Operating System on Second Connector?
Feb 6, 2012, 7:52 AM
We have a Dell server with a Perc H700 controller
There appears to be two connectors in the server, 0 and 1
Connector 0 has four drive bays
Connector 1 has two drive bays
Will the following setup work?
Connector 0 - Four 300GB disks in a RAID 10 for SQL databases
Connector 1 - Two 146GB disks in a RAID 1 for Operating System
Obviously I can't use connector 0 for the RAID 1 OS otherwise I would not be able to make up the RAID 10 from the remaining four 300gb disks as they would be on different connections.

Yes, in the BIOS you should be able to set which is the boot drive.
