I have spent the past 8 years working at a small ISP, where I manage E-mail, DNS, Web, and Voip servers for a couple thousand clients.

I don't suppose there's any documentation on how to do this, is there?

Hmm, that's strange. IBM's ipssend program says that the controller really is in RAID 1E, and these drives are definitely all the same size. All drives are likewise online according to ipssend.

FYI, the RAID card reports that it's in RAID level 1E. Question has been updated to reflect this.

@WesleyDavid: Yes, it's the Built-in hardware raid on the 346; Specifically a ServeRAID 7k controller.

Yes, it's 4 disks, but I wouldn't call it 1 main and 3 mirrors. It appears to be the original RAID 1 mirror array striped across 4 disks like a RAID 5 array, or something. But I'm also a little fuzzy on this point.

comment How do I know if my Linux server has been hacked?
You're assuming that your attacker has some skill, wants to be stealthy in any way, and isn't purely interested in blasting out spam and adding your OC3 to a botnet. These days, you usually find out by the fact that massive amounts of spam are coming out of your server, usually on an overloaded system that shouldn't be. Most "hackers" are motivated by money these days.

comment ISC-DHCPD: why does it cease to work when the internet is down?
The DNS server specified in the DHCP configuration was a hostname, not an IP address, which doesn't work when the internet is down, because the DHCP server only hands out IP addresses to clients for DNS servers!

@Tim: I suppose the domain-name and domain-name-servers options are external resources, but shouldn't that just be what should be assigned to the client, and then let the client figure it out from there? Oh wait, the domain-name-servers are hostnames, not IPs...
