I have a PERC 6i card which has an existing 1 disk RAID0 virtual disk configured on it. I want to add a new physical disk to this virtual disk so that it runs as RAID1.
I'm going through the "reconfigure virtual disk" wizard in Openmanage, and it lets me add the second disk to the virtual disk. It then asks me the RAID level, which I specify as RAID 1. However there is no indication of whether, when I press the complete button, it will mirror the existing data onto the new disk, or whether it will wipe the original disk and start a mirror from scratch.
Before I do this I want to be sure there is no chance at all of me losing data - please could anyone confirm?
