Upgrade harddisk capacity on RAID-1 setup
Posted on 2004-10-11
I have a Compaq DL360 (1. generation) that I have just upgraded from 2x18GB SCSI to 2x36GB SCSI harddisk. I'm running RAID-1 (mirror) on these 2 disks.
I first replaced the 1. drive with one 36GB and then let the server do rebuilding - and done this for the second disk as well. But now I have 2x36Gb disk that only shows up as 2x18 GB, probably because the rebuilding was initially done from a 18GB.
I now thought that I could just use a partition tool to resize the partition to use the rest unallocated space - but this can't be done as the SCSI/RAID controller shows the 2x36 disks as 1x18GB disk.
How can I make my 2x36 disks actually make use of the complete space available in my RAID-1 setup?
