I have an HP server that was configured with 2 drives (RAID 1). C drive is running out of space. HP 400 Controller. I am given the option to migrate/change RAID configuration with the addition of the 3rd drive in a new array RAID 0. Wanted to verify I can change the RAID configuration to RAID 0 so that this gives me 3 drives as C drive and then convert to RAID 5 with this controller and do it correctly as I cannot afford to brick a production server and rebuild...
Need some help as the 400 controller I believe is limited on what it can and cannot do through the ACU. My thoughts are the 400i series controller allows better "live" configuration.
How would you handle this issue and steps? I would rather P2V this old app server but need a quicker fix until I add a 4th host so that I can maintain N+1.
Many thanks for your help!
