Currently, the system has 2 x gb SAS drives running in raid 1, and 3 x gb sata drives running in raid 5 to 1tb Anyone Moved a Raid array. But then, I finally just thought, I’m not sure of the process of how to migrate the drives using this RAID controller If you do try it through RAID expansion, the process is usually something like: I will then swap over the HDD guess will need to shut it down to do that?!

Restart server, server complained disk missing, do I want to go to raid software. But, I’m a bit unsure of the next step Glad I did, took ages for the whole process to complete Well, all went well How rsid I make the new ls larger? Restarted, and same process as above 5. The raid 1 setup is used for most accessed stuff, like my documents, shared folders etc, with the 1tb raid 5 mainly used for software installs and multimedia storage Results 1 to 6 of 6.
But then, I finally just thought, I’m not sure of lsii process of how to migrate the drives using this RAID controller Wonder how long that will take, hehe. So thumbsup on that. Went to software, and saw it was rebuilding array.
Replace one existing disk in the array with larger disk Allow the array to rebuild until it is completely healthy again Replace next disk, and repeat steps 1 and 2 until all the disks have been replaced with larger ones and the array is healthy Go into the array controller BIOS or Windows-based GUI tools and expand the array to make use of the larger disks note – this isn’t supported by all RAID cards Once the array is expanded and healthy again, go into Windows disk management and expand the disk volume to make use of the newly available space if the OS isn’t Windows or you run into problems, check out GParted Cheers, Chris.
The time now is I’ve seen this work before in theory like you’ve described, but I’ve also seen it go horribly wrong. Will be looking at taking full backups beforehand, so that don’t need to worry rakd loss of data hopefully!!!! Restart in to radi startup disk to re-allocate the partition sizes could’ve skipped this, but I wanted to increase the 1st partition size as well as the 2nd.
But, all went well. Do I need to do something similar to the following link: Wait about 8 hours for the array to finish rebuilding, by which time I Had gone home, as took ages for the backup to complete!
Glad you got it sorted out. If you do try it through Raiid expansion, the process is usually something like: Currently, the system has 2 x gb SAS drives running in raid 1, and 3 x gb sata drives running in raid 5 to 1tb Anyone Moved a Raid array.
Wait for ages whilst it does the background initialisation. Restart, go to raid software, and tell it to expand the array.

Will do anyway, just to be safe. Are you confident that your backups lsk good and will restore as expected? I will then click the Replace Physical drive option in the software: Got back in in the morning, shut down, and removed second disk.
The 1tb is fine, but it’s the gb that’s running low. Has anyone done it before?
Leblanc in forum Hardware. Woohoo, another gb of stuff for the staff to fill up! Thanks to Duke from: I will then swap over the HDD guess will need to shut it down to do that?!
So, at one of my schools, the HDD storage is getting a little thin on the ground
