Hi, I have Dell R730 Server Machine with 4 600GB HDD. I am planning to deploy Windows Server 2012 R2. Please guide me how & what type of RAID must be installed for OS backup recovery during failover.
Not sure I understand the question, but a RAID 10 would almost always be your best bet here.
How can I bypass the Raid setting in DELL server Lifecycle Controller and implement and Raid setting in Window Server 2012 environment.
It all depends on the controller. Which RAID controller do you have? If you have an H730, you would be nuts to use Windows-managed RAID over hardware RAID. You just need to set the drives as non-RAID or leave them unconfigured.
I have R730 with four 600GB HDDs. R730 setup doesn't have non-RAID option and when i leave them unconfigured then the operating system doesn't detect the HDD during installation.
Because you need drivers:
