I have a dell PowerEdge R610 physical server (W/Perc H700 Raid Controller) that is setup as an esxi 6.0 host. The 3 internal disks are setup in raid 0 for some reason and i want to know if i could swap the prefailed drive with a new one (which i already know will kill the raid 0 array configuration) will i be able to rebuild the raid array to be raid 1 with Dell EMC OpenManage Server Administrator (OMSA) without shutting down server? The hard drives are not dell certified disks.
