Are you recommending using software RAID 5?

If the answer to the above is Yes...

Are you nuts?

I recommend you with the followings:
        1 - Use Windows 2K Advanced server with service pack 2
        2 - Use the active directory to create the mailboxes
        3 - Use Exchange 2000 with service pack 2
        4 - Use the RAID5 and you know you have to have at least 3 hard
drives.
        5 - Use the storage group method

Regards,

Ammer

We use Exch 5.5 on WinNT on a SCSI RAID5 set.  No major performance issues.

E-mail is used heavily, but we only have 50 mailboxes

We are planning to change our current server with a brand new dual processor
Dell server with 1 ghz Ram and three Hard Drives that will be setup as RAID
5. I have read about RAID 5 that it's proper for systems where the
performance is not of importance and with few read operations. Anyone has
any idea if it's gonna be appropriate for Win2k and Exchange2k ? Any info
would be appreciated.
