RAID

RAID stands for Redundant Array of Independent Disks.

RAID is data storage technology that allows multiple drives to be used together as a single virtual drive for reasons such as fault tolerance, reliability and performance.

There are several different levels of RAID that determine how the data is stored and the level of redundancy achieved across the drives.

My client has an HP Proliant ML350G6 server. OS is on a pair of mirrored 145GB drives. Data is on a RAID 5 array of 1TB drives. The OS drives are getting really full after years of updates. These are 2.5" SAS drives. What would be the best way to get the OS on to larger drives short of a new server? Is it even possible? OS is Server 2008 R2.

Hello,
I am using the RAID-1 configuration for my HDD . Before starting the Windows installation i have set the RAID in BIOS .
then go to CTRL+I and create the raid for my HDD and console was showing NORMAL ( GREEN)
STEP 2 : Now when i start the windows installation , the Windows need the raid driver for detecting my HDD . i provide it and HDD detected . The Windows installation starts . ..

Now When the installation reached the last STEP of WIndows 7 installation : " COMPLETE INSTALLATION STEP"

and the System Restart . I see one problem ..

The RAID HDD status changes from NORMAL to INITIALIZE MODE . so can any one answer actually i want the HDD to be in NORMAL Mode only . please suggest is this normal ?
