DL380 G3 & MSA30 Disk Configurations

I will be putting in a new server that requires different disk configurations. ie 2 disks RAID1, 5 disks RAID5, 2 disks RAID1, 2 disks RAID1 etc. Can multiple disk sets be configured on the same scsi channel or would I be using a channel per configuration thus limiting the number of possible configurations.

Hope that makes sense, this is quite new to me.

Re: DL380 G3 & MSA30 Disk Configurations

If you happen to get a dual channel array controller/dual channel disk shelf... it won't matter. You can create Disk Arrays across the channels of a single controller.

You can not, however, create arrays across channels of DIFFERENT controllers.

Your config will be fine using a single controller card.

Hi,

I am sure on a single channel also, I can have multiple raid configuration.

For example dl 380 g3 configure with single channel i can have total 6 hdd 2 unde raid 1 other 4 under raid 5.
