about 10gb of free space and it's being eaten rapidly. I've read that you CAN use a NAS for the databases if it's connected via iSCSI, i'm just a little concerned about corruption / speed issues.
Everyone is connecting with cached mode, so the reads / writes to the database shouldn't be as intense as online mode, but having the database connected via the same connection that the rest of the network is running on freaks me out a bit. Can anyone confirm it's AOK ?
Appreciate the help.
