This is on a Dell PowerEdge R720.
It has RHEL6 installed and is configured to use a RAID 0 Virtual Disk.
RAID 0 is no good for redundancy so I want to build a new Virtual Disk and configure it as a RAID 1.

After setting up the new RAID, I would like to clone the OS and the data from the RAID 0 to the RAID 1.
Then, change the boot options so the server boots from the RAID 1 only and get rid of the RAID 0 array entirely.

Is there a way I can do this? I am hoping to avoid having to completely re-install the OS and applications.
