Hi Experts,

I have HP Server which is running critical applications.
This server needs an additional Raid5 with 3 new disks.
Is this possible to create in running state without booting the server ?
Is it maybe possible to configure with ILO ?

Yes you should be able to do this with HP Array Configuration Utility for Windows.
I don't know what RAID card or server you are running so the download in the link might work. It will either discover the RAID card or not so no harm done. Of course take care when creating any additional RAIDs and make sure you are not affecting the existing RAID :)

so when I am right,

I can go to the server and just plug in the new disks into the slots.
later on I can start the software on the server and configure the raid through the gui.
Right ?
