    I am wondering if anyone knows if v8 server works with RAID1 and RAID10?

    I am using Ghost and when I restore images (see below) back to the 2650, i lose the RAID configuration and only get back the c: drive


    The configuration is
    PE 2650 and PV 220s RAID configuration

    D1 c: = - Raid 1 Windows 2003 Server and Oracle 9i - 2
    drives
    D2 e: = - Raid 1 Archive Logs - 2 drives
    D3 f: = - RAID10 Oracle DB files (in PV 220s) - 4 drives
    D3 g: = - RAID10 Oracle Redo Logs (in PV 220s) - 6 drive

    thanks

    Hello Sjn --

    Thank you for your interest in Acronis software!

    Well, Acronis True Image Server 8.0 does support RAID in general, but with some controllers there are/might be some problems, so I'd advice to check first with the trial version of the software whether your RAID is recognized properly.

    Thank you.

    Hi Acronis Support,

    Does the trial version allow you to perform a full restore?
    In order to truly test if True Image 8 is compatible with a user's RAID setup, one would need to test both the backup and restore.

    Hello Devinco --

    Actually, it is not possible to test a restorem but generally of you get to the "Proceed" button (so all before it went well) it's 99.9% chance that the full version will do the restore correctly.

    In that case we can discuss a possibility for providing a full version for the testing purposes.

    Thank you.
