I am planning to upgrade an existing Windows 2003 server with new hard drives.
The existing configuration is as follows;
HP ML350 G3
6 * 36GB RAID 5 (C: 72GB, E:100GB)
Ultium Tape Drive 800GB
OS - Windows 2003 Server
DNS / DHCP
I plan to replace the 6 * 36GB with 6 * 148GB (C:240GB, E:500GB)
Here are the steps I intend to perform
1. Replace physical disks in RAID cage
2. Configure new RAID
3. Install Windows 2003 server
4. Install Tape drive
5. Full restore from tape
6. Restart system
These steps seem pretty straight forward Is there something Im missing?
