Ok, so basically you have a separate server to blow things on. Ok, I took it a step simpler and have a spare pair of HDDs for the RAID mirror. I pull out the production ones and put in the blanks and give it a try. Now, my problem though, is large data arrays. I have a server that has a 200GB RAID array on it. Granted I could set up a cheapo box with a 200 GB IDE drive to simulate. Think that is a good idea? ----- Original Message ----- From: "Walden H.
