Hard disk change
Posted on 2006-06-10
I need to change one hard disk with another one.
I have a raid 5 and i use hp array utility.
My disk is perfectly OK. I can do it offline, so no problem with turning off the server.
I want to fail the disk and replace it with another one(larger capacity). I know this will not increase my capacity, but i just need to do this for now.
What should i exactly do:
Turn off the server.
Remove the disk.
Replace the disk
Start the server.
Please this is a backup DC, and i haven't done this before, so i just want to make sure.
Should i do anything in the array utility, no hotspare is configured.
