this depends a lot on the raid controller as to whether or not you can simply add an extra drive and create or expand the raid.
Personally - I prefer to use a disk imaging product such as storage craft shadow protect to image the server off and then put it back on after creating the raid - this will also fix any related driver issues

If you are using a RAID controller, then what is the make / model?   Some controllers, such has HP's smartarray let you migrate from a non-RAID to a RAID1 while the system is online.  Other controllers require you to backup, reformat, then restore.

If you are not using a controller, then what o/s are you running?  All the UNIX variations have built-in RAID  software, and even some versions of windows do.   However, there is no universal standard for migrating from a single disk to an array.

So if you want specific answers for your config, please provide the details.
