Increase the size of a raid 1 array
Posted on 2012-09-09
I have an IBM server with a IBM ServeRAID 8K-I raid controller. It has a RAID 1 array on it with 2 SAS 300gb HDDs. The mirror is split into a c partition and a d partition. I am running out of space. I have purchased 2 SAS 600gb drives and need to determine the easiest way to get them installed.
I thought I could replace them one at a time and let the mirror rebuild itself each time but I am not sure how to resize the partitions. The other option is I could put both new SAS drives in, create my mirror, then use my most recent acronis image to restore.
any advice would be greatly appreciated.
