Raid 1 to Raid 5 Upgrade
Posted on 2006-07-24
We a have a DELL server (Poweredge 1420) with 2 x 73 GB (US320) in RAID1 mode (mirroring). I got a new HD for upgroading the capacity of the server (same mark-model). Then I pretend that the better option would be a RAID5 configuration.
I just have plug the HD to the same SCSI 320 channel and I tried to boot, but SCSI Bios fails. It seems that it does not detect anything and showme "....detecting...." etc. My questions are:
Must I configure anything special with the SCSI Chains? Sort disks position? (I have no experience at all about SCSI world)
Must I configure anything special at Windows 2003 Server? Must I format or make new partitions?
Thank you all
