2xRaid 1 for 2x500Gb+2x2Tb?
« on: April 08, 2010, 11:12:21 AM »

Dear all,

Does anyone know a way to create two Raid1 volumes with different sizes?
I have two (identical) 500Gb disks and two (identical) 2Tb disks. When I try to configure a Raid1 setup, it seems that the 343 considers 4x500Gb to be part of the raid. The remaining 3Tb from the two 2Tb disks ends up i a JBOD volume.

I (of course) would want two Raid1 volumes with 500Gb and 2Tb.

I find this behaviour a wee bit strange...
Any brilliant ideas?

Configuring the drives as RAID1 the unit will set the top 2 bays as one RAID1 volume and the bottom 2 bays as another RAID1 volume.

Place only the first 2 drives in the unit (the 500GB drives). Format them as Raid 1. Remove the drives, and replace them with the two 2TB drives. Format them as raid 1. Move those 2 drives to slot 3 and 4 and put the 500GB drives back in slot 1/2. You should have two Raid 1's after powering the unit back on.
