Smart Arry E200i Disk Distribution

Hi, I have a ML350G5 with 6 SAS Disks, i want to have 3 Logical Drives with raid 1.

The Raid controler has 2 ports(I dont know if the ports are totaly independent, but they have separate cables), and I want to know your opinion about the best disk distribution i the bay.

Logical Drive 1 - Phisical Disk 1 and 4 (to be connected to 2 diferent ports.
or
Logical Drive 1 - Phisical Disk 1 and 2 (to be connected to same port.

Logical drive 2 and 3 would be the same philosophy (the best one)

Re: Smart Arry E200i Disk Distribution

there are no differencies.
the throughput of each controller's port is 1200MBytes/sec.

4 hdd of 2,5" 10K will not fill-out the channel.
never.

Bye.
