I am planning on building a new windows 2012 server for a client and I have no experience in doing so. I have built many linux servers for them and setting up software raid during the install is a trivial matter. I have been unable to confirm that the windows 2012 install process has an analogous process for setting up Storage Spaces during the install.
- Can Storage Spaces be used as an installation target (configured during setup?)
- Is it capable of mirror+stripe (RAID10)?
We have not ordered the hardware yet, so I'm looking for clarification.
