I have a new customer that has run out of disk space on a Dell PE T110 Server running Winserver 2008 essentials. The Server came with 250GB SATA drives with built in PERC s100 RAID in RAID 1. I need to upgrade them to at least 1TB SATA hard drives & still maintain RAID 1.
If I remove all drives, use a disk duplicator to duplicate just drive 0, then install it in the server along with a bare drive 1, the controller should see a failed drive 1 & rebuild the RAID. Am I missing something?
