If I understand your statement correctly. The RAID5 drives will be considered as one large logical drive and they are setting it up as one mount point. With the RAID5 configuration you loose the ability to use each individual physical drive separately. 4 drives of 10 GIG each in RAID5 configuration will make a 30 GIG logical drive. 10 GIG is used for the parity information

We are planning to move our database to Sun 4500 with A1000(RAID 5).Our system admin group has been
working on this setup and I was told that the A1000 which is having 4 disks will be seen as just as
one mount point after configuration.Is this the correct way of confuguration.Don't we see each disk
of A1000 as different mount point.

Thanks
Ravindra
