    I am looking through the documentation and don't see if there is a way to mirror the 2 drives in the Service Module.  Is there commands in the service module or in the vSphere Client that allows me to mirror the drives for redundancy?

    Jim,



    We are working on providing that feature as part of SRE-V however it¿s not available in Beta build. We will try to address this feature as part of FCS (first release) however there is a high probability that this feature will make it in maintenance release post FCS. Please let us know if this is a show stopper.



    Thanks,



    Anurag Gurtu

    yes, that would definitely be an issue.  We have redundant drives for all of our servers.  If we are looking to move the server into the router, we will still have that same requirement.

    This is a show stopper for our company as well. We need the fault-tolerance of raid 1 for our servers running on the SRE. The hard disk is the number one failing part on any computer and data loss is not good.

    I have provided this feedback to Eng and we will try to pull in this deliverable as fast as possible. For now I would request you both to continue your testing.
