have a situation with a dell poweredge t320, including a perc h310 raid card
server 2012, dell poweredge t320
omsa version 7.2.0
perc h310 firmware: 20.11.0-0002
perc driver: 5.02.220.64
storport driver: 6.2.9200.16547
three existing hard drives make up one raid5 container/virtual disk
we have three new drives (all 6 hotswap, all identical to each other including FW version of each drive) which are seen in the omsa software.
we would like to add two to the existing virtual disk (and subsequently expand the size in windows), and assign the 3rd new drive as an online hotspare
thru omsa > system > storage > i was able to import the 'foreign' media, now they're listed as "not named 1 / 2 / 3"
but, under the same area or under system > storage > perc > connector 0 > virtual disks - i can't find anywhere that says to assign drives to the container
i did find assign hotspare, but it says there are no drives available that can be made a hotspare
logically, when i select virtual disk 0, and 'reconfigure' - i should be able to add them there. all i see there is connector 0 and its 3 drives (current virtual disk) - i cannot select "connector 1", and the 3 new drives are not listed
existing virtual disk drives:
what am i missing here? i've done this lots of times before on other dell servers
