I’m going to rebuild a DL 380 G5 to incorporate a raid 10 (raid1+0) logical drive. It’s for an Exchange 2007 server that has experienced two disk crashes in the last 3 months.
I’ll leave the 2 x 72gb drives as the mirrored C: drive and will move all the logfiles and exchange db’s onto an external disk (about 800gb) (150 users)
I intend to store the logfiles and db’s on the newly created raid 10 drive which wil use 6 x 300GB SAS drives, whcih should give me the 800Gb of disk space required.
I’m aware that you shouldn’t really store logfiles and db’s on the same drive but my only alternative would be to have another mirrored pair for the logs and then create a raid 5 with the remaining 4 disks to accomodate the current db’s.
