we have a client with a Dell T610 domain controller and file server + active directory all in one server. Its out of warranty and the o/s is 2003 server.(we had advised updating the warranty ...but alas)
The raid 6 setup has started failing , we had 2 hard drive failures , we have bought replacement 1tb sas drives (72k)
we have inserted one and the raid is rebuilding...dead slow but is working. at the rate its rebuilding it may take 2-3 days
The customer wants us to build a secondary dc now and move active directory across. effectively to another server on the domain
My question to Experts , is ion their experience what do they recommend ..? leave the rebuild ?
