ix4-300d configure raid

Post by elgumby » Sat Dec 07, 2013 9:22 pm

This might be a newbie question, I just got this device. It comes setup by default at raid 5 for the 4 - 2 TB disks.

I want to setup two mirrored sets. 2 Tb mirrored sets resulting in a total of 4 TB split on two mirrored sets. I hope I am clear.

Is there a way to configure 2 sets of raid 1 volumes?

Thank you for your help

I am new here and with the ix4, so I wouldn't stop your research just yet, but as far as I understand it that is one of the weaknesses of our device. It can only create 1 volume with any of the raid options. You need to use shares and security to do any other separation.

... my Ix4 has been running for a total of 1.5 days, so I wouldn't stop looking just yet, but this is the way I interpret what I have read so far.
