We have a PE 1950 (2 drive slots) with two 160G (3.5", 7.2k) SATA2 drives that we want to
upgrade to larger capacity drives (400G+) . I would like to know what would be the easiest
way to do this, with the least downtime.
The ideal solution (which we don't know is possible) would be to break the mirror,
repalce drive #2 with one of the new drives and rebuild. Then do the same with
drive #1. Finally expand the size of the volume. But we're not sure this is possible
with the PERC 5/i.
A similar question (http://www.experts-exchange.com/Storage/Backup_Restore/Q_26228168.html
was posted here, but they have a SAS setup, and we rather avoid the third party cloning software
solution as suggested there if at all possible.
