Losing multiple disks from the same RSS group

Can some one please let me know if I will lose data on VRaid 1 LUNs if 2 disks fail at the same time from the same RSS group. Has anyone has expierenced this at all.

Also any idea how long a 300GB disk with 60% occupancy take to rebuild in the event of a disk failure.

Thanks

The answer to this is - possibly. It depends on which disks fail.

I've had two disks fail simultaneously within the same RSS. Fortunately for me, the VRAID-1 LUNs survived, because the two disks that failed weren't "paired". The VRAID-5 LUNs in the group weren't so lucky...

Cheers,

Rob

Re: Losing multiple disks from the same RSS group

Hello,

it depends on... Principally you can lose 50% of the disks in a only with VRAID 1 filled diskgroup. But only in the case, that only one disk in a pair fails. For VRAID 5 you can theoretically lose one disk per RSS.

The time for a rebuild of a failed disk depends on the number of disks that are involved in this rebuild. A good rule of the thumb is 15 minutes for one gigabyte.
