server Compaq Proliant 3000 diskraid

Dear Friends,

I have a server Compaq Proliant 3000 with 4 hotswapable hard drives of capacity 9*4 in RAID 5 environment . I can use at this moment only 18gb and no more. How can I use 27gb of this diskraid? I will be greatful for helping me in this scenerio.

Best Regards,

Hi,

If we are configuring Raid 5 the estimated free space should be 75%.
9GB * 4 = 36 GB
So we should be having 27 GB
SCU should be using 38-40 MB Approx
So, in the current condition we need to install the ACU from web site check configuration for raid and hdd free space. It should be estimated around 25-26 GB of free disk space.

Dogan,

Try using CPQONLIN.NLM. That will let you look at the configuration of the actual array, not what NetWare is seeing. I bet you have a spare configured. That would account for you only seeing 18GB of disk as you would only have 3 disks actively being used in RAID 5. And that would give you 18GB of usable space.

Hi Dogan,

My point was .
We have the apce there. but are not able to see it. ( if i am right ) Then use some utility which is independent from your Novell to confirm the Space Utilization on Novell box. It can be smart start cd which should be acu/adu which will tell us about utilized space in raid. Where as i am at home now i will send a snapshot of same which we can see from smartcd without nos involvment.

Since i am not a expert in Novel
