Dell RAID controller

pchettri asked
Last Modified: 2016-12-08
I got two Dell perc controller with connecter 0 and 1. Connector 0 shows to 70 gb SAS and 2 140 gb sata and connector 1 shows 3 140 gb sata. Is there a way to rebuilt the raid without damaging OS. I do not know the disk that integrated to C and E drive. I do not want to make changes to C drive and loose OS and license. But I am planning to add more space to E drive by adding newer disk with more storage.
This used to be an old exchange server, now I want to use this as witness server, if I create DAG and as archive server for archive enabled mail as as backup server to backup file using vdp appliance.
Is it easier to take symantec image of OS and repliace all disk and load OS using symantec BE 13 bare metal image, if RAID drive configuration does not get messed up during the process?
