Raid 5 to Raid 1 without loosing information..
Posted on 2013-05-25
we have a Dell PowerEdge R710 that has a PERC H700, it has to virtual drives, the first one is OK in Raid 1 with two physical disks, but the second one is configured (I don´t know why) as Raid 5 but it only has two disks 600gb each, I know you need three disk so Raid 5 can work, so it is saying that we have a Degrated virtual drive...
If you into the configuration of the Raid, it says that we have one missing drive, we need to purchase another physical drive to be able to have the virtual disk in Raid 5.
The virtual disk is supposed to be 1,200GB, but we only have 600GB because it hasent been able to run in Raid 5, so, my question is the following:
Is it running on Raid 1 now until we insert another 600Gb disk?
Can I change it to Raid 1 instead of Raid 5 withouth loosing anything?
