Windows server 2003 Tags: NAS / RAID Windows Server 2003 Servers Storage Last response: April 27, 2010 9:10 PM in Storage Share mojoh180 April 26, 2010 2:19:09 PM Hello, Have a windows 2003 server with 5 36GB drives. 36GB is currently unavailable and we're wondering if 72GB will work? Does it use the whole drive, or does it carve out 36GB on the rebuild and leave 36GB for something else? Thanks!

If so, are they raid 5? not sure what you mean "wondering if 72gb will work" - for what? mojoh180 April 27, 2010 9:01:07 PM Yes, that's correct. It is a dell server with 5 x 36GB PERC SCSI drives set to RAID 5. Can't find your answer ? Ask ! Get the answer gtvr a b G Storage April 27, 2010 9:10:08 PM OK, that's a little progress. What do you mean by "36GB is unavailable" - is 1 drive in the array degraded? Something else? Will 72GB work for what - something related to a rebuild? If you can explain a little more what you are trying to do, I'll try to help. Can't find your answer ? Ask !
