Depends. RAID5 has worst right performance, so it might be bad for something like mail. Generally I use RAID0+1 for mail and RAID5 for web data. Also, depending on your budget and/or concerns about failure/downtime, you might want to vinum mirror the entire base system disks. Be sure to have the root partition vinumed also. There is good documentation in the handbook and on gregs page. Actually all my nfs servers are "diskless" except for the data and boot off of boot servers using PXE. The boot servers have vinumed system disks. -steve _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
