  • Should i convert to Dynamic Disk

    I have a windows 2003 server running our domain. I never thought about this while building the server initially. But noticed the server is configured with basic disks. I have the option to convert to dynamic. Should i do this?.

    I have a server with 3 x146gb hard drives configured in a RAID 5 environment with a Perc 6i Scsi card.

    I remember once a role i worked in had software raid on the windows servers and the disks configured as dynamic.

    Should i configured the disk as a dynamic?. If so will it break the server?. At present its a Active directory/print/vpn server.

    IMHO no
    Dynamic Disks, like Software RAID, are a poor man's alternative to true hardware RAID, which you already have

        I have converted to dynamic disks several times and never had any issues!
