I have a Dell PE 2950 currently with RAID 1 SAS drives set up for the OS and some data.  I want to add 4 SATA drives in a RAID 5 configuration to the server.  Can someone help me with the step by step?

1) Download the SAS controller documentation from DELL

2) You should be able to plug in the 4 new drives and create a new RAID 5 set.

Then use windows Disk manager to create partitions and format.


I hope this helps !
