Adding drives to existing raid5? How to expand partition space?
Posted on 2006-07-21
We have an IBM xseries server running a 3 drive raid5 config with a raid5i controller. These drives are 36.4 SCSI U320
We currently have two partitions set up in Windows 2003 SBS, the exhcnage parition which has 48gb and the C: partition with has 19GB
Both partitions, mainly C: are running out of space, currently there is 20gb free on D: (which is exchange) and 4gb free on c: which is the system.
They are not dynamic, I have purchased three new drives of the exact same kind. How do I add them to the existing array and add more space to both partitions successfully?
Can parition magic do this? We have version 6 of serveraid manager installed.
