Upgrade drives in Raid 1
Posted on 2011-05-09
I have a windows server 2003 that has two seagate Sata 2 160gb drives. I believe the Raid Controller is a SAS/SAS5/IR. Server is a PowerEdge 840. I would like to upgrade these to 1TB drives, but would appreciate any feedback on the best steps to complete this. I was going to do a bare metal backup, replace the drives, then restore the image. However, I am not sure that is the best method. I am also not sure the exact steps on the RAID cotroller that must be completed. I rarely have to do this, so your help is greatly appreciated.
