    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 wanted to confirm that a Smart Array P400 can handle raid 10 (raid1+0) and that 6 x 300Gb drives will give me roughly 900gb of space.

    I intend to store the logfiles and db’s on the newly created raid 10 drive.

    Im aware it doesn’t leave me much space for growth but there will be another new mail server implemented soon so I’ll even out the users then.

    Any recommendations before I start?

    Thanks in advance
