    Depends on what is on Hard Disk 0.

    If this drive holds the SYS: Volume of the NetWare server, which is kinda like the root (/) partition in UNIX/Linux, then you're going to have to re-install.

    Alternatively, you can simply add the drive to the existing system (if there are sufficient connectors, power leads, bays, etc) and create a new Volume or expand an existing one.

    Could do with some more details of any raid configs you have, scsi/ide etc etc.. If you don't want to reinstall you could image the server using Storage Manager from then change the discs and image back.

    It  would also help to know what your NSS partition/volume configuration is, and whether or not you have traditional volumes.

    NSS makes it easier to expand volumes, but won't necessarily make it easy to swap out a disk drive with a bigger one.

    You can mirror to a bigger physical disk with traditional, but  that doesn't  necessarily expand the volume.   Again, it helps to know what your current hardware / partition / volume / filesystem configuration is.
