I am going to order a new exchange server soon and want advice on the RAID setup. My current plan is as follows. Is my idea sensible?
This will be a single server housing the Mailbox, CAS and Hub transport roles. We're not using Unified Messaging.
Server is a HP DL380 G7 and has 8 disk drive slots.
Disks 1 & 2 (146GB) - RAID1, Operating System (Windows Server 2008 R2)
Disks 3, 4, 5 & 6 (300GB) - RAID5, Exchange Databases
Disks 7 & 8 (72GB) - RAID1, Exchange transaction logs
