I have a HP DL380 G3 server with 4 - 146.8 GB Ultra SCSI disks set up in a raid 5. Our RAID controller is Smart Array 532 controller. It is running Windows Small Business Server 2003 and reports that the C: drive has a capacity of aprox 273 GB. We are about to purchase 2 more 146.8 GB Ultra SCSI disks to increase the capacity of the C: drive.  I open up the ACU utility ( and it reports that there is a 5i controller embedded into it but the drives are useing the 532. The only thing on the 5i is our backup tape drive. Is it possible to add another 2 drives and expand our current logical (C:) drive?
