How can I prepare for adding a hdd in the future without having to re-format RAID set(native win 2003 server tools)?
Posted on 2006-07-13
I want to build my server (win 2003 R2) using native OS RAID software using three disks in Raid5. Can dynamic disks allow me to later add in another drive to the raid set without blowing it away?
If so, what are the general requirements and steps?
Downtime is fine, I just want the space to grow in the future without having to take the data off, re-do a raid set with more drives, and then restore the data.
