HPML110 G6, migrate raid level from 1 to 10 with HP Smart Array B110i
Posted on 2015-02-19
I have a Hp Proliant 110 G6 server, some years ago, we installed it with two drives in a Raid 1 configuration, the space is running out and we want to upgrade to Raid 10..
I have two options,
Buy two identical drives, upgrade from raid 1 to 10, can I do it on the fly?, or do I have to restore from backup?
Buy four bigger drivers, destroy the array, change the array to raid 10, restore from backup. (I know this will work)
If I destroy the array, put four new drives, configure raid 10, restore from backup, if something goes wrong, Can I insert my old disks, create back the raid 1 configuration and start Windows? Or am I fried??
