I have no idea if this is even remotely possible, which is why I'm asking
Here's my scenario:
Let say you have two 250GB drives, two 500GB drives and two 1TB drives. You want to combine all these together to make one lump storage space of 1.75TB, however as such, you want each pair of drives to be in RAID1 with each other to offer some redundancy.
Is it possible?
I'm guessing not, and I know I can just have them all as separate shares, but I'd rather be able to map a single network drive to access all 1.75TB of space. I think I could do this with DFS, but not too sure exactly. The computer is running Server 2008 R2 Standard though, so any features in that can be used.
except that server 2003 IIRC doesn't have the storage manager that is in WHS. Honestly i would just live with the 3 drives. Since Dynamic disks is a less then ideal solution. You could possibly be safer using something like LVM in linux but then again it would be a bad idea. I would either slowly upgrade your disks so they are the same capacity and use RAID 10 (or 1+0). Or get something like a drobo.
