Resizing a RAID 5 array
Posted on 2005-03-22
I'm trying to resize the boot partition on a Dell Poweredge 2550 server running a PERC3/Di RAID controller. We have 3 drives in this machine and the array has two logical drives C: and E:. The C drive only has like 4 gigs available while the E drive has almost 30 gigs free. I'm using Volume Manager 2.0 but it won't let me redistribute the free space between the two logical drives. I tried to resize the larger E: drive down to about 26 gigs so I have 4 gigs of unallocated space. However it wont let me move or redistribute this space to the C: partition. Any ideas?
