upgrading disks on a HP Proliant ML570
Posted on 2004-08-02
Current Array A of 3 X 36 (Raid 5 scsi ids 0;0, 0;1 0;2) Logical drive 1
New array B of 3 X 72 (Raid 5 scsi ids 0;3, 0;4 0;5) Logical Drive 2
Both arrays controlled by Smart Array 431
Would eventually remove current Array A after the data migration to Array B is completed.
Logical Drive 1 has 3 partitions: Compaq System partition, C 7.5 GB (4 GB used) and D (about 62 GB, 50 GB used)
Logical drive 2 is about 130 GB total size.
What would be recommended way to transfer the C and D drive's data to the new Logical drive?
I know that I have to backup and restore for data in D drive, anyone tried to use ghost to image c drive and ghost image back to new logical drive and then bootup from the new logical drive.
(using ghost 7.5, partition to Image of C drive (LDrive 1), when tried to bring image back, could only use Image to Disk so now Logical drive 2 contains only files from C drive)
How would the new boot.ini on the logical drive 1 look like? (I still need to use the D drive from Logical drive 1, before I can transfer to LDrive2)
multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(2)\WINNT="Microsoft Windows 2000" /fastdetect
New boot.ini from Logical Drive 1 will be like below? (correct or not?)
multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(1)partition(1)\WINNT="Microsoft Windows 2000" /fastdetect
