Not being able to install the OS is a bit of a frustrating start! We have a slogan learned through years of maintaining servers that drives born together tend to die together.
CERC controllers are nice, but pretty out of date. Looking for some advice on to how best improve fault tolerance and possibly disk performance in this oldish Dell PowerEdge And you are correct, the 2 drive fault tolerance is only true if the 2 drives are in opposite mirrors. If I decide to go RAID 5, I’d assume I can just install the new array, image the old array to the new one, then remove the old drives and install new ones in their physical place as hot spares for the new array.
I don’t see upgrading the controller as an option. I’ll be contracting my services back to them and want to shore up reliability as much as possible. Yeah, I’m really starting to think the performance isn’t an issue. PEDual Xeon Irwindale 3.

Also consider just throwing in another drive as a spare and then putting the rest of the money toward a server upgrade down the road. I’m leaning towards a new RAID 5 array for ease of transition since performance isn’t a huge issue, but I wanted to get the opinion of those more experienced than I.
Mainly, it is up to your personal preference.

rqid Obviously some less than ideal things going on here, no hot spare, backing up to a consumer drive, etc. Raid 10 might make Kerio perform better though.
Submit a new text post. Now I’m wondering if I should just go back to Windows with it, since it doesn’t look like this hardware is supported by Ubuntu.
I think the biggest thing you could for reliability is adding a hot spare. Boiled down, it essentially provides Word and Excel documents to 20 people with maybe emails total per day.

Log in or sign up in seconds. This isn’t a production server or anything, just an old cast off I was able to get my hands on and wanted csrc try messing around with Ubuntu for the first time. I can’t risk a second drive failure if I can’t get on site for a few days.
As long as you keep on top of your RAID monitoring, this should give you plenty of speed, and security. Any ideas on how I might be able to get Ubuntu installed on this thing? My goal is to provide a few days of safety should a drive die and I’m unable to get on site within 24 hours. Newer drives will likely have a little better performance but the users won’t notice it.
