Hard Drive Configuration Requirements - Best Practice
Replibit requires a minimum of two hard drives.
Drive 1 = Operating System (minimun 250 GB)
Drive 2 = Storage Pool (backup storage)
Hard Drive Sizes: It is HIGHLY recommended to use drives no larger than 2TB
Best practice is to use a minumum of 5 hard drives. Use an hardware raid controller and build a mirror for the operating system.
Use Replibit's built in ZFS raid functionality for the Storage Pool. 3 drive minimun for raid 5. 4 drive minimum for raid 6
Present the Storage Pool drives to Replibit as JBOD (some raid controllers require a multiple raid 0 configuration).
If you will be using iSCSI for the storage pool, at least one 10Gb ethernet connection is required. Anything less is not supported.
Go to the "Manage Storage" tab in the Replibit GUI then select "un-used disks" to add drives to the Storage Pool
