I am trying to upgrade a RAID 1, virtual disk configuration on a DELL PERC 710 controller. Drive space has become an issue. My initial thought on how this might work was to do it through Dell Open Manage ( Server needs to be online) and select the replace member disk function through the virtual array options and replace it with the larger disk, after that is completed, then I would repeat the same process on the other disk as well.
What I am unclear of if the PERC 710 permits this? From what I read in the manual, it doesn't state that it can't be done and it seems under the virtual disk, replace member disk option, that it is possible. Will this work just on failed disks or can it be used on a functioning disks as well?
