I am looking at the Cisco supported hardware page and noticed the following server "HP DL320-G5 Server with Intel 3050 Xeon 2.13-GHz Processor" does not require a hardware RAID controller. Is this correct? Does 2000.4.5 or CUCM 6.x support software raid now?
Does anyone know if I put a hardware RAID controller in it, will it be supported by Cisco?
You can only use the MCS servers. All MCS servers have RAID 0+1 built into them. (mirrored drives) The lower end models do not have hot swappable drives.
I dont think TAC will support it if you put in a RAID controller. CUCM 6.x and the Cisco OS (IPCC, etc) are pre-built with the MCS configuration platforms on the disk to support the hardware from factory.

The below trick might come handy when you have to add a new node to a cluster but you don't have or is unsure of the security password for the publisher. This procedure has been around for ages.
