I am preparing a SLES server with OES to take over from out main Netware 6.5SP8 server. I'm going to using an existing server that has 3 SATA drives in a RAID 5 configuration (old Netware server). In discussing the storage configuration with the Dell experts they recommended adding a fourth drive which is the max supported by the controller. Then just build one big RAID 5 drive, put the SLES in a partition and make the rest an NSS partition for OES. I have two questions:
1. I thought I had read that putting SLES and OES on the same physical drive is not recommended "Bad things can happen". How does RAID 5 effect this decision. What would the best approach be?
2. Can I run OES2SP3 on SLES 11?
Thanks for your help.
