How to expand MSA30 with 7 146GB disk array to 7 300GB disk array for ESX3.5 on DL380
Posted on 2008-10-21
I have HP DL380 G5 with internal drives allocated in RAID 1 and RAID 5. I have MSA30 connected with 7 146GB drives. I have 7 300GB drives that I would like to replace the original array with. Other than unplugging drives one at a time, waiting for the RAID to rebuild and repeating, what are other ways of expanding the array to use my 300GB drives? The 2nd channel of the MSA30 is empty, but I only have a single channel card in my DL380.
