you have your raid mis-configured if
- if you cannot do hands off reboot when any of the disk dies
you have your system properly configured if
- the system should still work flawlessly even if a disk died
and keeps working till the 2nd disk dies, than you lost
( it should be able to work w/o kb, w/o monitor )
- your gamble is that you know exactly when your 1st disk
died in the array and have enough time to replace it with
a new disk ... no touching of cables .. no opening the box ..
no keyboard touching other than typing "reboot"
