Hi, Expertise


I setup another ex2k server with disaster recovery in mind. I have 1 IDE
HD & 2 SCSI 


Partition 1 with Boot files & OS - Active partition

Partition 2 - nothing just Software Library - Extended Partition


SCSI Mirrored

Install Exchange files and Database, transaction log


My questions are:

1.      If IDE HD fails, (OS in IDE) can I reinstall OS again in another
IDE HD, and use disaster recovery to run exchange2k & restore the
backup; will this work?
2.      Will this reduce the server performance - Installing ex2k in
mirrored volume?
3.      Do I need to setup page files on Mirrored Volume?
4.      Or I'm Nuts? : (


I have only 60 users and IDE HD = 40GH/ SCSI = 18GB each


Pls, advice me how to achieve my Disaster recovery plan using above
mentioned hardware


Thanx in advance
