Disk Mirroring


K

kling0n

I have a Windows 2000 Server SP4

This server has 2 - 4 GB Drives and 6 - 9 GB Drives
The 2 - 4 GB Drives are mirrored system/pagefile drive (C:)

How can I set up the six 9 GB drives as (D:) 2- 27 GB Mirrored Partitions
or a 18 GB Software RAID5?
Is this possible? Any better software suggestions?

Thanks for any help in advance...

You can create one or two software RAID-5 volumes (one 45GB or two 18GB),
or three 9GB mirrors, or - of course - a mixture of both, but you cannot
both span and mirror in software using the same hard disks at the same
time.

This MS Knowledge Base article gives you the details how to set up a RAID-5
volume:
