Is there a way to check if raid(1) is working properly in cpanel? or maybe a ssh command or something?

cheers :)

Go on, have a guess
Depends entirely how it is implemented. If it's a software RAID set with md devices then you can use the mdadm tools to inspect your RAID sets.

its hardware raid .. i figured there must be a way to check it...otherwise how can you be sure your host set it up correctly? Could cost a lot of $$ and downtime! :(

Ask the datacenter to pull one of the harddrives out. If the site is accessible then it is working properly. :eek:

Obviously not a good idea to do that ;) You should have tools installed for your RAID hardware for inspecting your RAID sets. You should ask your server provider what they are and how you can use them to inspect the configuration.

I did this and they said there is nothing installed to check this and google'ing for something to install is my best bet ?

Does everyone take their hosts word that raid is working properly?
