I have a client that has a Dell PowerEdge 830. It has two hard drives that are mirrored that are each 30 gig (yes it is an old server). The mirroring is being run by the controller software and not Windows.
We want to upgrade these two hard drives to 250 gig hard drives and mirror them, then discard the two 30 gig hard drives.
I have the software to copy the partition over from one hard drive to the other.
Here is my question, since I have not worked with mirroring on older Dell servers.
When I beak the mirror in the controller software, must I have the controller software format the new hard drives before I can copy the partition over?
What are the best steps in doing this?
