I have a new Dell R710 server with 6 hard drives, 2x146GB and 4x300GB. I am installing windows server standard 2008 R2.
Dell recommended a system partition of 146GB in Raid 1 using 2 drives and 600GB in RAID-10 using the other 4. Is this a good configuration?
I am inclined instead to use a 746GB configuration with all 6 drives in RAID-10.
What are your thoughts?
