IBM / Lenovo x3650 M3 where I build a RAID 1 on two disks, a RAID 5 on five disks, and make a Global Hot Spare out of one disk. This x3650 M3 has an ServeRAID M5015 SAS/SATA Controllers for System x. This Is a prety good controller,, but I did not bother updating the firmware for this server or the controller,, witch would have fixed a lot of my problems... But we get there, at the end :-) Link to IBM x3650 M3 - http://amzn.to/1VMyRzL Link to Serveraid M5015 - http://amzn.to/23T8Ov5 Link to M5000 Advanced RAID 6, 60 Key - http://amzn.to/23T8Umm _________________________________________________________________ My PlayHouse is a channel where i will show, what i am working on.

  3. Excellent this video. I have two IBM X3650 servers and in one of them I have configured a raid 1 with two 300 GB disks. but the server is damaged and does not start. how can I mount these disks on another server without erasing the information that is vital to me. Thanks in advance for your comment.
