How to Extend RAID 1 partition?
Posted on 2009-07-07
Our server is a Dell PowerEdge 860 running Windows 2003 with SAS disks. RAID 1 was running between two 140GB disks. There were two partitions created, C: for system and D: for data.
We ran out of space and so purchased two 1TB drives. We installed them one by one letting the RAID 1 rebuild. So now we have two 1TB drives in the server but in Windows it shows the virtual drive with 140GB of space.
Now that we have the drives in and mirrored I would like to extend the D: partition to consume the now available space on the 1TB drive. Unfortunatley Windows only sees the 140GB so I cannot extend.
I booted into the LSI Logic Config Utility For Dell SAS 5 extend v6.12.02.00 and can find no way to extend the volume here either. Any pointers greatly appreciated!
