i AM PLANNING TO UPGRADE MY hp l54 SERVER TO MICROSOFT 2012-R2 ECCENTIALS.  i HAVE 4 - 2TB DRIVES AND 1-250 GB.  wHAT IS THE BEST WAY TO SET THESE UP.  I HAVE HAD THEM IN A RAD 5 SETUP USING STORAGE SPACE TO MANAGE THE SPACE.  ANY IDEAS WILL HELP.

250GB as the system disk, and the rest for data.

 

Do you have a specific goal in mind, or how you want to use the data?  RAID5 (parity) may be okay for the data on Storage Spaces, but it's going to be slow writes.

And have you considered an alternative to Storage Spaces? Such as StableBit DrivePool or Drive Bender?

 

But specifically, what do yo uwant to do with the server? And the storage?
