Setup RAID 1 + individual drives
« on: December 09, 2008, 04:30:18 PM »

I went thru the DNS343's user manual but it is not clear to me about the setup.

1- I plan to have 3 drives. 2 will be used for RAID 1. The other will be used as individual drive.

2- Later on, when my budget allow, I will add another 4th drive as an additional individual drive.

Can I do step 1 & 2 with DSN-343 ?

I have had limited exposure to running more than one raid on the DNS-343, but the custom configuration will not allow me to attempt this with all 4 drives in the enclosure. It appears to want to create 1 actual and 3 mirrors.

Alas I am not in the position to pull 2 drives out and format the other 2 to test and see if this works.

Might be a good FEATURE SUGGESTION: Have a button to (Re)Configure selected drives (rather than just reconfiguring all)

Yes you can setup the unit as you stated with you drives and also when you receive you new drive xbzz.
