Using ServeRaid Manager to expand logical RAID 5 drive, does data get lost?
Posted on 2008-11-05
I have just doubled my RAID 5 drives (5 73GB to 5 143GB capacity). I would like to know the SAFEST way to expand the data capacity. I have Windows 2003 on the existing IBM 3550 server. should I:
a.) create a second logical drive in ServeRaid Manager, then use Windows disk manager to "grow" the partition.
or B: use ServeRaid Manager to expand the logical drive. If I do this, do I run the risk of losing my data on my existing logical drive?
Thanks In advance!
