I was looking for some insight to what we are about to do. We have an HP Proliant ML350 G3 server running 2000 server. We are going to swap out all 6 72.8 GB drives with 146.8 GB drives. According to HP it is as simple as ensuring we have a good backup(we do), installing the latest firmware for the controller(I have) and then just pulling out one drive at a time and replace it with the new one. Does that sound about right?
After the drives are all installed we would like to extend the size of our networked drives. We were looking at Paragon's Partition Magic to just make the existing drives bigger. Will that work or will we need to create new netwoked drives and copy all the files to the new ones and then delete the old ones.
I look foward to some insight from the pros on this as this will be a first for both me and the guy helping me.
