ML370G4 w/ 6402 raid controller question, stripe size recommendation

I am setting up a Proliant ML370G4 machine with an 6402 raid controller with 5 300 gig scsi drives in a raid 5 configuration.

This server will be running Netware 6.5.

What is the recommended stripe size to set the controller to when setting up this machine?

Thanks!

Not sure if you are using traditional or NSS, but I believe its the same.

If its traditional and you want block sub allocation, use 64.

Note its actually more important to get the block size and stripe size to match.

i recommend a large blocksize for novell, if possible 256 or 128!

u can set the stripsize on first initial setup, but please verify first if expansion doesn't lower your stripe size. i run inot this error some time ago, don't know if it is fixedd or not in latest PSP
