Add storage to Raid 5 set.
Posted on 2007-04-04
I have a Dell PowerEdge 2650 with a Raid 5 set made up of (4) 68 GB drive. There is also one hotspare. This give me 136 GB. Of that, I have 12 GB for my C: drive and 124 GB on my D drive. I need to make my D drive bigger. Is there anyway without rebuidling the server that I can add larger drives to the Raid set. Ie. replace drive 0 with a 120GB drive , let the set rebuild, replace drive 1with a 120 gb drive, let the set rebuild..., replace drive 2 with a 120, let the set rebuild, replace hotspare with 120 gb rebuild....I would like a total of 240 gb in the Raid set..
