We have a Windows 2008 HP server with eight SAS hard drive bays. Five of which are configure to one logical hard drive with three partitions. My questions are
• Using the HP Array Configuration Utility how do I create extra space by adding the three new SAS drives in bays 6, 7 and 8 to the RAID?
• Will this affect any data on the server?
• How then do I then share out the space to the various drives as I don’t want it to be just unallocated space at the end of the logical drive?
• Can I do this from within the above utility or use something like EaseUs Partition tool?
