I have a server HP ML310, I installed Linux SUSE on it and I have Oracle 11 on this system. I wanted to give backup from the system but in some situations it can't copy files and I recieve an error : file corrupted! I formatted the HDD and install Linux and windows 2003 on it for several times , it doesn't have problem while formatting or installing windows or Linux. So I think that the problem is not with the hardware, but I'm not sure. Could anyone please help me ?
I dunno will it be the answer to your question, but I'm suggesting you passionately to try the next:
Install Windows, use some iSCSI SAN solution - it'll help you to backup and to comfortably manage your storage. For test you can try StarWind Free.
