I have an IBM system X3500 file server that has four hard drives installed. They are setup in a RAID 5 environment. I am running low on disk space and I want to be able to add additional drives to increase the storage capacity of this server.
I have other identical drives that I can add to this server. They are hot swappable. Is there a way for me to just add these drives and then have them added on to the RAID 5 configuration in such a way as I will be able to increase the storage capacity of this server without wiping the data and setup up the server from scratch.
Thanks for your input.
