Reconfigure concatenated virtual disk to RAID 1
Posted on 2007-11-21
Our client has a Poweredge 1650 with a Perc 3/Di controller in it. It's got two 36gb drives in a RAID 1 mirror. There are two containers, a 4gb container and a 30gb container. Drive 1 was removed and replaced with a 70gb drive, which started to sync and failed. We went back to the original 36gb drive and managed to get the system running again. The problem is that the 4gb container resynced just fine to the old disk, but the 30gb container shows concatenated in the array manager. I've attempted to reconfigure the virtual disk to a RAID 1 mirror, but it errors out with error number 2. On the physical disk tab it shows that all 36gb is assigned on Drive 0, but only 4 gb is assigned on Drive 1 (due to the concatenation). How can I get my 30gb container back into a mirror?
P.S. Running the latest firmware and drivers available from Dell.
