I have a DL 385 G7 that is realy to go into production but I got are error on the setup of the RAID configuration. The drives that host the Windows OS were setup with a RAID 0 instead of a RAID 1+0. Which mean if one drive goes down the whole server crashes. Can I migrate from a RAID 0 to 1+0 with out redoiong the whole server and applicatins which so weeks to setup and test.

RAID 0 has no fault tolerance correct??? How would you recover from a failed HD in a RAID 0?

you cannot recover from a RAID 0 failure

You cannot migrate from RAID 0 to RAID 0+1 as this would require a resync on the raid array thus wiping your configuration, if you are not prepared to purchase additional software I think you will be a little stuck.

If you don't have ghost or Acronis them use clonezilla. The only way to change this raid that I know d is to image the data, wipe and reset the raid how you want, then plop the image back on.
