Adding space to my Poweredge 2800. Got Questions..
Posted on 2006-10-27
I am adding 2 drives to my server this weekend for more space. This is a file server. I have a raid 5 config Basic with 2 partitions. I am running out of space on the extended partition. Once I add my 2 new drives should I just create new volumes or extend a new partion? I know extending the partion runs the risk of data loss. What would you do? It is just data so I can move it around.
Also this is my frst time doing this. Any tips or suggestions? Yes I have backed up my data.
