Default S8300 SSD vs HDD

My question is can someone give a detailed explanation of how LINUX and CM function between the SSD and HDD on an S8300 c / d?
  1. Are the translations stored on both SSD and HDD?
  2. Which device is used to boot, SSD or HDD?
  3. If your SSD is dead, can you still recover using the HDD?

This is related... PCN # 1690p states:

"In rare instances, S8300 servers running Communication Manager Releases 5.2 and 5.2.1 enter a state where the server appears to be locked up. When this occurs the server is unable to provide service. After a period of approximately 6 minutes the Media Gateway recovers the server by forcing a full Linux reboot"

Is this due to the SSD running out of space? If so, does this patch allow for overwriting of certain files on the SSD as away to mitigate the lack of available space?

The PCN is not related to the functionality of the SSD and HDD. It is about server lockups.

As far as your first question, the internal CF card is where most of the server's software is located. It boots to the CF card, and Linux and the OS are on the CF card. The hard drive is for the /var files ystem, where logs, home directories, and many other things are, including messaging.

There is no recovery from the hard drive. The system is installed across the two devices - there is no replication.
