DELL. R-520. No RAID 6-Support? :/

Jump to solution

I bought this extreme server ( it is super ultra)) to use for Backing up stuff from Personal home computer. So its with great sadness i figure , RAID 6 doesnt even work? I have 4x450GB SAS for O.S, 4x2TB SATA for storage. However, in the PERC's BIOS setup , there is only RAID 0, RAID 1, RAID 5 and RAID 10 to choose from ? Ist RAID 6 unsupported by this server ? 

<EDIT. It has The PERC H310 controller if in recall.>

"extreme server" and "super ultra" ... NO idea what you are talking about there.

The SERVER supports RAID 6, but the CONTROLLER you have (H310) does NOT. For RAID 6, you will need the H710 RAID controller.

You need a top notch PERC H710p and not the low end el'cheapo H310 which doesnt offer battery backup cache and no RAID6/60.

Geez, I can't understand anything you type. I'll just make the assumption that what you said is incorrect:

The H3x0 and S3x0 controllers are LOW-END controllers. You would not be using them if you were even remotely concerned about performance.
