Need to replace HDs in a Raid 5 with bigger HDs
Posted on 2005-04-06
I have a raid 5 container with 3x74gb scsi and 1 failover. I want to increase the size of the container. I have bought 4x146gb SCSI HDs. I was wondering if there is anyway to do this without bringing down the server. I have read if i take 1 out, replace it with the bigger one, wait for it to rebuild and keeping doing that until the container is fully rebuild that will work. Is this the correct way or is there another way to do this.
I have dell PE 2650, running win2k3 server and my exchange is on this.
