Adding HD space to Dell Poweredge 1600SC with Raid 1
Posted on 2006-04-13
I have a DELL Power Edge 1600SC with two 32GB hard drives set up in Raid 1 configuration. I am running Dell Open Manage Array Manager. Server OS is windows 2000. I have my "virtual" drive of 32 GB partitioned into logical partitions C: and D:.
I am running out of space on C:.
Can I just add two more drives to the array (36GB each) and then allocate somehow the new 36GB virtual space to the C: drive (or some to c: and some to d:) fairly easliy?
Do I need 3rd party partitioning software to make C: bigger?
Is this a non-destructive process.
If someone could outline my steps for the easiest route to making more space on C: and D: that would be great.
