Removing a drive from a RAID 5 Array
Posted on 2006-03-27
Hi, i have a setup on a HP DL380 using a 6400 raid card where i currently have 4 disks in a raid 5 array, 3x144Gb + 1x72Gb giving me 216Gb(3x72), i have already replaced 3x72GBs with the 144s and now i wish to remove the last 72Gb out of the array and then expand all the three 144s to full capacity giving me 288(2x144). OK, can you pls tell me if this is possible (and how to) using HPs Array Config util as windows 2003 obviously only sees 1 drive at 216Gb cause its not handling the array.
I hope this make sense.....
Thanks - Shane
