Raid recommendations
« on: April 29, 2009, 01:04:40 pm »
I am about to install a software raid 5 array in my core. Still running 710.

Given that we are moving towards lmce 810 ... will my data be safe for the migration or should I be looking at an external NAS solution?

I hope you are using the Web Admin to create the RAID.

You will be able to carry over your Software RAID. And in 0810, you will have even more functionality in the web admin for your RAID.

Yes, I wouldn't do it any other way :)

I have an existing 1TB raid one array which I am removing (in web admin) and replacing with a raid five using an additional 1TB drive.

That's great news. Thanks for the info.

Your Karma just grew. Another few years and you'll be back to zero.
