How to clone hard drives (RAID-1 to RAID-1) in PowerEdge 1950?
Posted on 2010-08-31
I would to clone RAID-1 to newly created another RAID-1 in Dell PowerEdge 1950 server. Currently I have 2 73GB SAS hard drives installed and configured as RAID-1. Windows Server 2003 is installed on this RAID-1.
Due to lack of space, I added 2 146GB SAS hard drives and created a RAID-1 array using Dell OpenManage PowerEdge Administrator tool.
Dell PowerEdge 1950 Server
Windows Server 2003 R2 x64 Standard Edition (as a Terminal Server)
73GB SAS HDD (RAID-1 config)
SAS 6/iR integrated controller
1.) How can I clone 73GB hard drive into 146GB hard drive (i.e., RAID-1 to another RAID-1)?
2.) What type of software is best suitable to PowerEdge 1950 server?
3.) Can I do it when server in online? i.e., on the fly disk clone?
Any quick help would be greatly appreciated?
