Resize / Repartition Windows Server 2003 RAID Array
Posted on 2009-04-14
We have a Windows Server 2003 system running on a RAID 10 array configured with 12gb for C: Primary partition and 57gb for D:
We are replacing the 36gb hard drives with 300gb sas hard drives and would like to resize the partitions.
C: needs at least another 20gb for growth of windows updates, etc....
D: would get all the rest of the space ~270gb
OR we could make the whole thing into C: (nobody cares)
How do we go about doing this? I know that the array will rebuild automatically onto the 300gb drives when we swap them out (one at a time).
Will we need to go into the RAID controller and change the partitions?
What tools can we use to repartition the drives after everything is done?
Is there anything free that works? I know of Acronis Disk Director Server - would the trial do the job?
I need all the help I can get
