Expand a simple Raid 1
Posted on 2011-09-16
I have a Dell Poweredge SC420. I have a simple Raid1 with 2 Qty: 80GB HDDs. It is just using the onboard SATA controller. There are also 2 additional SATA ports, just not 2 additional SATA power cables!
If I remove one of the 80's, and put in a 250, will the RAID rebuild from the 80 onto the 250? Then, I will substitute the remaining 80 with another 250, so it will rebuild back to the other 250. I'm hoping to have a final result of 2 Qty 250 HDDs.
Then I would just use Disk Management to extend the partitions into the empty space.
Is this too simple to work?
