na, no logs.

i am using a software raid not hardware so its not that big of an issue.

Western Digital manufactures desktop edition hard drives and RAID Edition hard drives. Each type of hard drive is designed to work specifically as a stand-alone drive, or in a multi-drive RAID environment.

If you install and use a desktop edition hard drive connected to a RAID controller, the drive may not work correctly. This is caused by the normal error recovery procedure that a desktop edition hard drive uses.

Note: There are a few cases where the manufacturer of the RAID controller have designed their cards to work with specific model Desktop drives. If this is the case you would need to contact the manufacturer of that controller for any support on that drive while it is used in a RAID environment.

When an error is found on a desktop edition hard drive, the drive will enter into a deep recovery cycle to attempt to repair the error, recover the data from the problematic area, and then reallocate a dedicated area to replace the problematic area. This process can take up to 2 minutes depending on the severity of the issue. Most RAID controllers allow a very short amount of time for a hard drive to recover from an error. If a hard drive takes too long to complete this process, the drive will be dropped from the RAID array. Most RAID controllers allow from 7 to 15 seconds for error recovery before dropping a hard drive from an array. Western Digital does not recommend installing desktop edition hard drives in an enterprise environment (on a RAID controller).

Western Digital RAID edition hard drives have a feature called TLER (Time Limited Error Recovery) which stops the hard drive from entering into a deep recovery cycle. The hard drive will only spend 7 seconds to attempt to recover. This means that the hard drive will not be dropped from a RAID array. While TLER is designed for RAID environments, a drive with TLER enabled will work with no performance decrease when used in non-RAID environments.

yeah i know its not about the Samsung's but it holds true, the original idea was to use the WD green drives and disable the head parking.

Seriously though, I've been a fan of racks in all sorts of apps. Stereo, computer, ect.

I've even asked over in the home audio section about a rack for all my home audio gear and I get blown off like some tard.

I like the organization and clean workability it provides. You see what you have and how you want the flow to go. More like being an architect.


Which it is technically.



I'd love all my gear to be on one rack. Because I still have audio stored on tape (yes it may be old fashioned now but WTF) I still have dual tape players and external equalizers to play with the mix.



God I feel old all of the sudden.



Again lol.

what is your budget for a rack, i may be able to help, and do you want a 4 post like mine or a 2 post like they use for phone systems or shallow network closets.

Looks awesome!

I'd love to build one just for the experience you'd learn just from messing around with one.

Does your job include something along with computers?

I just recently got a job as a IT Help Desk person. Really excited for it!

10 2U shelves, 10 4U shelves, or just 10U? 10 2U would be 20U rack aka half rack.

this is a 12U with wheels, handels and sideing not included. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16816707015&cm_re=rack_mount _enclosure-_-16-707-015-_-Product

this is the newer / smaller rack HP makes http://www.server-rack-online.com/292302-b22.html

can put casters on this one http://www.server-rack-online.com/3001e-2432.html

or this odd thing, more like Mobil hot spare system. http://www.compuvest.com/Desc.jsp?iid=1035933
