Increasing Space on a Raid 5 configuration
Posted on 2003-03-13
The hardware we are using is:
Compaq ML370 Server
Compaq 431 Raid Controler
We replaced (not added) 9 gig drives with 36 gig drives.
We replaced (not added) 9 gig drives with 36 gig drives. So currently we have 3 36 gig drives using only 9 gigs worth of space (as would be expected). We want to be able to utilize the rest of the space, but got worried that we were doing something wrong (seemed too good to be true).
To realize the extra space, is it as simple as using the array configuration utility? Or what would be the best way to see all of the 36 gig drives?
