Rebuilding Raid of Poweredge 2900
Posted on 2010-11-17
I am need of some advice. Here is what I am trying to accomplish. I have a Pweredge 2900, Windows Server 2003 with 3 -160gb sata drives and I am trying to replace them with 3 - 300gb sas drives. I can get them to show up in the OMSA and Bios Configuration Utility as ready but I can not get any further. What I believe I have found out is I cannot mix and match SATA and SAS drives in the same array. What I have done is put my 3 SAS drives in the 2nd enclosure and have created a new VD2 out of them. What I think I can do from here is copy the VD1 to VD2 and then unload VD1 having VD2 take over. I have tried to find the best way to get this done and I don't believe I have found the best way, does any one have any advice.
