Expanding Mirrored drives to larger hard drives
Posted on 2008-02-01
System is a ML350 G4 with the onboard raid controller. There are two drives, mirrored running SBS 2003. The drive has 700MB of free space and VSS, file rep, etc... has stopped working becasue of this. I would like to swap the drives one at a time to large 72GB drives waiting until they rebuild each, and then expand the array. First of all, is this possible with the controller? If not can I use Windows or a 3rd party program ( Partition Magic) to do this? I have removed all programs, logs, exchange is on a different drive as well as the page file, from the system partition. I belive adding larger drives is my last option.
