Hey all,

I read a while back that partitioning a Mirrored drive setup is not good practice and can lead to the RAID array being unstable.

Is this correct?

I am thinking of partitioning my 2x160gig RAID1 setup.



Thanks

you just need to make sure that both disks have identical partitions. A hardware RAID controller does that for you though :)

Thanks Guys,

It is a Hardware Mirror, setup. Both 160 giggers are hooked up to a PromiseTX2000 PCI Raid card.

Thanks again.

Also Hi EP and people. I found this place again while looking through a oooollllllldddd backup. I have filled over 10TB and was looking at my collection of antiques. Any bids on the 500Mhz Win 95 fix?
Any of the SP crew still out there?

Impressed you have kept this alive this long EP! So many sites have come and gone. :(

Just did some crude math and I apparently joined almost 18yrs ago, how is that possible???
