The HP array is split between two servers, 7 drive slots to each controller. We are replacing 6 of the current 72GB drives (one of which has failed) on controller 1 in server #1 with 4 300GB drives. There are enough slots on the second controller on server #2 for me to install the4x300 disks, carve a large drive and move the data over from server #1's failing array.
My question is, can I build the new LUN/drive config on the second controller on server #2 then remove the 72GB drives on controller 1 in server #1, move the 4x300GB drives over to controller 1 and have the new large logical drive appear on server #1? Will the array/controller #1 see the new drives as a carved LUN or will it have to be reconfigured?
