Hard disk

Hi all:

I just want to make a simple cuestion, Sap recommend's to use the hard disk Storage 80GB ATA 100/7200 rpm, is there any problem if the storage is SCSI or E-IDE UDMA 100 or any other type, is that important for the correct use os SBO???

thanks all

    I have had SBO running on many disk platforms from a slow 2Gb laptop disks to high end SCSI raid arrays. The disks don't alter the use of SBO (as long as you don't run out of space), only the performance.

    On the server, it is really the database engine that makes most use the disks rather than SBO itself. SQL Server performance recommendations normally include separate disks for data and log files. If you use faster 10K SCSI disks, you might see a small increase in performance in some of the database queries.

    Regards,

    John.

    Hi,

    No problem, works just fine on my laptop (ata66, 40 Gb). Runs great on client's system u-scsi320 in raid5.

    The point is SBO will not detect what it is running on. It will just talk to windows filesystem and to dabatase management system. So specs are to be considered as performance suggestions.

    Just my 0.02
