hello, i bought a dell server r530, raid 5, 8Gb ram , 4 Discs with 40 Terra.
i´m using it with freenas, it works fine as long as i dont copy data from users.
in the grafic is just freenas running, no users are copyng data.
the grafic from network goes up and down, as if the disk cant work fine
could somebody give me some advise?
I would agree with Leandro; when using FreeNAS, use software raid (ZFS).
To do so, set the PERC to HBA mode and reinstall FreeNAS. Then use the web interface to pick your raid type and have FreeNAS handle the raid part.
