Recommended Posts

Got a 120GB ssd for my VM, and it works great. Now Im wondering, how should I proceed if I want to run two 120GB ssd in raid0 to get some extra speed? Running Hyper-V Server 2012R2.

Are you running the HP bios or a modified one?

If you are running it off the single SATA port on the motherboard with the factory bios it is running at SATA I speed. A modified bios will take that port up to SATA II speed. If you are using one of the swappable bays, it is at SATA II. What OS are you running?

The modded one.

 

I am running Hyper-V server 2012R2.  Core. :-) I know how to make softwareraid, but not hardware raid. That I think what I am looking for is.

To use the System Board RAID you will have to have your RAIDed drives in the main drive bay and you'll have to reset your modded BIOS to the optimized defaults.

 

HP has a Nice Guide on how to Enable SATA RAID and Create Logical Disks on the N40L & N54L https://h20565.www2.hp.com/portal/site/hpsc/template.PAGE/public/psi/mostViewedDisplay/?aid=38293&aoid=35252&javax.portlet.begCacheTok=com.vignette.cachetoken&javax.portlet.endCacheTok=com.vignette.cachetoken&javax.portlet.prp_efb5c0793523e51970c8fa22b053ce01=wsrp-navigationalState%3DdocId%253Demr_na-c03004814-1%257CdocLocale%253Den_US&javax.portlet.tpst=efb5c0793523e51970c8fa22b053ce01&jumpid=ba_r329_hhoaffiliate&pbid=TnL5HPStwNw&siteid=TnL5HPStwNw-HRLN62TmCGFIxpYmy96Beg&sp4ts.oid=4248009&ac.admitted=1385859498228.876444892.492883150

 

I covered how I used that to set up a RAID0 for my OS using VelociRaptors in Bays 1 & 2 http://homeservershow.com/forums/index.php?/topic/6113-video-sound-cards-for-n40ln54l-microserver/?p=68809  and http://homeservershow.com/hp-proliant-n40l-microserver-hdmi-video-card-hss-meet-2013.html
