Re-Synching problem with RAID5 Arrays in windows 2003 server

I have some drives in an external array box. When I create a RAID5 array it works fine. But when I move the drives to other slots or another Server computer with the same Docking bay/External Array then windows Server 2003 starts to re-Synch the drives.

If we do this with RAID 0 it works perfectly and can be moved around without any problems. The whole concept of this hardware is to provide mobility for data. I will look at going to a Hardware RAID card.... but if possible I would like to get it working correctly using Software RAID.

I beleave RAID5 needs all 3 disks to be present and maybe even on the same channels as they where set up for really id depends on the capability of your software or hard card. Good Luck!

Thank you,

Array


I'm going to guess that your question is about hard disk arrays

There are several uses for arrays and there are different level of arrays

Here is a link detailing the levels and uses for hard disk arrays:

To merge two arrays A and B in java source code.


Do you need them to be sorted after the merge and are they already sorted? If not, then what you can do is create a temporary third array which will set the half of third array equal to the first array, and then set the set half equal to the second array. If they need to be sorted, I can help too but you need to tell me

public class ArrayMerge
{
public static int arr1[] = new int [20];
public static int arr2[] = new int [20];

public static void main()
{
setScores(arr1);
setScores(arr2);
printScores(arr1);
printScores(arr2);
printScores(merger(arr1,arr2));
}

public static void setScores(int a[])
{
for(int x = 0; x<a.length; x++)
{
a[x]= (int)(Math.random() * 100)+1;
}
}

public static void printScores(int a[])
{
for(int x = 0; x<a.length; x++)
{
System.out.print(a[x] + " ");
}
System.out.println();
}

public static int[] merger(int a1[], int a2[])
{
int a3[] = new int [(a1.length + a2.length)];

for(int x = 0; x<a1.length; x++)
{
a3[x]=a1[x];
}

for(int x = 0; x<a2.length; x++)
{
a3[x+a2.length]=a2[x];
}
return a3;
}
}

Please explain the working of this code


It's a Java http server (webserver) that serves random "prices" if they match a search string.

Well here is an explaination:

private static String[] symbols = {"DELL", "INTC", "MSFT", "ORCL", "SUNW"};
These are search strings

private static Random rnd = new Random();
This generates a random number

private static Charset cs = Charset.forName("UTF-8");
This is the charset that the http server uses

ServerSocketChannel server = ServerSocketChannel.open();
Create a new server

server.socket().bind(new InetSocketAddress(8055));
Bind the http server to port 8055

The rest is handling the request and processing it

But here:
if(Arrays.binarySearch(symbols, symbol) >= 0)
response = "Price is " + (1000 + rnd.nextInt(9000)) / 100.0;
else
response = "Price not available";
channel.write(cs.encode("HTTP/1.0 200 OK "));
channel.write(cs.encode("Content-type: text/plain "));
channel.write(cs.encode(response));
channel.close();
}
It sees if the string input matchs: DELL INTC MSFT ORCL SUNW.

(private static String[] symbols = {"DELL", "INTC", "MSFT", "ORCL", "SUNW"};)
If so, it gives a price based on a random number.
(
response = "Price is " + (1000 + rnd.nextInt(9000)) / 100.0;)
Or else
It says "price not available"
then it gives a html header to end the error message.

Hope I helped you :)
Gook luck

How yahoo people are maintainig their servers


In stead of explaining how powerful their servers are. I would like you to understand how do they build such powerful server.
Google, yahoo and microsoft are giants of the internet these days. millions of people hit their servers every day. they build the solutions around DNS, NLBs, Failover clusters, high speed disk arrays and so on. The internal communications happen over a high speed network.
