New Server, Drive RAID/Partitioning Assistance Please
Yay, I finally got a new server. It's a beast. Dell 2950 III 2x Xeon 5420, 8gb RAM, and 6x SAS 146gb drives. I also get to move up to full Red Hat 5.2 Enterprise 64-bit.
I currently have about 60gb in /opt/zimbra with 250 users. I was thinking 2 drives using RAID 1 for 146gb as / and the remaining 4 drives using RAID 10 at 292gb for /opt/zimbra/store. Realistically that gives me 136gb and 272gb on two volumes.
Now with those 6 drives, is my thinking right with two volumes? If not, what would be the best partitioning scheme?
