E200i with BBWC supporting two Raid 5s?

E200i with BBWC supporting two Raid 5s?

I would like to know if the E200i with BBWC, will support two logical drives with 3 HHDs of 700GB under a RAID 5? Thanks!

Hi Vinicio,

yes with the BBWC you will be able to make RAID 5 logical drives. E200 supports up to 32, so there will be no problem.

hi

remember e200 supports RAID 5 if it has 128 MB as BBWC

"NOTE: RAID 5 is available with the 128MB BBWC option on the Smart Array E200i."


if you have 64 MB you won't be able to do it you will need to buy the part

Yes, I know it supports Raid 5 with 128 BBWC. They main problem I´m having is that when creating two Raid 5, using 3 x 700GB SATA drives, after rebooting from ACU, second logical drive fails... using Novell. Would be a software limitation?
