I have bought the above server for one of my customers.
Together with the server i have ordered a LSI 9261-8i RAID card and 8 Seagate 500GB Hybrid SATA hard disks and 2 extra 4GB DIMMs.
I have installed everything and i have configured the LSI card in RAID 6. By the way i decided to use the automatic configuration with redundancy.
I have installed windows 2008 R2 standard edition and the system is extremely slow. What do i mean by that.
When i type or i try to move the mouse the system freezes for a few seconds. Then works again. Then freezes, works again, etc.
I have changed the configuration and i configured the LSI in RAID 60. Installed the operating system and same thing again.
I have tried every imaginable RAID configuration and same thing happens.
I sent everything back to CISCO except the hard disks and they told me that there was a problem with the LSI card and the server and they sent me a new one (It took them more than a month to send me a new server and a new LSI card).
As soon as i got them back i installed everything again including the operating system and same thing again.
My client gets really impatient and i dont know what else should i do in order to make the server usable.
I forgot to mention that i have tried to use non hybrid hard disks but same thing happens.
