P2000 Disk Setup


I've created my Hyper-V Cluster with a P2000 SAS and all seems good so far but would like some advice on how I should go abouts settings the disks up, this cluster is going to be used mainly by System Center products (SCCM, SCOM, SCOR etc), what would be the best RAID to use, how many disks\vdisks should I create?

We would run with RAID 6 + 1 hot spare.

LUN 0: 1.5GB - Use for Disk Witness
LUN 1: 49.9% - Bound to controller 1
LUN 2: 49.9% - Bound to controller 2

Add the two larger LUNs to Cluster Shared Volumes.

Thanks, we currently have 24x 300Gb SAS 10K disks, I was thinking of doing the following:

2 RAID5 Volumes

Is the setup 3Gbps SAS and thus limited to 2TB LUN sizes?

We would do one large array with that array carved up as indicated.
