You may need to go into the "host bus adapter" bios and look at the options. When that screen comes up there is a keystroke to go look at the settings. I believe it is control H or perhaps F5-f8. Once you are in those menus it is simply a matter of creating two separate virtual disks. There may also be options to select the boot drive in there. Best of ...

It depends on how the drive failed. 72GB 10k disks haven't been manufactured for years, so I'd suspect that your disks are at least 6 years old... possibly 9 years... You may have a mechanical problem with the disk. The server you're talking about is an HP ProLiant DL360 G5. They were sold from 2005-2008. Running RAID 0 is a calculated risk. Your data was ...

I use ZFS for a multi-TB server and it has been rock solid. I used OpenIndiana to start with and have now moved to FreeNAS as it does what I need it to do. I would recommend using an LSI HBA card (9211-8i is a good base card) with SAS expanders (SuperMicro cases can be ordered with integral SAS expanders that are based on LSI chipsets). The LSI firmware ...

For lack of better information (like the actual models of your server(s)), I'll give a generic answer. This sounds like it could be a G5 ProLiant server... Perhaps a DL360 G5 or DL380 G5 with a Smart Array P800 RAID controller. Given this, all G5 and newer HP ProLiant 300-series servers contain onboard RAID controllers. Also, disk array metadata is ...

If I were dealing with that model/vintage of server (circa 2005-2008), I would probably make use of the existing setup... A few points: The 6-disk 3.5" backplane in a G5 ML350 is a dumb component. There's no RAID logic or SAS expansion built in. You can connect this backplane and cage to any RAID controller or SAS HBA, provided you use the right cabling. ...
