Question about Intel SS4000-E (SS4000ENA)

1 Answer

Can I add additional drives to Raid 1 in order to expand storage?

I have the intel SS4000-E setup in Raid1 with 2x 500GB drives.
everything works fine.

i need to add addtional storage to the system, so i want to add another 2x 500GB or 2x1000GB to system.
can i just add the drives in the slot or does the system only allow 2 drives in Raid1?

I am not familiar with the specific model, but my guess is you can setup another separate logical vlume by using a RAID1 for the new disks. You will not be able to add the disks to the existing volume.

If there is no data, and the array supports it you can delete the existing volume and setup a RAID 5 instead, which will use all 4 disks, as long as they have the same capacity.

Windows server 2008 raid setup on a dell poweredge 2850


2 drives indicates they are RAID 1, which are mirrored. 2 x 36GB = 36GB. This is an industry standard config. If you make any changes you will lose the array making it RAID 0 (no RAID - no longer hot swap), and or the complete loss of OS / data.

Instead make another logical drive for data storage. You need three or four drives to set up as RAID 5, again an industry standard config.

Make sure to back up in all instances. GL

Need to increase the hdd size in a dell poweredge 1600sc with raid 1


You will not be able to increase the hdd size of a raid array, it's size is set. If you need more storage, you can add additional drives ( either in raid or standalone ) and use the new drive(s) for storage, but the original array will remain unchanged. The other option is to back up all of your data, install new drives and create a new array.

Model: HDD2H,does not detect the drive,took out the drive from caddy and plugged it in the PC, shows RAW file system. One of them can be detected by bios but says 0MB,second drive shows as 500GB. Dont know...


If it was a "striped" RAID setup, then "half" of each file on the disk-drive has been lost,
including half of each entry in the Table-Of-Contents, when you try to "browse" either disk-drive.
Both disks will be "nonsensical".

If it was a "mirrored" RAID setup, then one disk is probably 100% "good", and one disk is probably 100% "bad", i.e., you now have just ONE copy of each file, rather than having TWO identical copies. Buy a new 500GB (or larger) disk-drive, and use the RAID-software to "rebuild" the "mirroring" (by copying everything from the "good" disk to the "empty" disk) setup.

V have server 2003, in that v add a seperate hard disk for mirroring purpose. how to configure a mirror or raid?


1) to mirroring as a RAID, you require an additional HDD
2) right click on my computer, and select manage.
3) expand the "STORAGE" tree & go to disk management.
4) you have to convert your primary and additional both HDD into "DYNAMIC DISCS" by selcting your HDD and right click, and select convert into dynamic disks.
5) now create MIRRORED VOLUME after reboot.

Can a raid5 be expanded to include an additional disk on the dac960prl or must the raid be destroyed and re-created?


Hi,

As a rule of thumb, a raid 5 array can be expanded to include additional drives. This is done during the boot process and then going into your RAID controller setup. You would then go into the RAID configuration and add the new drive to the array. This was the simplified explanation but i think you get the idea.

Things to consider,
DO NOT remove the RAID array unless you dont care about losing data.
DO NOT try to add a smaller drive than what is currently part of the array.
When possible, the new drive should be identical to the existing drives, but I have added same size, same speed more than once and it will work.
All of the drives you want as part of the array must be on the same controller.

Hope this helps,
Brian

Can´t use INTEL SS4000-E to host the files of my database from SQL SERVER 2000


The SS4000-E  is a NAS storage server.  To the best of my knowledge it is not possible to put database files on a NAS.  They need to do on Direct Attached Storage.

Can't see the folders after restarting SS400-e


If you check their website, you will find:
Upgrading from a previous version of the firmware (to version 1.4) is a “data destructive” process.
it is strongly recommended that you first backup your existing data to another system in your environment. It is also recommended that you understand your current configuration of users, groups and shares to be able to recreate this under the 1.4 firmware.

Unable to connect


When the LED turns continuous amber colored , it means your RAID is not yet initialized.

- Install the Intel Storage system center console (ISSC) software from the accompagnied cd-rom

- Start the ISSC and have it discovering your storage device (make sure you are in the same subnet as your NAS device)

- Once it discovered the device click "Log on storage console" , it will open up a browser and have you login.

Firefox should work , I however assume you are maybe in a different subnet , and therefore cannot open the page.
If FireFox really doesn"t work , try using IE !
