I’m about to build a new Exchange 2010 server on a HP DL360 G5 for our current domain, we already have a existing Exchange 2007 server. I was wondering what would be the best configuration of the disks.
I was planning to go with 2 x 146GB mirrored drives Windows Systems
2 x 146GB mirrored drives for the logfiles/system files
4 x 300GBdisks (no redundancy) for the databases.
The server will be protected by a backupexec server 2010, LCR not used.
I ask because I have had quite a few of ther HP SAS disks fail and Im wondering whether to create a Raid 5 with the 300GB disks and have the DB’s stored there.
