I need to add two additional hard drives to an already configure raid 5 array. the machine is a dell pe2850 with perc 4e/di raid controller. I tryed to install dell Open manage server adminstrator where I'm told it's a snap to use and complete this task but the applicataion crashes on install. so I'm left with the embedded perc 4e/di and I am not comfortable enough to use it with out help.
When I go to configure/add drives the only option I get is set them up as raid-0 or raid-1. Is there anyone in here that has experience with perc 4e/di configuration menu that can help me? My bigest concern is not wanted wipe the data from the 3 previously configure raid 5 disks. My objective is to add the additional disk to the array for expanded disk space to the OS.
