HP Proliant DL360 - Upgrade Hard Drives
Posted on 2007-07-23
My exchange server (Windows 2003 & Exchange 2003) is an HP Proliant DL360 G4 server with a SmartArray 6i controller (two 36.4GB Ultra320 SCSI drives). I'm running very low on space and I'd like to upgrade but I'm not really sure how to go about it. An HP sales rep told me that the maximum compatible hard drive for this server would be a 300GB U320 10K Universal HDD.
Bear with me - it's been a really long time since A+ class... If I buy two new 300GB hard drives - how do I go about getting my data from the 36.4GB drives over to the 300GB drives? I'd like to think it's as easy as popping one out, replacing it with a new one, letting the data replicate and then doing the same with the second new drive but something tells me that's just not right. If anyone could give me some guidance, I'd really appreciate it :)
